Pre-Roman Briton. 9 3/4” total length. Inside curved wedge section blade with single narrow fuller to the right and double to the left. Broad tang for antler or bone scale grips, without a guard. Celts preferred a slashing knife. Increased size translates to a slower attack and with a moving target, decreased accuracy. This blade form derives from the overhand back slash capable of tearing a man’s throat to the spine but at the price of the loss of primary frontal protection.
