'You rarely get such a massive blade with this beautiful decoration,' says our Antiquities specialist Claudio Corsi.

A dirk is a dagger. The word came into use in Scotland in the 17th century, probably from the Dutch, Swedish and Danish dolk, and German dolch. This dirk, offered in the Antiquities sale in London on 5 July, is from the Middle Bronze Age in Europe, between 1500 and 1350 BC.
