Scope and content

The handle of the knife is made out of wood which appears to have been hand carved into its cylindrical shape. There is a notch midway up the handle as well as a notch near the top of the handle cut around the wood. A slot from the top of the handle to the midway point is cut into the wood and this is where the blade of the object has been inserted. The blade of the object is made of one solid piece of metal which also seems to be hand hammered and rise straight out of the handle before rounding at a ninety degree angle. The tip of the blade is pointed but also rounded and the edges were sharpened at some point but are now dull. Holding the blade in place is a piece of wire wrapped inside the first notch on the handle. The wooden handle is unfinished wood which is quite dirty and the blade is tarnished with a bit of dirt residue.
