These knife handle fragments were recovered from an archeological site in Morris County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. They were once part of cartouche knife with perforated handle decoration. These may represent a popular trade item, the French clasp knife. The site had multiple occupations from the Archaic period to the late 1800s and was one of three large Kansa sites along the Neosho River occupied during the mid-19th century.
