I have listed this as a knife/ scraper, l think scraper is the most likely, probably used in the curing of hides. The handle is carved in the likeness of a polar bear & has inlaid eyes & nose. A genuine curiosity, & a relic of an endangered culture- only the need to thin out my collection persuades me to part with this.
