The best knife is the one you have on you when you need it! This gorgeous knife is both aesthetically beautiful to carry around and also sharp and highly utilitarian! A great gift for guys or gals, this knife is perfect for everyday use or for rugged outdoor adventures! 

This beautiful pocketknife is made from scrimshaw. Scrimshaw was originally practiced by american whalers who spent long hours aboard ships in the 1800’s. The designs were carved into the bones of marine mammals, although this knife and present-day scrimshaw is carved into more responsibly and ethically sourced materials such as ox or cow bone. 

This particular knife has original ship and compass rose artwork from Linda Layden, a US based scrimshander. 

Measuring just over 2.75 inches closed and 5 inches open- this is a great medium sized knife. The knife is a Rough Rider and is made from 440 stainless steel. Black doesn’t not have locking feature.
