Here are two interesting antique folding pen knives purchased in England recently. They were made in early Victorian times (1830-1850) with blades of carbon steel and encased in mother-of-pearl and faux tortoise shell. They were called pen knives because they were originally used to trim quill pen nibs. They were also used in camping and fishing especially helpful in cutting lines as the steel is extremely strong. In excellent condition, they would add to your antique knife collection or for many of today's uses as well. They measure 2 1/4 inches and the knives are about 1 1/2 inches long Thanks for your interest in these beautiful and rare examples of early folding knives. Calligraphers may be interested in them as they use pens similar to the early ones.
