ID help needed on a miniature German four blade

Post by DMLEATH » Mon Dec 05, 2022 4:14 am

I have this miniature knife that almost looks like a very tiny congress. I can make out Germany but not the maker. Any help is much appreciated!

KRUSIUS BROTHERS, made in Germany. 1856-1983. Nice piece, J.O'.

Very cool tiny congerss1! Congress is a handle pattern, size or amount of blades makes no difference. Even if it is a jack knife with two blades on one end, or a whittler with one blade on one end and two on the other, if it has that handle shape it is a congress.

Gunsil thanks for clarifying that. I had been wondering if it was still a congress being that small or if size made a difference.
