Item D13 - C. E. Jennings Folding Handle Draw Knife. 

A quality maker of tools Charles E. Jennings was active between 1878 and 1923, ever acquiring tool companies and manufacturing tools under his several marks at various locations in New York state and generally throughout New England.  Smaller tool chests became a specialty of this company.  This folding draw knife bears the patent of Archer B. Jennings (relationship to Charles unknown) and is stamped with the C. E. Jennings name and “arrowhead” mark.  A. B. Jennings location at the time of the patent was Yalesville, CT—one of the Jennings factory sites.  Interestingly this patent is noted by DATAMP as “not known to have been produced.”  The knife is a nice one with lathe-turned conical handles of walnut (in a shape like those found on P.S.&W knives).  The handles are without fault.  And while the metal has medium tarnish, there is no rust or pitting.  The blade is deep and has plenty of hard steel under the lamination.  The edge length is 10 inchs, and with the handles open the wing span is 17 inches.  Fine.
