Linder Bavarian Folklore Mountain Goat Horn Knife w/Fork (4.5" Polished)
DescriptionLinder has an entire line of Bavarian Folklore Knives. These are vintage knives, and many include the original paperwork and traditional Linder emblem tag. A great find for any collector!
This particular style of Bavarian Folklore knives has a handle of real Mountain Goat Horn that tapers elegantly towards the blade, with a smooth, concave ricasso to keep your hand from sliding. It's very comfortable, actually. The silver-nickel bolsters are embossed with an oak leaf design and the inscription "WEIDMANNSCHEIL" (good hunting). Silver-nickel is very soft in color, pleasing to the eye, and the nickel helps reduce the tarnishing which plagues true silver. The blade is stainless steel with a drop point, filework, and a flat-ground, plain edge; the hunting scene etched on one side of the blade lends additional elegance to this Bavarian knife.
Along with their variety of knife handles, Linder also carries a variety of sheaths; most are typically only available at additional cost, but we're including these variants at no additional charge (that's how much we love you!). This leather sheath has a metal throat and chape (top and tip of the sheath) with an oak leaf pattern. The most unique feature here is the dainty fork attachment hidden in the sheath. Just screw the fork into the chape and presto! a picnic set fit for a king!
Please Note: Because the handles are of natural horn, actual appearance may vary.
