This stone dagger has a handle that is divided into two parts, separated from each other by a thinner band. The upper tier is smaller in length than the lower tier, which flares outward as it approaches the end. The tip of blade is broken off. In profile, the blade thickens in the center.<br />
<br />
Carved from stone, this dagger with a two-tier handle is missing only its tip. The cross section of the blade is rhomboid, while that of the handle is shaped like a convex lens. The dagger is of the later two-tier-handled type (<em>idanbyeongsik</em>), meaning that it probably dates from the end of the early Bronze Age or the beginning of the middle Bronze Age. Max Loehr (1903- 1988) was a German art historian specializing in East Asian art who taught at the University of Michigan from 1951 to 1960 as a professor.<br />
