Denmark TRIO hunting knife, hand-carved tusk handle, original leather sheath with silver fittings; made circa 1917. Rare antique Danish Hunter in great overall condition, considering the age.
Very interesting antique hunting knife finished in the traditional Nordic style with a presentation-grade hand-carved tusk handle and a premium-quality leather sheath with silver fittings. The overall quality and finish are excellent; this knife has a perfect balance-to-size ratio. The knife is about 7-1/8” / 18 cm overall; carbon steel blade is about 3″ / 7.6 cm. No edge nicks or dings; the edge is very sharp still; the tip is intact. Ricasso is simply stamped TRIO; original sheath is dated 1917 on the front. The handle seems to be carved from a walrus tusk; the floral pattern carvings are beautiful. The top part under the silver collar is cracked but the handle is still solid with no play. The overall quality and finish is top-notch; you will not be disappointed.
Original leather sheath with silver fittings is excellent, considering the age. The silver end point is marked with the Danish .830S silver fitness stamp and I.G inspector’s initials. Leather pistol belt loop seems to be a later addition; all parts are intact. The sheath’s leather is a bit dry; belt loop’s leather is soft and supple. This beautiful Denmark TRIO hunting knife will make a great addition to any collection.
