During the 18th and 19th century most adults would have a small pocket knife. This would be used for anything from aiding needlework to peeling a piece of fruit.

 

These two knives are quiet fine, with bone panels covering the steel blades and would have been used by a lady. Most sewing kits would contain a small pocket knife, and a lady would also use it for peeling a piece of fruit. It would be considered a necessary accessory of the time. Both knives have folding blades.

 

In good condition with no splits to the bone, and the blades retract well.

 

Dimensions: 6.5cm in length and 6cm in length.
