Help identify

Post by Jfine22 » Tue Jan 07, 2020 11:56 pm

Can anyone help me identify what the thin tool is called or what it was used for?

Looks like a fruit knife. The “thin tool” is for picking seed from citrus.

A lot of fruit knives have sterling silver blades. Can you tell if it is steel or silver? Any silversmith markings?

I cannot find any markings on the knife but I think you’re correct about it being a nut pick. Thank you

I found the below picture in another post. It is the same engraving pattern. Does the name under the photo mean anything to anyone?

The name under the picture is the name that is engraved onto the handle;likely the original owner.There is no maker's name on the knife.

It looks to me like the knife might be silver plate. You can tell by gently and slightly bending the seed pick. If plate it will move back to the original position. If silver it will stay bent but you can gently bend it back to the original position.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
