For construction and general type cf. 29-93-31. This has a longer blade with a slightly convex cutting edge, and the dsic through which the tang passes in the case of 29-93-31 is here wanting. The carving of the ivory handle represents two kneeling demons, back to back, supporting a third on their shoulders, all partly surrounded by what appears to be conventionalized foliage.
