Vintge H&B MFG. Co. New Britain, Conn. Very Old New England Knife w/Stag handles: $390
H&B Manufacturing Co. New Britian, Conn. was produced between 1852 & 1916 putting this knife over 100yrs. old for when LF&C. bought Humason & Beckley MFG. Co. in 1912I doubt that they were using stag for their handles, I would think that this knife was produced well before 1900. This folding slim lockback knife is 4,1/2" long in the closed position, the single clip blade has been lightly sharpened and has H&B stamped on the face of the blade and still has good snap and locks up with the slightest amount of wiggle, which is extroardinary considering its age. The knife has great highly figured stag handles that are near perfect just two very, very, fine and small hairlines, one at the center pin and the other at the end pin both on the front handle. It has a Nickel Silver top bolster and nice gimp shaped shield. This is a very old New England knife that is a true antique and really deserving to be in a fine collection of older knives.
