Description: Here is a well-documented Carl Auböck III design.  This is another classic Auböck design of an oversized version of an everyday object, but that is ergonomic and useful.  It was made to be used and feels that way in your hands.  These were made with either horn, leather or wood handles.  This, like the others we have seen are marked with the impressed Stainless Austria markings. The horn is in amazing condition as is the entire object, especially considering it was used for its intended purpose.
