    I found this knife buried under a cedar tree about 25 years ago. I would like to see if anyone has a guess of what kind it is. I would like to acquire another one that’s working and put them in a display case side by side.

      All this one needs is a little cleaning. LOL !!

      Put in citric acid solution.

      Did the Swiss army have fork & spoon ?

      Rustyknife, Cool.

      BTW, if you want to try cleaning the rust off of this pocket knife, as Karl-Fodor suggested, you could use citric acid, but you could also use regular Coca-Cola. Ask the motorheads; they know that trick.

      However, it seems risky, and perhaps not a good idea, depending on how old or rare this item might be.

      Here's a vintage soldier's pocket knife:


      Soldier's Knife / Fork / Spoon Combination. A great example of an essential piece of mess gear, these folding utensil combinations saw widespread use. This example is in fine condition with a deep spoon, three-tined fork and knife blade marked "Lamson, Goodnow and Co."


      And here's a modern 'hobo's' knife:

      All Stainless Steel
      Closed length 4-1/4"
      7 functions:

      Can Opener
      Cork Screw
      Leather Punch
      Bottle Opener

      blunderbuss2, None of my official Victorinox or Wenger Swiss Army pocket knives have had fork and/or spoon attachments, but one of my Leatherman pocket knives (a retired edition) has a cocktail weenie fork attachment :
