15th Century Knights Personal Eating Knife
Secure Payments By
These personal eating knives were carried everywhere with the knight, as medieval knights provided their own cutlery as it was thought of as outrageous at mealtimes to show up without cutlery (not the manners or behaviour of a Knight). Personal small dagger like knives were used to slice, tear and pierce foods from soft cheese to tough meat dishes. The food was picked up on the pointed tip. A rare survivor.
