This is a knife.
We do not know where this object is from. Leatherworkers and sandal makers used metal knives, pins and needles in their work. We think this knife was used for cutting leather. Its owner would probably have wrapped the handle in cloth or leather to make it more comfortable to hold. This is a knife. It is made from a copper alloy. It is between 3,300 and 3,600 years old, dating to the 18th Dynasty (1550-1295 BCE) in the New Kingdom.
