$155 Scuthing Knife #5

Length 24"

Depth 4"

antique Swedish scutching knife

Swedish dated 1824. Green background with dusty rose flowers and buds.

This painted and decorated type was an engagement or wedding present and wasn't intended to be used. Young girls had allotments to grow their flax, then process it for their wedding chests. I would imagine that this knife was given to a young woman who was especially talented and proud of her efforts.
