18 D-642 Type IV-E Dagger Made from Danish flint


18 D-642 Small Type IV-E Dagger made from Danish flint. This dagger was made from some of the last of the flint I personally collected in Denmark on our 1993 trip to that country.  This is the gray boulder flint from Falster that has been slightly heat treated to make it better for daggers. The stitching in the center of the handle on the show side is the best I could do in such tough material and the handle end of the preform was so thin it was surprising that I was able to get any stitching at all let alone the two stage stitching which is normal for this type! Also has nice side and pommel stitching. The blade is mostly percussion flaked with some pressure finishing around the edges. As with all Type IV-E daggers the back side is flat with no stitching. This is a nice piece made from a limited material,  and well worth the price I'm asking!  Size, 6 7/16 inches. Price, $150.
