Knife 11

Original
 
Found: Sweden
Age: late bronze age

Mould
 
For this knive I used a soapstone mould. This is the same mould in which I cast the wheel headed pins and razors.

Casting result
 
Here are the cast knives. Although the knives are complete, the detail on them is not good, which points to gassing of the mould. This is a bit strange, as the razor and pin next to it give perfectly detailed castings.
