The knife comprises an elaborately decorated hallmarked silver handle - the hallmarks are at the bottom of the grip and difficult to make out but are there - see the images below. The blade is double-edged and retains all the original nickel finish. The knife comes complete with its original stitched leather scabbard with belt strap.
Famous British knife maker
The Sheffield knife making company of William Rodgers was a famous British cutler and known for producing thousands of quality knives throughout the 19th Century.

A very attractive knife. Blade length is 4.5 inches (9 inches overall).
