The Lhatse Knife (in this case only part of) is handcrafted, late 1900's and a traditional Tibetan Nomad Woman's Tribal Utility Knife. The delicate silver, brass and copper scabbard once housed a strong steel blade.  The ornate handle head remaining is a fine example of Tibetan metal craftsmanship. The scrolling floral designs are traditional and stands alone as a piece of art. Found recently within the Tibetan Barkhor in Lhasa.
