Scope and content

The bottom of the handle of the object is flat and round getting much thinner midway up before widening again at the knife's blade. The blade of the knife is flat on both sides with a slight increase in it width as it reaches the tip. On one edge of the blade it curves inward slightly before rounding at the tip. The other side of the blade has a dip in the metal followed by a hump before curving downward to the tip. Both sides of the knife are fairly smooth and not sharp. On the front of the handle there is a stamp in the metal of the maker's mark which is a circle with a star in the middle and says "Richmond". On the back there is also a stamp that says "Rodgers EP". The metal is supposed be silver in color but has been tarnished to a dark grey/black in color.
