Upturned steel blade with rounded tip. Blade, bolster, and tang are one piece. Bone scales are riveted to the top and bottom of the tang with brass pins to form a tapered block handle with chamfered edges and blunt butt.

Bone is yellowed and crazed, cracked and chipped around edges and pulling away from the tang.
Blade is stamped: “S. ROWLAND”; with a heart, diamond, and circle above.
