George H Cowen carving knife need input please

Recommended Posts

The only example of this blade shape o can find is one with a silver handle from the 1880’s. It seems obvious to me this handle has been modified either original handle broke or was robbed for the silver probably broke. The blade doesn’t have monetary value but does have history and as a knife maker I’d like to see it have a correct handle so other than silver does anyone know what it might have been stag antler wood.

Those usually had stag handles.  Or silver, but you knew that.  They were just held on with Cutler's resin, so any exposure to heat and the handle comes off.
