Was pretty excited when I first saw pic.
Looked like one I had lost up in Manastash that my father had made.
Not it unfortunately...

I have no experience with this kind of stuff, how hard would it be to put a shine back on that blade? Pitting?

Cool looking knife.

That's a nice find, looks to be hand made, I found a wallet years ago while deer hunting the few bills inside crumbled into dust and all the credit cards were expired.

Salvageable I think, the brass is easy, some flax oil on the antler and buff the heck out of the blade.  Serviceable with a story!!!  Neat find

Iíll definitely leave it as is... maybe it would be a cool addition to a pedestal mount?

That  looks like a Sgian Dhu, a Scottish knife that goes in a leather sheath, in your sock. Some of those are Really collectible.

Cool find. Vinegar will remove the rust if you choose to clean it up
