    Original Victorian Gentleman’s Small Combination Fob Sheath Bowie Knife By Walter Thornhill & Co London Cutler To Queen Victoria With Ebony Handle, Additional Small Ivory Handled Blade, Steel Propelling Pencil & Leather Scabbard. Sn 13727 - 13727

    The name Thornhill has a history in knife making dating back to 1734. Thornhill was a maker of quality knives. Thornhill traded under various names. In 1832 a John James Thornhill is recorded at 144 New Bond Street & William and Frederick Thornhill are recoded as operating from 23 Fish Street, London. In 1850 a Walter Thornhill is recorded at the same address. In 1885 The company is recorded as Thornhill Walter & Co 144 & 145 New Bond Street & 6 Little Bruton Street London 'Cutler to The Queen & The Prince & Princess Of Wales. The Company went out of business C1912 (see pages 161 & 167 of the London Knife book By Flook). This is an unusual Victorian era Gentleman’s small combination sheath knife by Thornhill most likely worn fitted to a chain on a Gentleman’s waistcoat similar to fob watches in that era. It has a small 2 ¼” single edged Victorian era form Bowie blade & measures 5" overall. The blade is marked by the manufacturer 'Thorn’ above ‘Hill’ (Thornhill). It has excellent undamaged chequered ebony scales secured by rivets. The scales have slots at the butt end which conceal a tiny antique ivory handled, steel, spear point blade on one side (2 ½” overall length including handle) and on the other side a steel cylindrical propelling pencil which contains its original lead and is fully functional. The pencil measures 2 ½” overall length (The earliest extant example of a mechanical pencil was found aboard the wreckage of HMS Pandora, which sank in 1791. The first patent for a refillable pencil with lead-propelling mechanism was issued to Sampson Mordan and John Isaac Hawkins in Britain in 1822). The knife is complete with its original black leather open top sheath. The scabbard has a silver throat mount with hinged hanging ring. All leather and stitching are intact. Price for this unusual Victorian combination knife includes UK delivery. Sn 13727
