The Broch of Gurness Dagger is a bone handled knife found at the Broch of Gurness in Orkney, and was in use sometime between 400 and 800 AD. The blade was very corroded when found, but the handle has a clear ogham (pronounced oh-am, the original written Irish alphabet) inscription. Writing in such an era was seen as a magic spell, and these petite, etched, dangling daggers certainly capture that enchanted element. These are reversible with the choice of two patterns on each dagger, so you can wear them matching or in contrast to eachother. The Australian made sterling silver sleepers are sturdy and remain firmly clasped shut once closed, thus make for a great no-fuss, daily wear.
