The two knife handles are shaped as the apostles saint Simon and saint James. Simon's characteristic attributes are the saw and the Bible, whereas James can be recognised by his staff and the pelgrim's hat with the shell. These handles of are of extraordinary quality and were never used, hence their outstanding condition.
