Knife (part a) with an L-shaped wooden handle, incised at top. Between handle and blade is a metal band which is mostly gold coloured, but silver underneath. The blade is shaped: it begins narrow at the handle end, then extends on one side convexly, narrowing again at the tip to a point. The upper edge of the blade runs to a gentle peak at the centre and then sloping down again to the tip. The scabbard (part b) is made of two pieces pegged and lashed together. On both sides is an incised line, painted black, that starts 2.5 cm from the top and runs the length of the scabbard, terminating in a black triangle. There are 4 dark brown braided bands encircling the scabbard, approx. 5.5 cm apart. (A fifth is missing.)
