Tusk. n.s. [tẏxaf, Saxon; tosken, old Frisick.] The long teeth of a pugnacious animal; the fang; the holding tooth.
Some creatures have over-long, or out-growing teeth, called fangs, or tusks; as boars and pikes. Bacon.

As two boars,
With rising bristles, and with frothy jaws,
Their adverse breasts with tusks oblique they wound. Dryd.

Whetting his tusks, and churning hideous foam. Smith.
