Handmade Swordfish Bill Fillet Knife w/ Scrimshaw
This one of a kind fillet knife was handmade out of an actual swordfish bill by Bill Gordon from Rhode Island. The blade is stainless steel. The Scrimshaw design on the handle and scabbard was hand engraved by our resident artist and store owner Brian Kiracofe.
The practice of scrimshaw began on whaling ships when the crew members were out at sea for unbearably long periods of time. They would engrave onto the whale's teeth to pass the time. Our store owner and resident artist, Brian Kiracofe, uses his scrimshaw skills to create the beautiful designs on each authentic scrimshaw piece.
Length with scabbard: 12.5"
Length of blade: 11 3/4"
