This shapely knife is not that old (probably 100+ years), but it is well made, shapely, and useful. Both the handle and blade are fashioned from walrus ivory (the handle shows the distinctive secondary dentin well). The knife’s total length is 7 ¾ inches, with that of the blade alone being 4 ¾ inches. The blade’s tang is set into the handle and secured by an ivory pin. It is solid. The blade is surprisingly sharp, and could have been used to slice off mouthfuls of seal or walrus blubber in the Eskimo way.
