Yes, many collectors including myself have a tendency to underestimate the capabilities of ancient or native cultures.
But compared to the King Tut dagger Inuit people iron works are cold hammered, realtively simple and not much bigger than a thumb nail.
King Tuts dagger is an evidence for sophisticated working on steel 1000 years before the use of steel was wide spreaded.
As with the pyramids the Egyptians startet a new technology at an extraordinary high level. I think this a very strange fact.
