"There is more here than meets the eye." Lady Murasaki

This is a hard-to-find boy's or ladies' small Damascus steel sheath knife. It comes as either a drop point or upswept blade. (Upswept blade shown in picture). Overall length is 6 1/4 inches. With striking brass bolsters.

A terrific Damascus blade made by Bear MGC Cutlery, one of America's best blademakers (now Bear and Son Cutlery) - and at a very reasonable price. Damascus steel (alternating layers of hard and soft steel) is known the world over as the finest material available for knife blades. Beautiful and distinctively-Damascus patterns on the upswept blade are produced by acid etching after forging. (See inset) Damascus blades got their name because the patterns on the steel resembled the patterns in the damask cloth also being made in Damascus. (When you look at a Damascus blade under a microscope, you see tiny saw-tooth carbides, which allow the blade to cut - even when it feels dull to the touch!)

A superb knife that will be a magnificent gift for any camper, collector or hunter. And it comes with a genuine leather belt sheath. Shown with Medium Light Fossil Walrus Ivory With Some Crystalline scales. (Not available with pins).
Price includes your choice of scrimshaw design below, as well as scrimshawed initials, name, or date (up to 14 letters).

As an option, we will scrimshaw an etching of a ship of your choice, or a favorite animalon one side - Just email or snailmail us a picture.

Scrimshaw designs or initials not available on Dark Brown Fossil Mammoth Ivory.


Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
