This beautiful stiletto is carved of real ivory (not bone) with a pineapple style finial and a variety of designs through the center. It reverses to screw into the handle so that the point is protected. It has a glowing original patina and nice ivory grain. The condition of the ivory is excellent with no chips, cracks or other damage.
The point is nice and sharp and it screws together perfectly in both directions. It measures 3 5/8" long closed and 4 1/2" open.
