HENRY SEARS & SON PRUSSIA Corn Knife
HENRY SEARS & SON PRUSSIA Corn Knife is 3 3/16" closed. Knife appears to be in excellent condition with the exception of two hairline cracks in the back handle at the end rivets. I beleive the handles are water bufallo horn. Nothing loose or missing. Dramatically shaped blade appears full and has good snap. Goins' book dates this stamp c. 1883-1897
These knives were used for paring the corns from feet back in the day when shoes were not so affordable to all. Ill fitting shoes resulted in corns forming on feet.
