Butcher knives were designed primarily for butchering animal carcasses. Though deteriorating rapidly, this butcher knife is essentially complete. It was recovered from Camp Fletcher in Ellis County that was abandoned after a devastating flood. The Army then moved to the present location of Fort Hays. This knife was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2003.

Date: 1865-1867
