This unusual tool was made by the John Russell Company of Greenfield Massachusetts. I don’t know the exact use this particular knife had but I think it might have been a leather shoe knife. With the round handle I don’t think it was a hunting knife or used as kitchen cutlery. It could have been for something like linoleum but my tendency is still leaning toward shoes. It has a ferrule between the blade and the handle and the blade appears to be pinned in the handle. The blade is marked Russel Green River Works. I believe this from the late 1800’s or early 1900’s.

It measures almost 8” long. The blade portion measures about 3 ¾” long by about 1 5/8” at the widest and the handle measures about 1” in diameter tapering slightly at both ends. It appears to be in nice original but used condition.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
