I JUST GOT THIS OUT OF AN OLD ESTATE. THIS FORM IS RARE TO FIND.
IT IS FROM THEIR EARLY PERIOD. LIGHTLY CLEANED SEVERAL DECADES AGO BUT STILL HAS DARK PATINA AREAS. IT IS STRAIGHT AND BALANCED THOUGH THE TIP HAS SLIGHT CURVE AS SHOWN AND LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE IN PAST USED TOOL TO STRAIGHTEN PART OF BLADE AS SHOWN. I DID NOT CLEAN THIS IN ANY WAY. THIS FORM RARELY APPEARS AND I HAVE ONLY SEEN 2 OTHERS IN NEARLY 25 YEARS.IT MEASURES 7 7/8 INCHES AT ITS OVERALL LONGEST. BLADE IS A BIT OVER 1/2 AN INCH AT HIGHEST POINT.

This item is in the category "Antiques\Periods & Styles\Arts & Crafts Movement". The seller is "timber035" and is located in Youngstown, Ohio. This item can be shipped to United States.
