Absolutely iconic example of this important type of dagger or short sword! Just under 8 ¾” total length with elegant wedge section blade with fine concave dropped point. Whittle tang for mounting in a bone, wood, or antler grip without a guard. See  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/587227238902862536/ for similar examples in the City of London Museum and particularly the sixth example described as Type IV. Also, see https://www.pinterest.com/pin/265360603018587566/ #24 and 25 for virtually identical examples found in the Thames in London. A cut and thrust weapon in its ultimate form with a thin sharp slashing edge and acutely angled point. Form which embraced by invading Vikings and evolved into one of their iconic weapons. With Plexiglas display easel and certificate of authenticity.
