Knife

Knife

A dagger-like knife with an iron blade and bone shaft. The blade is attached with a copper rivet. The nearby 1854 wreck of Robert McClure’s ship ‘Investigator’ would have been a good source of sheet copper and other metal for people frequenting Banks Island. The item was collected by geologist Don Yont in 1961 on Mercy Bay, Banks Island.
