can't really tell the thickness of the blade from the pic but look's more like a sword fragment than a dagger. well dug :thumbsup:

As tempting as it is to clean / polish it, I’d leave it as is.
Lovely find :clapping:

Joe,

Can I ask what book that is as I detect along the River Alyn and have fragment that pretty much matches that in the pic...Also, does it give a PAS ref for it?

Regards

Peter

Another good session, Joe !
Good chunk of blade, definitely one for the FLO.
Plenty of detail left on the watch winder.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
