IXL GEORGE WOSTENHOLM Huge IXL Sportsman's knife, referred to by the Brits as a Fish knife, but this knife is 7 3/8'' closed, 12 1/2'' open. Front lock with the exhibition style through the tang nailmark. Magnificent pebbled stag handles that are not found on any type of Sambar stag today. Hook disgorer, and on the back side another knife blade, triangular punch and long corkscrew. The tops of both blades are finely fileworked, as are the top of the tangs on the disgorer and hook. The inside liners are scallop worked. The scissors under the handle are 3 1/4'', and the tweezers are 2 1/2''. Grooved bolsters and finely filed on the outer edge. There are some specks toward the front of locking bar and at the base of the master blade, but otherwise this is exhibition quality and condition. I would still say it is mint for a knife of this age.
