@kutgar,
It looks like a narrow digging tool or spade without the handle, an exaggerated version of what is called a sharpshooter.

@coluber2001,
More like a central Africa spear head.

The design seems quite recent, in archaeological terms..

@kutgar,
It looks like a gardening implement to me. Poke a hole in the ground, plant a seed, repeat...

I think it might be a bayonet, could date from the Napoleonic era, or WW2, or even the Suez crisis.

I think you mean, comes from the middle east, no value.

@Krumple,
Isn't that where The Garden of Eden was located? Somewhere on that bus line?

The garden of Eden wasn't really that great, you couldnt eat bacon.

Pigs came on the scene afterward. They ran low on apples.

Well God wasn't going to stock up and allow those freeloaders Adam and Eve to just enjoy themselves. He was devising a plan to get them kicked out.

God: "You broke the roommate agreement, thall shalt not eat from this tree I conveniently placed here so that you could."

Get out!

The Mormons think the Garden of Eden wasn't too far from St. Joseph, Missouri.Kind of a minority opinion.

The blade seems to be 28 cm, about 11 inches, a bit too long to be a knife blade. And it's got a rolled socket handle, which would make it more apt to be the blade from a spear. No apparent corrosion, which would argue against it being iron, and it's got a thick center and seems to be sort of brownish, so it might be bronze, which would make it considerbaly older. On the other hand, bronze usually patinates to sort of a greenish or greenish-gray color, but we don't know whether or not someone tried to clean it up. You;d have to check with an expert to tell. BUT DON'T BUY THINGS LIKE THIS ON THE MARKET, BECAUSE A LOT OF THEM WERE LOOTED FROM THEIR ORIGINAL CONTEXT ILLEGALLY, WHICH MEANS THE GOVERNMENT OF ITS ORIGINAL SOURCE WILL BE REALLY REALLY PISSED AT YOU AND COULD CONCIEVABLY SUE YOU IF THEY CAN CLAIM IT, AND IT ALSO MEANS THAT YOU'VE AIDED AND ABETTED THEFT FROM CULTURAL SITES AND HAVE DESTROYED MOST OF THE SCIENTIFIC WORTH OF IT, SINCE NOW THERE'S NOTHING TO BE LEARNED ABOUT ITS ORIGINAL CULTURAL USE.
