With 'oldies' it is best to not have more than 1 blade on a spring open at the same time.
I have never had a spring break but others have when setting up for a picture with all blades open.
It's a 2 blade double ended jack, with the spear (as shown) and a clip blade, on two separate springs. Being only 3-3/8" closed length, I don't know if this length qualifies it as a Moose pattern or Bullhead or Texas jack. Further, the shield side as shown above, has the spear blade in what I would consider the master blade position. I thought I read somewhere that Levine says for it to be a moose pattern, the master blade has to be the clip blade, with a spear secondary. But being as I'm so new to all of this, I could have all of this wrong.
