With a handle that is faced with fine old shell panels, this interesting utility knife is even more so. The blades, contrary to others we've seen, seem to be something made for a lady's use rather than a gentlemans, though perhaps I'm being sexist there. The 4 blades are shown, and include a button hook, a crochet hook, a fingernail file, and the more usual small blade likely used for either seam ripping or dual duty as a fruit knife. A handy pocket tool, indeed. Seems sewing related to me. You?
Very good condition, the handles are undamaged, no chips or cracks. The blades open smoothly, none are broken. A fine item for the collector, male or female!
