    Pike?

    Found this knife but don't know what kind.
    It does have a banner across the blade with numbers/letters. It's about a 6" blade 10" lg
    Found in a revolutionary/ colonial era area.
    The bolt was near and seems to fit.

    I can't help much other then to say I've found one just like it or at least very close.Mine is the same 6" blade 10" overall length.Also came from a early site that had colonial finds I dug with it.
    Take Care,
    Pete,

    Yours looks like a tent peg / stake to me timekiller. Can see the end bent over where they hit it with the hammer/mallet then looped the tiedown over it. My opinion anyhow.

    If I had to take a guess I'd say some kind of old shears.Like these..........................

    Definitely not a pike as you can see what it would have looked like in the site below.........................
    Arms and Armor in Colonial America, 1526-1783 - Harold Leslie Peterson - Google Books

    I'd bet money on both of them being half a shear.They did date back to those times.
