"Throwing dirk". Pointed, elongated, double-edged, slightly recurved blade, widening to a point near the grip, below which the side contracts sharply. On each face, an incised wavy line in place of a medial ridge, and four incised X's. The tang extends through the spool-shaped wooden grip wound round its middle with thin brass wire, and becomes a heavy diamond-shaped pommel with facetted convex end.
