    Overall (starting @ the lock) - 5" +/- in the score position - 8" the whittling position. Knife blade is approx. 3"
    Using the scoring end of the piece gives you a good handhold & a pretty sturdy 1/2" gouge - the blade is not as robust. Real nice design makes the switch between the 2 modes quick & simple.
    Looking forward to your input - thanks

      Is it a floater ?

      I'm not sure I understand the question - but it will sink like a stone in water

      Many fishing knives float, for the obvious reason.

      This is called a "barrel knife." They are usually of Swedish origin but the design of yours, with the brass endcaps and especially the plates being wider at the end than the diameter of the caps, indicates that it is probably German. Also, every Swedish one I've seen (hundreds) has had a plain maple wood handle. They come in every size from 1/2" to nearly 6" closed, with the average being about 3-3 1/2". And no, that is not a "scoring" tool; that's just the tang of the blade being made long so that when its rotated and locked in the working position there's lots of contact with the frame to prevent wobble and loosening. Made in Sweden from apx. 1850-1950. I don't know the German period but I suspect it's toward the late end.

      Looks like UncleRon nailed it -
      I watched a short youtube video which appears to show a flat butt end to the tang while mine approximates an edge ( could be just for ease of swivel ) so I wonder if some were used as multi-taskers.
      Thanks UncleRon
