The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
It took me two years to find a quality example of this knife, but finally I did.
Many of you have seen this knife and some own one.
This is the Civil War Veteran's Knife or the One Arm Man's Knife and sometimes just called the One Armer.
It was developed by the Press Button Knife Company out of Waden New York to provide veteran's who had lost their arm a way to use a knife and utensils with just one arm...open, use it, close it. Ingenious and during and after the Civil War there were a lot of men that needed it.
These are aluminum handles with a ton of intricate scroll work and this example came thru in very good shape. no real dents or nicks.
