Scope and content

A,B,C: The main body of the knife including the blade is made of one continuous piece of metal which has been bent in the middle to give the knife its shape. The handle of the knife is flat and rectangular and wrapped in a thick wicker type cording which is yellow/beige in color. The cording covers all but the very end of the handle where there is metal and wood exposed. On the back of the handle underneath the wicker covering it is presumed there is a piece of wood running along the metal to give the handle shape and make it easier to grip. The knife curves downward before flattening and creating a tip at the end. The metal tip of the gardening knife is pointed and the edges are sharp although not as sharp as a cutting knife. The metal blade of the object is quite worn and there is some first build up on the blade. There is only slight variations in each of the knives such as the wear on the blade and the uncoiling of the wicker handle coverings.
