Description

This custom made ‘skinner’ has been handmade by ‘Simon Stanley’ of Portsmouth. The knife has been recovered from a shipwreck in the Solent between The Isle of Wight and Great Britain in the 1700’s. The knife and leather sheath were recovered from the wreck having been preserved perfectly. The knife is 25 ½ cm in total. The blade length is 14 cm long and 4.25 cm at its widest. There is a little rust to the inside of the tang. The beautiful scales are sculptured from ‘Warthog tusks’ and have a lanyard hole. The head of the scales look to have been restored in the past, but do not detract from their beauty. Seven steel pins hold the grip to the knife. The blade has a hand engraved pattern which continues on the spine, with the makers mark imprinted on the ricasso. The thick leather sheath has intricate ‘scallop’ like markings throughout, with a belt loop to the rear. A truly remarkable piece of history which is well worth further investigation. The price includes U.K. delivery. Sn: 18737
