The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I have several photos of the Knife and will add some here as I am having an issue with only uploading one at a time. The woodworking I do are trains, ships and wheeled toys. Both blades are spring loaded and both work. I sold them on Etsy but had to give up my workshop to support my wife and her sales on Ebay. Here are some knife photos:
What I know about the Knife: It was manufactured at the Press Button Knife Company. They were in business 1892-1923. Both blades are spring loaded and both work. There are U.S. patents engraved on both blades. The handles are Sterling Silver with images of Washington DC buildings. The blades have very little movement when opened. I hope this helps. I do have more detailed photos, if that helps. Thanks all for your help. Ted
Best suggestion I can give is to check with something like worthpoint.
I don't have a membership, but they have one that may give you a ballpark price.
There may be some collectors here, also, that can give you additional information.
