    It has a platypus kind of nose profile, serrated edges, a basket weave straw like handle, overall length 12.5 inches. It looks like an oak grain pattern in the wood (with the grain going lengthwise) The widest point is just shy of 4 inches. any ideas?


    This item was in the same case but had a physical defect so I passed on the opportunity. This may provide a "nearby" match to get you closer to answering the question at hand.

    Thanks for all of your ideas so far!
