Fascine Knife Blade (billhook) And Pick Ax Head
Date:
1770s

Content Description: 

Fascine knives were used to cut bundles of sticks or brush used to reinforce defenses made of piled earth. They were also sometimes called "billhooks." The metal spike would have been inserted into a wooden handle.

A pick ax or pick axe is a hand tool with a hard head with one or two sharp points that is attached perpendicular to a handle, which is missing in this archaeological find.

Both items are from the collection of Fort Ticonderoga.
