Appear to be 1/2 of garden clippers or shears...or a pair of scizzors...and not a knife at all.

Possibility it could date back quite a ways...

Many colleges/universities will be more than happy to take a look at it for you.

Ideally, it'd be a 18th century trade knife, or something of the sort.

Bayonets usually have no handle. So that rules it out.


well your wrong about that, bayonets do have handles, and some are short, and can be used as fighting knifes.
here is a whole page with handles. and just because something is just about rusted away doesn't make it very old.
bayonets
true early bayonets didn't and they fit inside or around the barrel of muskets. iirc it was after the civil war that bayonets became a multi use tool and fighting knife.
i don't recall when they went from fitting around the barrel of muskets to fitting with locking lugs, but it was i think it was around the same time as using them as a fighting knife.

Good idea. I might contact a college or university and see if they do that for free.

Why would anyone bury a butcher knife in the park in NJ?


may not have been a park when it was lost/left there. history of the area would tell how long it's been a park. and you know in some parks people use to like to take the family on picnics, and may have needed to cut something.

You're right. I should do a little research about the park. Let me see what I can add.

being that it's new jersy, wouldn't surprise me if you find there's a lot of history for the land the park is on.

Yep. I'm pretty sure about that. Driving my car around I find good spots for metal detecting all the time. I wish I have more time to do this.

But one spot at time, I will share with you guys my experiences.

I'm no expert but to me it looks like it may have been utilized in farming.

It's got a curve to it kinda like a sickle.

Yeah, it could be missing a part of the blade.
