Shepherds Purse: Attached Objects - Knife

Return to main page

Knives are the most common type of attached object, not entirely surprisingly. Among other social groups, knives may be worn in a variety of manners, but when multiple objects appear for a shepherd, the knife is typically hung in the same manner as the other objects. These tend to be relatively small knives -- the typical medieval utility knife, not anything fancy.
