The 11 News I-Team has obtained photos of the knife that Freddie Gray was carrying on the day Baltimore City police arrested him.
The knife was brought up repeatedly during the trials of the officers charged in Gray's death, but until Monday, a picture was never released.
The knife is the documented reason why city police arrested Gray on April 12, 2015. Neither prosecutors nor the defense introduced it as evidence in the officers' trials.
The knife blade is 3 inches long. According to a product description, it is called an assist knife and is sometimes known as a rescue-style assist knife.
