Description

Victorian Saynor Cooke & Ridal Folding Pocket knife. ED 2451 - ED 2451

This is a scarce folding knife with one blade and a folding rubber tapping tool and tree scribe. These were used on rubber plantations for scoring the rubber tree and letting the rubber sap flow. Most were fixed blade knives so it is unusual to find one on a folding pocket knife. Saynor Cooke & Ridal, who were based in Edward Street, Sheffield at the Paxton works, were noted for their high quality knives of a horticultural nature and this was their speciality. Both blades carry the name SAYNOR COOKE & RIDAL and the firms trademark of a penny farthing bicycle. The grips are made of stag horn held by 4 pins. Both scales are perfectly secure. Closed the knife measures 5 7/8“ length. The length open measures 7 1/8” overall. This is a unusual knife probably carried by a Victorian rubber plantation owner. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2451
