It would probably have originally held some kind of decoration on the blade which has sadly been lost through time. It would have been a personal and highly prized item to whomever owned it and is not the kind of item that is easily lost. Perhaps it was buried with its owner, who along with the rest of his possessions has now turned to dust. With a population of less than 500,000 people across the whole of Britain, this is a rare survivor.
I would be surprised if there are very many outside of museums. Please see photos for condition.
