Today we have an antique J. From 1898 per the twins (tang stamp) Nice Henckels for your collection. The reason it is a horseman's knife is the small blade with the rounded end.This was used for cleaning and or shaping the hoof of a horse out in the field. The main blade is mostly lacking in snap as well as having scratches from some past sharpening.
The main blade is 3 5/8 inches long closed it is 4 3/4 inches. Remember this knife is close to 125 years old. All the other blades work as they are supposed to. This knife is not really a user though you could if you wanted to.
It is more of a display or conversation piece. Brass liners and Henckels excellent carbon steel. Look at the pictures they do a better job of. This a very nice clean knife no digs or cracks in the stag. A little bit about me.My own work can be seen on the Arizona Custom Knives web site. I bring this up because as I collected these I always go over them remove any flaking chrome or rust, clean and oil all the pivots apply Renaissance wax to the surfaces. In General bring the knife back to as close to original as it allows. Henckels stag Horseman's knife Swiss Army style multi tool c. 1898" is in sale since Saturday, August 14, 2021.
