C.1800 Scottish Highland Narwhal Skean Dhu Dagger
This is a very unusual C.1800 Scottish Highland Narwhal Skean Dhu of distinctive form. It comprises a long grip made from narwhal tusk and has a leaf-shaped blade with typical Scottish Highland skean dhu notches. This knife appears to have had a particular role due to the unusual shape of the blade - could be naval in origin - but it has mystified me.
Condition of the Skean Dhu
In excellent shape throughout.
Specifications of the Skean Dhu
Blade length is 3 inches (7.5 inches overall).
