Eagleton co. A Solingen based manufacturer. According to my research, the tang stamp indicates 1890 production.
This knife is solid like the day it was made, though unfortunately one of its previous owners was enthusiastic using the grinder ::td::

Just a relic, but an old and rare one.

Interesting knife and intriguing history. Do you think his partner John Clauss, who bought out his interest in Elyria Shear Company, might be the founder of Clauss Cutlery of Fremont, OH?

That's a bird call. Various bird-like sounds and chirps can be made according to how you twist the metal "plug" into the hole in the wood part of the device. When it doesn't chirp as well as you want, apply a little powdered rosin to 'tune' it up.

Good call Fran.
It belongs to my daughter, and it will drive her cat mad looking around for the bird. :)

Here is one I got today from Bob R.
Wade Wingfield & Rothbottom
No.82 Tenter St. Sheffield

Blade Etch:
W.T. Hancock & Co.
308 High Holborn

A search of that name, shows they were a sporting gun dealer. There is one Birmingham gun, made for the trade with their name on it. Boothroyd lists them at that address with Watson from 1886 to 1890.

Here's another for the list: LAFAYETTE CUTLERY CO. GERMANY. Easy-Open Jack. Knife is nothing more than a relic. Secondary blade ground away to nothing, handle split, no snap (blades are very stiff open and close, but a stamp we've not seen yet
