This knife sharpener is from around the turn of the 1900’s with a size of 19” in length (handle and sharpener). It was made by Nichols Bros. in Greenfield, Massachusetts. It looks like it is coming away from the stag handle a little bit but there is no play what so ever in the piece. It might be just the way it was fitted over 100 years ago. Check out the pictures on this interesting piece.
