"Recycled slate bladed dagger, (recycled because in a previous use, due to the drilled hole, this blade might have been an ulu knife with a different shape and usage. Most likely this ulu had been resharpened extensively and no longer usable as it was made too short. It had then been reworked for a pointed dagger blade supported by a Mammoth ivory handle with an image of a fantastic beast with pointed ears that perhaps is actually a 'wolverine' or and 'ermine.' The back of the knife is a motif of a skeletal motif suggesting an Amulet by purpose typically a spiritual link by the owner."
