I would say yes. Two reasons.
1.) Look at the feral where the handle and knife are connected. The grime, grit and rust (?) look original and the discoloration of the stag at that point looks undisturbed.
2.) The knife looks to be one half of a carving set (there would have also been a matching fork) and it was/is quite common for those to have stag handles.
