This antique knife is marked on one side E (Crown Symbol) R J. RODGERS & SONS 6 NORFOLK ST. SHEFFIELD ENGLAND. I found “Due to the "E" crown mark, assumed to have been made during reign of Edward VII.” The other side has a 6 point asterix or Star and Maltese Cross. I found “The mark of The Star and Maltese Cross was originally registered in March 1682 by a Benjamin Rich. However, it is with Rodgers that this mark will forever by associated and they registered it in 1764.” It measures approx. 6 1/8 inches long with a 1 ¾ inch long like blade. I found “Antique ink erasing scraper tool. Looks like a scalpel, but was used to scrape excess ink or mistakes off of vellum paper. Joseph Rodgers & Sons Company existed 1682-1975 in Sheffield . ” I am not sure of the handle material. The knife is well used with rust, scratches, stains and wear in good condition.
