Antique Landers Frary & Clark 3” pen knife from their early production 1912-1920’s. Carbon steel blades, silver plated handle scales and bail for key chain.
The knife has the look of one carried for decades. Blades have good snaps and main blade shows a fair deal of sharpening, the bail also shows wear from hanging on a watch chain.
LF&C was a massive operation out of New Britain Ct. that made knives as well as many other products. Their older knives are a great example of the use of skilled labor in factory production of cutlery.
Most vintage pocket knives come unsharpened unless specified or requested.
