Unusual(?) William Rodgers Pen Knife

Post by hyppy » Tue Mar 09, 2021 1:01 pm

I thought I'd share this purely as I can't see any others like it online so thought if it might be of interest to others. Feel free to yawn and let me know that it's actually a really common model if so!

It's 'as found' so could perhaps with a bit of a clean, stamped "William Rodgers Sheffield" on one blade, and I believe (from seeing it elsewhere on AAPK) "I cut my way" on the other, although that's fairly worn/unclear. I can see a similar one for sale with a black handle with a listed date of 'early to mid 1900s' so assume this is the same sort of age and would tally with its owner, a 106yo relative. Anyway, this one has a nice green handle!

I have never seen a Wm. Rodgers knife, or any other British knife with handles like on this knife. Maybe they are a replacement ?
