Well, is one of the most unusual looking knife/fork combo I have ever seen. It's wood(not sure what kind) and is held together with a brass locking device. As you can see in the pictures, it is pretty good size. Dimensions are:Overall length: Approx. 17 1/4" long Knife section: Approx. 15 3/4" long Knife blade: Approx. 7 1/2" long Fork section: Approx. 15 1/4" long Tines: Approx. 5 1/2" long The blade and tines have "INDIA" stamped on them. On the wood handle of the knife t is a number "23" stamped on it. I have no idea how old this "knork" is, but my parents brought it back from Hawaii for me in 1970. So I know it's at least 36 yrs. old.(ha ha) The 23 on the handle could mean 1923 but I'm just not sure. This knife/fork combo is in great shape except for a few minor scratches and nicks. Nothing major that would detract from the beauty of it. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding. Watch for more stuff from the "Morning Glory House".
