This is an early switchblade known as the button in the bolster. The Press Button Knife Co, in Walden, NY, made this knife. It is 8 ¼ inches long when opened, the blade is 3 ½ inches and the knife is 4 7/8 inches long when closed. The bolsters and lines are made of nickel steel and the handles are real jigged bone. This is a real good example of early American craftsmen, I only wish these knives could talk sometimes.
