Necklace comprised of a vintage dark brass mermaid doubling as a mini novelty pocket knife. Mermaid hangs from a 24" shiny gold plated chain and is in the praying position. Mermaid has double sided detailing and hangs an additional 2 inches from chain when folded and 3 inches when knife component is unfolded.

►Please note, this vintage knife charm is fragile and can only be considered a vintage novelty, not a working pocket knife.

THE LEGEND:
This mermaid isn't what she appears to be at fist look, much like the legends claim. Legends say the siren was portrayed as a seductresses, who lived on an island called Sirenum scopuli. Sailors who sailed near were compelled by the Sirens' enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast.

Much like sirens, mermaids would sometimes sing to people and gods and enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to walk off the deck or run their ships aground. Other stories have them squeezing the life out of drowning men while attempting to rescue them. They are also said to take humans down to their underwater kingdoms. In Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid it is said that they forget that humans cannot breathe underwater, while others say they drown men out of spite.

The sirens of Greek mythology are sometimes portrayed in later folklore as mermaid-like; in fact, some languages use the same word for both bird and fish creatures, such as the Maltese word 'sirena'.
