    The mountain man's dinnerware was simple, usually consisting of a kettle for cooking. Others may be so lucky as to have a plate, a tin cup, possibly a spoon, and the ever present butcher knife. This was the extent of the individual trappers' dinner-ware. The practice of eating off a butcher knife was common and continued on the frontier until nearly the turn of the century.
