Japanese vintage knife, carved bone handle/sheath
Sold by Items of Value, Inc
This appears to be early 20th century Japanese bone carving of a very fine quality. Note not only the heads and armored bodies of the soldiers, the fine quality of the horse's head, but also the dragon head on the handle. The steel blade is clean and free of chips on edges. Knife is 15"l. Sheath is 12-1/4"l.
We also have two more Japanese knives of the same vintage but lesser quality carving.
