Help with ID on a pocket knife.

Post by DMLEATH » Sat Nov 14, 2020 8:30 pm

Good day! First time here. I have an older pocket knife that I need some help with. I have researched it a bit and haven’t come up with who makes this. Any help is much appreciated.

Very interesting knife, I like it. ::tu:: I have no information to give, other than it has horn handles and appears to be French.

From this picture, it looks like what Levine calls square and clean (with half-stops). I'd guess late 1800 - early 1900. They just don't make them like this anymore.

Not sure if these pictures confirm 'square & clean' joints. (aka 'square & flush'). Need to see bolsters end on with blades at half stop and at fully closed.

Thanks for these pictures. Not a flush & square tang.
If you have a GEC #23 or #73, they have flush & square tangs.

Close but no cigar, that is a pretty thick spring.

Actually it looks like one end is flush & square and the other is definitely not. I have never seen a set up like this before.
