Etruscan bronze dagger

This dagger is copied from an original that dates from the 9th -7th century BC. Bronze with a full profile tang with bone scales (the original most likely had wood scales, but the bone looks great). Comes with a leather sheath with bronze fittings and suspension ring. I've seen websites refer to this as a Peloponnesian dagger; but the original shows otherwise - it's classical Etruscan, or slightly older Villanovan-Etruscan.

(here's the original):

length: 10 7/8"
blade: 6 3/4"
blade width: 1 1/4" widest
bone scales: 3 7/8"
weight (dagger): 5.6 oz
weight (dagger and sheath): 8.0 oz

Price: $140
