Lambayeque Copper Knife

Incan Copper Knife

Artifact # 96.2.104 Part of the Braches Collection.
This is a really cool copper knife, isn't it? As with the chili knife we know it is copper from the distinctive green colour. Also like the chili knife, we are not entirely sure what it was used for. Some archaeologists study the wear patterns on tools and are able to tell us how they were used. We are certainly going to need an extensive usewear analysis on this one. Maybe you could study usewear and do it for us!!!!!
