I was given a folding knife and I am trying to find out what or who manufactured it. My knowledge of knives is limited at best,but the people in this forum seem to be very knowledgable so I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out.I will post pictures as soon as I figure out the procedure.The body of the knife looks to be made of ivory,maybe piano-key?On one side there is a scrimshaw ocean scene with a large 3-masted ship in the middle ,to the left of the ship a whale's tail sticking up out of the water,to the right of the ship a lighthouse,with water under it all,and clouds for a background.On the other side of the knife body is the name Hawaii carved in a flowing script.Also on the side of the knife body with the ocean scene there is the name Sharps engraved vertically on the left side.It looks like Sharps anyway,its hard to make out for sure.This folding knife contains a penknife blade,a file blade,and a scissors.On the penknife blade is Frost Cutlery,surgical steel,and Japan.Those three things I do know a little about,nothing good,but a little.I would sure appreciate it if any of you could help me figure out where this little guy came from.Thx

It is one of the Frost Cutlery folders. The handle material isn't ivory.

Is it a single blade or two blade?

Nail nick traditional or one hand opener cutout?
