I’m away from home, so I have no reference material, but I think J. WARD /BRONXVILLE, NY is a good deal older than 1913.
Pretty sure Abraham Lincoln was presented with a very fancy, pearl handled, gold etched, multi-bladed commemorative knife. There are photos of that knife here on ASK somewhere.
I suspect the OP knife is all ivory and yes, it’s a fruit knife.
