A collectible mid 19th-century (circa 1860) English Victorian folding quill cutter - the slender blades designed for cutting quill pen nibs to shape.
Original high carbon antique steel blades that are strong and robust. Stamped 'FINE STEEL'.
Genuine mother of pearl panels on both sides.
The hinges are firm, the blades latching on at 90° and then 180° and have a good snap to them. No wobbles.
The blades are still thick and strong (not flimsy).
No personal inscriptions or monograms on the MOP.
Carbon steel, which unlike stainless steel, can be ground to a very sharp cutting edge. Early/antique folding knives were made using carbon steel.
DIMENSION: Length : CLOSED 6.7cm (2 5/8"). OPEN 12.8cm (5")
CONDITION: Good condition, some tarnish to blades, no damage. No splits to the mother of pearl panels.
