Scope and content

The handle of the object is made of a hand carved cylindrical piece of wood that is dark brown and has a glossy finish. The handle is rectangular with a rounded bottom. Pressed over a knob at the top of the handle is a folded piece of metal which holds the blade in place for support. Coming out of the top of the handle is the blade of the knife which is rectangular in shape. All the edges of the blade are supposed to be straight but have a slight wave to them as the blade is presumably hand crafted. The top of the blade is made of much thicker metal then the sharp edge. There are a few rust spots on the blade and a bit of tarnish on both sides. Stamped into the metal on one side of the object are some Chinese lettering.
