Item SCR15 -  Small Engraving or Carving Knife

This very small knife, probably made and used for engraving (scrimshanding) or carving has a well worked steel blade just 1 inches long, fitted into a bone handle, itself is only 5/8 diameter, and 1 1/2" long.  The handle appears to be part of a carpel or tarsal bone from a fairly large animal (Bear? Seal? Walrus?).  The butt end of the handle has been drilled, and filled with another insert of bone.  Probably Eskimo in origin, this would be a great little knife for fine carving or engraving.  Good+
