POTO, CURRENCY KNIFE 18, 23.5", $200

These double-sided forged iron knives exist in a variety of shapes. They were originally used for ceremonial purposes and probably date from the 20th century.

Many of them originally had a fur ball on the handle; in most cases the fur is partially or completely lost.

Unlike many galleries which grind down and polish the blades, we have left these with the rusty patina intact.
