A very interesting and probable C.1800's Inuit Indian Leaf-bladed Knife Dagger.  This is quite a difficult one to identify and trying to research comparable examples has so far proved elusive and I am basing my assumption on similar antique Inuit knives that feature these distinctive leaf-shaped blades.  Some early Inuit snow knives used to carved ice blocks also have this type of blade profile.  If anyone has an alternative theory on this knife I would be very interested to hear from them.

Double-edged blade

The dagger comprises a marine ivory and brass mounted hilt wrapped in leather bands.  The blade is of prominent leaf shape and double-edged.  Condition is good overall for its age with some commensurate wear to the blade.  Blade length is 7 inches (10 inches overall).
