Item D10 - J. S. Cantelo Folding Draw Knife.

John Cantelo of Boston was known as a maker of high quality, heavy draw knives that used at least five patents over the 1880s and 90s. This is an example of his penultimate patent that featured moving a pair of drum-like handles to fix the handle position. This example works easily and well. This example is in top condition, having no rust, pitting or other faults. The 8 inch blade is clean and sharp, with a deep blade having lots of life left in it. The handles are solid, with no cracks, and retain most of their original finish. It is a much better example than is usual to find. Fine
