Hey Guys, Here are a couple more interesting Maher knives. It may be hard to tell from the pics but both knives are same size 3 3/4" Closed.
One knife has a much thicker backspring & Master blade & The extra handle pin on front side is located in a different spot than its twin sister knife. The knife that has Etching & long pulls on both blades is the knife with "smaller" thickness blade & backspring but also has a "Curved Stamping" secondary blade. Cool huh
Kindest Regards,
Mark

Those jacks have some age.Lightly very early 1900's late 1800's.The top knives I haven't seen anything like it before.I think it is re-handled.Undyed bone and carved.I would speculate it had pearl that was damaged.

The ~3" swell center pen looks like front handle is ivory and rear is a replacement with bone ? Stanhope viewer with lens missing ?
Here is a nice old 3 5/16" Maher & Grosh pen knife. Solid knife with nicely rounded handles.
