Thanks Phil and Tom.
Looks like some one put it away wet at sometime but it's still a little honey.

Another knife by the old Southington Cut. Co. 1867 - 1905
3 1/2", 1/2 stops X 2
After all these years a strong old knife. The slightest wobble on the main only.
Thanks for looking.

The good luck of Southington figured into the glorious comeback victory by my Yellowjackets this afternoon, so what better than to bump this thread in celebration!

The "old gold" in my navy & old gold combo is a well-used brass-handled Southington jack:
