The Hindsgavl Dagger. In the Neolithic period the flintworkers achieved very high technical standards. The magnificent dagger from Hindsgavl with its blade less than 1 cm thick is the finest example of the flintworkers’ outstanding skills at the end of the Stone Age. It was found around 1876 on tihe island Fænø in the Little Belt. The dagger type is called a ‘fishtail dagger’ because of the fishtail-formed hilt.
It’s interesting to use a dagger o ceremonial knife made of flint on thundestone to “pin down the energies, intention…” like the ancient thunder or lighting stones are used in Traditional Witchcraft (like a nail).
