Another British Army Jack Knife.
A little rusty when I bought it, but has cleaned up quite well without much rust pitting. Fairly small and handy, its been used and the blade is worn down through sharpening. And very sharp too!
Good Sheffield carbon steel. Very obvious date and War Office 'Broad Arrow' on the can-opener. Unlike most of the other Army Jack knives I've seen, no marlin spike. The manufacturer's name on the tang of the blade is much harder to discern; GEO GILL & SONS, had to guess at the name and came up trumps on a Google search, one for sale on Etsy, though I have my doubts about it being made for Women in WW2, couldn't find any reference to clasp knives specifically made for women, but if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will let me know!https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/4683325 ... tary-issue
I'd like to learn more about this and other clasp / jack knives, do comment or add!
