Late Bronze Age razor, of Piggot (1946) class 1, Leaf-shaped blade of very thin sub-lenticular section with a very slight mid-rib and chamfer for the cutting edges, a sub-rectangular sectioned shank or handle terminates in a flattened spatula. All surfaces appear to be hammered after casting (work hardening?) and smoothly finished, also cf. Watson, P.J. Catalogue of British and European Metalwork in Birmingham City Museums 1993 BAR British Series: 233, p. 10, no.76, although this example has a hooked tang.

Copper alloy razor. A flat blade of elongated spade shape with an integral sub-rectangular tang. The object is probably cast, though thinned by sharpening. The cutting edges are slightly curved, as are or were - two being slightly damaged - the angles at the outer edges of blade and tang. The object is flat in section, though if the blade is held between finger and thumb there is a tactile impression of slight thinning towards the edge. The form closely resembles that of NLM-EF1AB4, which is identified as a Middle Bronze Age razor of Piggott Class 1. Suggested date: Middle Bronze Age, …

Cast copper alloy 'Hallstatt' razor of Type Unterstall or Poiseul (Matt Knight pers comm) that dates from the Lyn Fawr phase of the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age, c.800-600 BC. The razor is trapezoidal in plan with two suspension loops above a row of four 'hanging triangles' or triangular openwork. The blade edge is only 2 mm in thickness. There is some damage to each side of the blade where it expands to a pointed apex, now missing. There is a small patch of green corrosion where one of these edges is folded, but apart from that, the razor is in an excellent and stable conditi…

Cast copper alloy tanged bifid razor with six vertical grooves on one face and five grooves on the other which are unevenly spaced and extend below a circular perforation to the tang. The circular perforation is 3 mm in diameter and 4 mm in from the V-shaped notch above which is 19 mm long and 9 mm wide at the opening. The base of the blades on either side of the tang are slightly concave leading to heel-shaped corners which then curve outwards around the perforation and inwards again towards the notch. The blades are almost semi-circular in plan and are 60 mm long and together they a…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy tanged razor of probable Late Bronze Age date and unusual form, c. 1150-800 BC. The razor demonstrates a leaf-shaped lenticular sectioned blade, the sides of which have suffered some minor losses due to post-depositional damage. The bade tapers towards its rear edge, where there are two trunnion-like projections marking the beginnings of the tang, after which the remainder of the handle flattens out before tapering further and bifurcating in what is possibly the base of a terminal loop (though this section of the object is broken away in old damage). Pre…

Copper alloy possible razor fragment. Cast triangular section object with two angled surfaces meeting at a straight aris and a cutting edge which curves at one end to meet a straight back, which is indented, probably by fortuitous damage. The flat back may suggest the object to have been cast in an open mould. The form of the section and the lower side as cast appear to represent a skeuomorphic imitation of a flint tool, which might suggest a date in the earlier part of the proposed range. However, the use of metal for a relatively secular purpose would presuppose its wider availabili…

A fragment of a copper alloy possible late Bronze Age razor. It is roughly ovoid in shape and plano-convex in cross-section, with a broad, flat mid-rib and a flattened rim around the outside of both faces. The edges are all damaged and chipped, but it survives in fair condition with a bright green smooth patina. The damage to the edges makes the original form of the object impossible to determine, but it seems likely that it formed part of the blade of a razor. A number of similar more complete examples have been recorded with the PAS from elsewhere in the country, including LEIC-0…

A Bronze Age copper alloy razor in fair condition but now a little bent. Some surface patches are missing on both sides and the blade edges are a little ragged. The razor is oval with a short narrow tang. The tang tapers and gets wider towards the blade. The edge of the tang continues into the body of the razor and the two sides form the inner edges of the blade itself. Peter Reavill comments: This is a Piggott (1946) Class I double-edged razor - some of these are decorated along the mid rib and many are pierced through the tang. The date is later EBA - early MBA and they are of…

Copper alloy probable razor. Cast lentoid blade with one oval end of lentoid section and broken at the other, probably in antiquity. A flattened or rubbed down mid rib appears on both sides, which might hint that this object was made by trimming down a fragment of a larger and heavier blade. The cutting edges are abraded and frayed, probably as post-depositional damage to an already delicate object thinned by recurrent sharpening. Suggested date: possibly Late Bronze Age, 1000-800 BC. Length: 47.6mm, Width: 23.2mm, Thickness: 2.3mm, Weight: 10.21gms.

A copper alloy blade fragment, probably a double-edged razor dating from the Middle to Late Bronze Age, about 2,150 BC - 1,500 BC. The fragment is roughly leaf-shaped with a pointed oval (or flat diamond-shaped) cross-section. The outside edges are very wavy and ragged and there does not appear to be a socket, instead being tanged, though this has broken off. The sides appear to curve inwards towards the tang. There is no decoration on the surface. A smooth mid green patina survives in places but mud adhereing to the faces obscures much of the surface. The break is not as patiated as …

A cast copper-alloy leaf shaped razor of the Middle or Late Bronze Age, about 1500 BC - 800 BC. The razor is incomplete, but what remains indicates the object was leaf-shaped in plan and a very thin pointed oval in section. The tip of the blade is missing, as is most of the tang. The edges of the blade have chipped and corroded away, leaving an irregular, jagged edge to both sides of the blade. Compare NCL-71EF23, DUR-E58572 and BH-EBD380. The metal has a well developed dark green patina with some pitting. The breaks are also patinated. The razor is 75.9mm long, 25.8mm wide and …

Copper alloy probable Razor. Cast U-shaped plate with a cutting edge which runs along one long edge and continuing along the short straight side; the other long side and the U shaped end are flattened. The section is of extremely flattened lentoid form, a point which is only apparent if it is viewed against a straight edge.This object was initially considered as a sword blade fragment, but it lacks any convincing strengthening of the middle part of the blade, and a single sided form would be unusual for a rapier. This object appears to have been robustly cleaned by the finder. Suggest…
