HUGE 14 3/4″ WW2 JAPANESE JUMBO BAREHEAD SAILORS ROPE KNIFE

I have had a lot of these in my time but they are normally 4 3/4 inches closed. You can imagine what I thought when I walked into a local pawn shop and saw this 8 1/2 inch giant laying on top of a bunch of old junk knives. It is marked with a “Y” in a circle stainless on the tang. The back edge has been engraved Yoko Suka Japan 1954 – 1955. The blade appears unused and has what appears to be a hamon or temper line on the blade edge. I think it is a soldier bring back knife. I have pictured it beside a Schrade 15OT so you can see the size.

ANTIQUE COIR BALANCING FOLDING PENNY CLASP KNIFE FOR FISHING NET REPAIR OR INDIAN RUG WEAVING

This is a unique old knife I recently purchased. There are markings on the blade but I cannot make them out. According to Levine’s, it is a balance knife with two blades designed to hold each other in the open position in turn. I have seen similar knives used by fisherman for net repair. From what I have found this is an Indian or Sri Lanka rug weavers knife. I have owned a couple of these but not one marked or this knice. Pun intended.

ODD VINTAGE RUSSIAN FIGURAL TRIFOLD FISH SHAPED KNIFE BARRY WOODS STYLE

This is a very unusual figural fish shaped knife that I recently found. may be fashioned after a sturgeon. The knife folds in half to expose the blade and back together to lock the handles in place. It is the same folding design as the famous Barry Woods custom  design. The only markings are Russian, nepmb i think, with an odd trade mark that I cannot see all of.  I don’t have a lot of info on this knife but it is very unique. 3 3/8 inches long closed and 6 inches overall.
