Here's an excellent old steel blade (9.25 inches itself; 14+ inches overall with handle) on an antler handle, secured with an ornate fitting (detail photo). The piece tastefully combines an elegant design with a folksy look -- very appealing. Blade is mounted through the handle with a steel shank and anchored at the butt by a heavy rivet. The flex steel blade is in very good condition and will hold a keen edge (for safety reasons we have not put a new edge on). The "scimitar" shaped blade adds a further touch of character. This is a very nice piece; very sound condition, well cared for. We find no maker's marks or signatures. Dimensions: Overall 14 plus inches long; blade only is 9 1/4 inches.
More photos gladly and questions always welcome.
