I'm suspicious of the hilt and scabbard material; I think I can see casting voids in the handle especially.

I would think ones like Dana's example would have been popular with Cattle Ranchers back in the day.

Bro, that's a White Pointer .... they came with the seals.
Those seals consume roughly 500,000 pounds of fish per day.

This shark is an average sized Grinner.
