Sheath Knife and Fork Combo

Sheath Knife and Fork Combo

SUM is excited to offer a reproduction sheath knife and fork that, to our knowledge, has not yet been reproduced.  Our reproduction is patterned from an original 19th century fork and knife combo in our collection.  The style started with Samuel Wragg of Sheffield, England, who patented this combination in the 1850s.  Several manufacturers went on to copy this design and at least one American company was offering them in the 1860s, as well as numerous English companies.  The interesting fact about this design is that it is appropriate for mid-19th century through World War I, and original examples also date to British Army World War I use.  When closed, the combo is approx. 8 inches long, 3/8 inches tall, and 13/16 inches wide.  The handle is made from rosewood, as per originals, and the carbon steel fork and knife are held in place by pins, as per many of the originals.  Own this piece of history that will not only be a conversation piece, but a useful reproduction for home or field!

    Sturdy and Useful

    The compact and less prevalent ingenuity of this product adds a fine detail to make your impression stand out. It's also well-made and will undoubtedly last a long time!

    I received this item fairly quickly and was impressed with the quality of the item. It was nicely made, the two pieces fit together smoothly and I can't wait to use it at the next reenactment. Well done.
