my ancestor the pirate Jens Rasmussen
I come from, Jens Rasmussen and his wife, Jens are also known as the Pirate since he was captured at sea by the English and was prisoner at the Thames in England in a prison ship.
At Odder museum in Jutland, Denmark, there are some of his stuff and amongst it are this little fine knife he made while he was prisoner in 1813-1814.
I decided to make me one that can pass on to my daughter one day and remind her of where we come from.
