This is a real beauty, I have been after one for a while now.
Dates to 1889, and the mother of pearl scales are in extremely good condition for their age.
Size folded is 3 inches, open 5 1/4 inches. Even the spine is engraved (sorry no pics of this!), sort of like engine-turning.
I love the shape and carving on the scales, and the blade is in good nick too.
The maker (JEB) is John Edward Bingham (Sir) of Walker and Hall fame.
I got this last Friday, the last car boot of the holiday, and it cost the princely sum of £5!
