Knife 7

Original
 
Found: Germany
Age: late bronze age

Mould
 
The mould is made from clay and sand, and has been fired.

Casting result
The casting result is reasonably good, although the blade has turned out too thick.

Finishing
The blade is finished with modern tools, as quite a bit of bronze had to be ground off.

Finished knife
The blade is attached to a hilt of red deer antler. In Germany, several examples of this type of knife have been found with such hilts still attached.
