A simple pocket knife without a back spring. There is a decoratively lathed wooden handle in the rear half. In the front part of the handle there is a round iron sleeve through which the blade rivet passes and which also serves as a blade support when opened. The blade has a long reduced tip and is made of thin steel plate. The sleeve and blade are covered with a thick continuous corrosion layer.
The map shows the location of all the sites where the genizah items in the collections of the Jewish Museum in Prague were discovered (finds from other sites, such as Ivančice and Pacov, are not in the museum’s collections). Representative genizah items from each location are gradually being added to the museum’s website. Complete sets of genizah items can be found in the museum’s catalogue at collections.jewishmuseum.cz.
