    Inter War 1922 Dated Sheffield Made Gentleman’s ‘Pellet Patent’ Folding Pen Knife With 18ct Gold Scales Assay marked ‘SM & Co’ (S.Mordan & Co London) Engraved ‘WCD’. Sn 12490 - 12490

    Sampson Mordan (1790 – 9 April 1843) was a British silversmith and a co-inventor of the first patented mechanical pencil. During his youth, he was an apprentice of the inventor and locksmith Joseph Bramah, who patented the first elastic ink reservoir for a fountain pen. In 1822, Mordan and his co-inventor John Isaac Hawkins filed the first patent in Great Britain for a metal pencil with an internal mechanism for propelling the graphite "lead" shaft forward during use, as an improvement on the less complex lead holders that merely clutched the pencil lead to hold it into a single position. Upon Mordan's death in 1843, his sons Sampson (junior) and Augustus inherited the firm. "S. Mordan & Co." continued to make silverware and brass postal scales until 1941, when their factory was destroyed by bombs during the London Blitz. This is an excellent Gentleman’s folding pen knife by "S. Mordan & Co.". The small knife has 2 single edged stainless steel folding blades. Both blades have Mordan’s patented ‘pellet’ opening system which consists of small round ‘pellets’ affixed to posts on the back of the blades to assist opening. One blade is 1 ½” length and the other 1 ¼” length. One blade is stamped ‘Sheffield made’, the other ‘Pellet Patent’ (illustrated). It has solid Gold scales both stamped with 18ct British Gold Assay marks ‘SM & Co’ (S.Mordan & Co London). Hallmarks are illustrated. One scale is engraved ‘WCD’ and dated ‘1922’. The scales are fitted with Gold hinged loop with ring attached (the loop has Gold Assay marks which are to small to photograph). The pen knife weighs 20 grams. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12490
