Maple or cherry wood knife handle 3D Model
From the recovery of the Mary Rose, a tudor warship that sank in 1545 during the battle of the solent.
This beautifully carved, wooden item is one of a matching pair that would have gone either side ofa knife. You can see where the metal pins would have gone through, but they have rusted away with the blade itself over the centuries, leaving just the wood behind. About 20 of these were found on the wreck.
This and many more of the carpenters artefects (including his skull) were modelled using photogrammetry and can be found at: www.VirtualTudors.org
