This dagger handle's upper part depicts two falcons heads in opposition.  Carved in the handle's center is a rudimentary human face consisting of two eyes, a nose, and a mouth.  This image represents a generic Egyptian enemy.  Its placement on the hilt allowed the owner, when drawing the blade, to crush symbolically Egypt's enemies.
