I hand etched this scrimshaw knife in classic black and white with a nautical scene featuring a full sailed ship and a breaching humpback whale in the foreground. This is called a Navaja Folder fitted with smooth bone handles. The blade is Damascus steel with the characteristic folds of steel weaving throughout the blade. The knife measures 4 1/4" closed and has brass bolsters and a worked backspring. A brown leather sheath is included in the price.

There is a clear bone back which can be customized with a name, initials or sentiment of your choice. Select from options in the drop down menu and tell me what to etch in notes to seller at checkout.

The scrimshaw is inked with black india ink and sealed with 2 coats of archival wax to protect the intricate design and to enhance the beauty of the bone. It is water resistant, but not waterproof.

You must be over 18 to purchase this. Please state in notes to seller at purchase time.
