14th century. Forged iron with exposed tang for scale grips (antler, bone or wood) and a bronze mount each side stopping the grips and two grip rivets. 7" total length. Especially thick wedge section blade. Distinctive form. That these are weapons and not utensils is shown by the fact that they are found in full original profile and not reduced from sharpening as working knives are. Recovered in Southern Germany on the route to the Danube and Ottoman Frontier.
