Late 19th century English butcher’s knife sharpening steel: A COLLECTION of 6 superb, quality-made examples of Victorian-era knife sharpeners of cast steel and brass. Individual handles are made from various materials -from either bone (NOT IVORY), brass, horn, or rosewood- and all but one is designed to hang from a brass hanging loop. The loops are rotating and pivoting making it easier to hang them. All have been cleaned and polished to highlight both the craftsmanship and inherent beauty of the materials used in the manufacture of these tools. Condition is excellent.

PLEASE NOTE: Bone handle IS bone and NOT ivory. A cross-section of animal bone was used for the handle. The darker area is the inner section of bone and the lighter area the outer portion. Also the grain pattern visible from the side of the handle is typical of bone, as shown in last image.

Sizes: From 16” to 21” in length when suspended from the hanging loops.
