WW1 Era A. Milns & Co Sheffield British Soldier’s Double Bladed Folding Clasp knife With Bone Scales. ED 2438 - ED 2438

This is a nice version of one of the types of knives packed into some of the gift boxes sent to British troops during WW1 (see page 136 of Flook’s British & Commonwealth Military Knives). The knife has 2 fold out blades. The 3” single edged blade is signed by the maker ‘A. Milns & Co Sheffield’. The smaller 1 ½” double edged blade is unsigned and doubles as a tin opener. The blades have just staining consistent with age. The blades which can be seen in the images fold neatly into its steel frame which has bone scales, factory gouged to provide better grip. The grips are secured by secured by pins and have steel bolsters. One scale has a very fine old & secure crack near to the top pin which can only be seen on close inspection. Both scales are perfectly secure. The knife has a copper lanyard ring. Closed the knife measures 5” length. The length with larger blade open measures 8” overall. The price includes UK delivery.
