A very fine example of a 19th Century William Rodgers Silver Toothpick Knife in terrific condition. The knife comprises an elaborately decorated hallmarked silver handle – the hallmarks are at the bottom of the grip and difficult to make out but are there – see the images below. The blade is double-edged and retains all the original nickel finish. The knife comes complete with its original stitched leather scabbard with belt strap. The Sheffield knife making company of William Rodgers was a famous British cutler and known for producing thousands of quality knives throughout the 19th Century. They were a great exporter of their knives and many went to the American market and this style of knife would have been very effective as a small knife that could be carried either on a belt or in a pocket or bag. A very attractive knife. Blade length is 4.5 inches (9 inches overall).
