IXL GEORGE WOSTENHOLM TWO BLADE JACK Stag handled George Wostenholm Celebrated Cutlery featured on page 152 of ''Sheffield Exhibition Knives." 4 3/4'' oversized jack with two blades, one a long spear, the other a working large saw blade, very old pin within a pin rivets (birdseye pins), slide out tweezers under the handle, worked on the inside of the backspring. This is a much bigger knife than first appears. George Wostenholm Celebrated IXL Cutlery is the mark of this very old IXL folder, 2 blades, one is a large spear, the other a saw blade, with birdseye pin within pin rivets (generally this dates a knife prior to the Civil War), pull out tweezers under the handle, fileworked in a scallop pattern in the inside, nickel silver bar shield, grooved nickel silver bolsters. The knife has been cleaned, little blade wear but there are a few cleaned pits, otherwise condition is near mint. If you were this old you'd have a few pits too! 4 3/4'' closed, 8 1/2'' open.
