Neolithic Flint Dagger from Sweden, 2500 BC

About

Neolithic flint dagger from Sweden, dating to 2500 - 1800 BC. Pressure flaked from a piece of light brown flint with white inclusions, the blade is leaf shaped and of near perfect symmetrical form, the edges and front of the hilt with finely worked 'stitching'. As the societies of prehistoric Europe began to adopt metalworking, the ancient Scandinavians continued in their use of flint, delighting in the art of this old craft. This fine dagger imitates the form of bronze weapons that were circulating in Europe at the time, the stitching on the hilt likely intended to mimic a leather sheath. Provenance: Henning Catos collection, Sweden. With Swedish export licence.
