Everyone wants Myerchin scrimshaw pocket knives. They are the most rugged, safest and beautiful of all folding rigging knives out there. Sailors from all over the world clamor for these collectible ivory knives. Each one is guaranteed for life and is considered one of the most well-made scrimshaw folding knives ever created.
You can get either a full-smooth hawk's blade bill or a three quarter serrated blade for only $10 more. (Both are hollow ground for sharpness and this model above has a pocket clip that is removable. Please see insert B. Insert D shows folder with clip removed).
Insert A shows the option "Fossil Walrus Oosik Ivory With Light Ivory Inlay For Scrimshaw (shown with hand-engraved bolsters)." Insert C shows etching of Chesapeake Bay Skipjack.
The Myerchin is simple to open when needed thanks to a large opening in the 3 1/2 inch blade that replaces the nail nick. There is an independent locking mechanism for the blade and marlinspike. It has a German construction equivalent for 440C with anti-corrosion elements. There is stainless bail for tether and a shackle slot in the blade.
These scrimshaw knives come with a genuine leather belt sheath or a long term storage case. Knife shown is personalized with client's boat and name banner. Shown with Medium Light Fossil Walrus Ivory scales.
