Scope and content

The handle of the object is made of two pieces of dark brown wood that have a glossy finish. The handle is rectangular with a rounded bottom. Pressed in between the center of the handle is metal from the blade which gives the blade support and strength. This metal is held in place by two brass rivets punched through the top and bottom of the handle. Coming out of the top of the handle is the blade of the knife which is long and thin. The top edge of the blade is flat while the bottom curves inward slightly before rounding and coming to a very pointed tip. Both sides of the blade have some rust and wear on them. Inscribed into one side of the blade is an illegible word and then "U.S.A".
