This piece blows me away. The blade came in without scales but a broken 3 piece original accompanied it.
The client also thought black Horn unless I had other ideas.
Well yes I did!
I had this piece of streaked horn I though would be perfect. Not all black, streaks of blonde with some warm browns and areas of silvery gold translucence. The camera in no way does it justice. You HAVE to see it in person to truly appreciate it.

The blade itself was in very nice condition which is so unlike the stuff I usually get. But just look at the etch on the blade, the stampings on the shaft both face and reverse. Man,, it now looks like it came off the line yesterday darn near.I'm just dumbstruck with this one. I wish it were a keeper.

That is a thing of beauty. Would be tempted to put that one in a glass display and not use it. But, it was made to be used.
