Abstract: The article describes the bronze dagger of antenna-type recently found in Russian Far East (Primorye). Its size and weight and decoration are given in detail, the traces of its existence are shown. The authors investigated other finds of bronze daggers in the Russian Far East and in the territory of neighbouring states, on the basis of which the object was dated to the turn of the era. The article highlighted the combination of elements of the Scytho-Siberian style and ornamental motifs comming from the Korean Peninsula and having counterparts in SEA. An assumption is made about the long-term existence of the local arms tradition as well.

Keywords: Korean bronze dagger type, antenna-type dagger, a dagger with opposing griffins, the Scytho-Siberian animal style.
