Remarks:
Knife is small, narrow and very pointed at end - seems ideal for piercing. Wood handle is broken away on the ends of both sides. Sheath is plain rawhide, rolled onto itself, sinew sewn on the seam in large stitches. Small piece of tanned hide hangs from bottom point. The shape echoes the knife - tapering down to a fine point. One (1) hole towards top - probably for hanging from belt, etc.
