Set of Four Walrus Handled Fish Knives C.1920-30
$360.00

Each of these four knives measures approximately 8 1/4 inches by 1 inch by 1/2 inch. They all have walrus tusk handles, carved in the shape of stylized fish.

They were made in Alaska or possibly Canada circa 1920-30.

They are in excellent condition, except for one old small fracture at the mounting point where the ivory was pinned to the steel blade. It is is visual only and does not affect the knife's strength or utility.

Each of the blades is stamped KROME-PLATE & RESISTS STAINS.

Included will be an old, damaged box which may be from the period.
