    Grandmothers knife from Mississippi.

    While visiting in Mississippi I decided to take a look around my Grandmothers old house site. The house has been torn down, and trash is every where. Brush, and briars have grown up thick at the place. Just walking around the site I found this knife. When I looked at the end of the handle there was an M carved into it. I supposed it stood for my grandmothers last name. It meant a lot to me to find one of her knives. Hope you enjoy.

    Wow, that is a fantastic find. You could get that back to pretty good shape with electrolysis. Congrats on the find.

    Fantastic find O.R. - definitely something to cherish...

    Great find! I think my Grandma's knife was found in Granddad's back. Apparently, he snored.
