It’s hard to imagine a simpler and more utilitarian tool than a bone folder, but shape of the folder below is unmistakably Islamic or Turkish looking. I’ve never seen a tip like this on a European or American bone. It amazes me that such a simple shape can embody the complexities of national identity. It closely resembles a minaret or arch. This one was purchased from a cobblers supply store in Istanbul, is made from a fairly dense (cow?) bone, rapidly fabricated with many deep scratches.
