Description

M. W. Seguine Skinning Knife owned by Warren Page.
Stainless steel 5 ¼-inch blade with a two-inch saw back section. Blade marked: M.W. SEGUINE /JUNEAU, ALASKA . Ivory grip engraved with engraved Arctic scene of two polar bears. Brass pommel and guard. Built-up leather sheath stamped with maker's name. 2 ¾ inch sharpening stone in pouch on sheath. (Note: There is no marking on the knife or sheath indicating Warren Page's ownership.)
Note: In the April 1971 issue of Field & Stream, Warren Page writes: Merle Seguine of Juneau, vocational teacher and tool-maker when he isn't grinding knives, understandably not only names his types after Alaskan game animals and the glaciers of his beloved state, but contours and weighs them for Alaskan tasks, and often fits handles of Pacific walrus ivory, sometimes touched up with Eskimo scrimshaw art or bits of Alaskan gold. I own and use one such-it not only slips the hide off a brown bear without sharpening but is a possession of pride. The knife is pictured on page 60 of the article Beautiful Blades. It is the second from the right.
Condition: Excellent, showing limited use. Brass guard and brass sheath fasteners show patches of verdigris. Brass pommel is tarnished. Ivory grip shows longitudinal shrinkage cracks. Sheath shows some light scratches.
