J.Walters & Co. Antique Ivory Handled Knife

Antique knife with ivory handle beautifully crafted by J. Walters & Co. Manufacture date is before 1852 at 7 Carver Street in Sheffield, as J. Walters & Co. relocated to the former Globe Works Factory in 1852.
Knife appears to be carbon steel set in ivory with a single pin. Handle is very well secured.

The condition is fair/good; the blade has some oxidization, pitting and a few bends; however, this is a rare collectors piece.

Blade is stamped : J Walter 7 Carver St Sheffield
Knife measures 10 1/8"

Blade is approx. 6" x 5/8"

The only other one I have found is in a Museum Collection in B.C., Canada
Also check out some antique J. Walters advertising, the cards are third down on the list!
