Description

The Sheffield Directory (1828) listed: ‘William and John Nowill, manufacturers of silver fruit and dessert knives, fancy, pen and pocket and desk knives, also nails, files, button hooks, stilettos, etc., 7 Meadow Street’. On 28 December 1836, Thomas Nowill died aged 78, from ‘natural decay’ as the General Cemetery register termed it (See page242 of ‘The Sheffield Knife Book’ by Geoffrey Tweedale). This is a nice original, British Sheffield made Sportsman’s Folding Knife. It has a 2” single edged blade, claw blade/bottle opener, corkscrew, spike and what could possibly be a can opener. Some of the blades are stamped by the Sheffield manufacturer '' with 'J.Nowill & Sons’ and Sheffield England’. All have staining consistent with age but no damage. It has German polished and chequered grips and a lanyard shackle. When closed the knife measures 3 ½” length (including shackle). The price includes UK delivery. ED 2204.
