All these years I've been calling this a swordfish and today I thought maybe it's actually a marlin. So I looked them both up and discovered it's neither. It's a sailfish. How no one in all these years never thought to correct me I'll never know. But it is a stinking sailfish. This is one of the four different outdoor scenes Imperial made with foil covers on a Texas Toothpick or Fish Knife. I recently sold a set of all four and was going to use this one to accumulate another full set but I no longer have the time. This is an Imperial 1-Blade Texas Toothpick or Fish Folding Pocket Knife.  The knife has a lightly used and sharpened carbon steel clip point blade with a long nail pull. The front face has scratches from use and sharpening and even some very light staining. The rear face is in the same general condition as the front face.  But have a few light scattered pits. The blade still looks to be 100% full. Stamped on the front tang is Imperial (with the Imperial crown over the top)(over) PROV USA.  Stamped on the rear tang is P and two (2) patent numbers. The blade still has excellent hard and loud snap on both open and close.  The covers on this knife are the draw. Imperial came out with four different outdoor scenes on these knives. There was a sailfish, a flying mallard, a hunting dog and a pheasant. The red, green, gold and black covers are still in great condition with no cracks, splits, missing chips or missing slivers. The knife has brightly polished "Nuloy” rounded bolsters and clasp type end caps each with a single flute.  The knife has steel liners and a single steel back spring. The back spring is free of any cracks or breaks and continues to perform the functions it was designed to perform. This Imperial toothpick or fish knife with the foil covers of a sailfish is 4 1/4” in length. Made by the Imperial Knife Co of Providence, Rhode Island between c.1946-1956. Additional information or photos upon request.
