New York Knife was a company that made knives with the fancy scrolled aluminum bolsters.Not sure if there were others.

Beautiful knife, Joe! Considering how nice that pearl and bolsters look, that knife must have been very pampered.

Good point about the use of aluminium in that era KJ. I know it was too expensive to use for most stuff, but really I have no idea how it's value compared to silver, for example.

Thanks. Is there a way to differentiate duralumin from aluminum ? Knowing which of these the bolsters on OP knife are might help to date it.

Great looking pen knife, Ken.
They put a heck of a nail nick on that main blade didn't they? Nice!

Thank you for contributing here.
