The handles are made of molded aluminum. Molded into the front handle is DELINEATOR (over) BOY SALES. The handles are also molded to mimic a jigged look. There are three aluminum screws in each handle which are commonly seen on Miller Bros. Knives. The knife has a single steel back spring. It has no cracks or breaks and continues to perform the functions it was designed to perform. This rare old Meriden Knife Co. boy’s knife is 3 1/16” in length and made between c.1917-1932.
