    1600's Knife

    Hello diggers,

    Here is a lovely 1600's clasp knife (folding knife) that I found on my recent trip to Germany. It's amazing to me that the bone scales are still present! The soil in that part of Germany is very gentle to coins and relics. It took me 2 days to get all the rust off and I was very pleased to find the blacksmith's touch mark on the blade. It looks like 3 arrowheads to me. What do you think it looks like? The bone handle is very fragile and flakey, but the wax dipping did a good job stabilizing it. I am very pleased with this find and will add it to my collection. Thanks for looking and happy digging, Dave.
