H&B MFG CO NEW BRITAIN CONN – Rare Little Congress Whittler Nice Bone
Main blade is marked H&B MFG CO NEW BRITAIN CONN. I believe that this is an early H&B knife made prior to the takeover of the company by LF&C. Probably pre 1900.
Congress splitback whittler pattern, just under 3” closed. All iron bolsters, liners, and old style hand-peened pins. Great snap on all blades, no wobble.
Nice jigged brown bone handles, one tight almost invisible pin crack on back at the lower main backspring pin.
