King Tut's dagger was a meteorite

Recommended Posts

Meteoric Iron has been recognized as special probably well before the use of Iron tools and weapons .  It would seem the Egyptians were a bit late in the use of Iron as tools.  Even after Iron became the metal of choice, Meteoric Iron was known to be special.  The unknown fact of the day was it contained high levels of Nickel and Cobalt.  Some may have had enough Nickel content to be close to Stainless Steel.
