Description

Victorian Era Galles Christiania, Finnish Form, Puukko Hunting / Fishing Knife With Scrimshaw Etched Polished Bone Hilt German Silver Mounts & Tooled Open Top Leather Scabbard With German Silver Mounts. Sn 15908:1 - 15908:1

A Puukko (Finnish pronunciation: [puH0;kH0;o]) is a small traditional Finnish general purpose belt knife ideal for hunting & fishing with a single curved cutting edge, solid hidden tang and, usually, a flat back. This Victorian era Puuko form knife and scabbard are in excellent condition. It is 7 ¾” overall with a sharp 3 ½” steel drop point blade. The blade has just light staining consistent with age. The top and bottom edges of the ricasso are notched. The knife has a solid barrel shaped polished bone handle with superb scrimshaw foliate etching all around. The hilt has a German silver ferrule & pommel cap with nut securing the full tang. The pommel cap has a period stylised engraved monogram which appears to be ‘H.F’ most likely the initials of the original owner of the knife. The knife comes with its original open top, brown leather scabbard which has German silver frame and single steel hanging ring. The ball end chape of the frame has engraved foliate decoration. The leather has tooled foliate panel decoration on the front aspect. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15908:1
