The weapon is composed of two cast bronze elements: the blade, very elongated and regular in shape, is extremely thin; it is reinforced by a central tripartite rib and the hilt has an elaborate structure and is richly decorated, perhaps with a unique pattern; it comprises three parts, including a rectangular component (in which the blade fits).
The latter one is surmounted by an elliptical feature and a special type of pommel, embellished by two large discs, each with a central point in relief. The crossguard, positioned in a non-ergonomic position, stays in the center of the hilt and it has a small horizontal segment. The inlaid silver decoration is the most distinctive feature of this weapon.
