This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a folding knife! Folding knives came in a variety of shapes and sizes, to be used for specific purposes or as multi-use tools. The blades vary in length from 10-12 inches, down to 2-3 inches. The handle of this knife is all iron, but handles of folding knives could be made of metal, bone, wood, horn, or ivory. Judging by the amount of folding knives at archaeological sites like Fort Ticonderoga, they were extremely common and many soldiers carried them! An important archival example of this comes from the 1757 King’s Storehouses Inventory taken by French soldiers at Fort Ticonderoga, recording ten unusable penknives and 1300 bizalions and Siamois knives, which are three different kinds of French folding knives. #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #museum #museumcollections #archeology #archaeology #artifact #history #food #soldier
