Introducing the British Antique Folding Knife.

A penknife is a small knife used to sharpen the tip of a quill pen.
It seems that you can also sharpen pencils and use it like a letter opener.
This is a little larger than a pen knife, so it may be a fruit knife.
Pure silver is soft and cannot cut hard objects, but carbon steel blades cut through fruit.
Pure silver blades were used for fruit knives because they are vulnerable to acid.

This is the work of "Hilliard and Thomason" in Birmingham, England in 1897.
The sterling silver handle is beautifully engraved and the blade is also sterling silver.
Due to its size, it can also be used as a letter opener.
Comes with a leather case that looks like an elongated clasp.


We hope this lovely folding knife will brighten up your day!
