Revolutionary War Knife- Mackinaw City, MI

Mackinaw Revolutionary Knife

Excerpt- Dr. Lynn Evans, curator of archaeology, said the knife’s origins date back to 1781 or older. “It’s not a folding knife like most we find,” she said. “It could have fit into a sheath and is shaped like a butcher knife. The blade is entirely intact but the handle is dismantled.”
