    Thanks steveHB..do you think my knife dates to 1879 or there abouts?
  8. Vulcan penknife

    As there is not an enland stamp on the tang does this mean that it is dated at about 1889.?

    Thats what i thought.originally i thought it was bland but now after a longer look at it i love the green tinge and how the colours flow together.

  13. Violin penknife

    Hi there everyone.just wondered if you could help me out .i have just brought a novelty penknife in the shape of a violin .The thing is ime not sure wether it was made in sheffield or not because its not stamped anywhere on the tang with sheffield.looks really old and the blade looks well worn even where the blade rubs on the spring.looked at it with a magnifying glass and has G S on one side and what looks like N ROLIGHT on the other side.looked on the webb and havent found another one as yet or the name if its correct.Any help would be much appreciated.

    Done some more reseach and it seems as though the blsde was made by JJ Beal and may be J Brooks just made the sheath.?
