# 4750 / Two Blade Trapper Knife. C. Johnson & Co Sheffield England


Two Blade Trapper Knife. C. Johnson & Co Sheffield England 

The trapper is one of a family of knives known collectively as jack knives. Strictly defined, a jack knife is a slip joint folder with two blades that both open from the same end of the handle.

The classic trapper has master clip blade and the secondary spey blade. The most obvious thing that distinguishes trappers from other jack knives is that a trapper has equal length blades

This very nice trapper knife features jigged bone handles and nickel silver boslters and was made by Christpher Jonhson & Co in Sheffield.

Christopher Johnson, who was born in Sheffield in about 1809, started his cutlery business (according to a trade catalogue) in 1836. In 1868, another partner, John Marshall, joined the business, and the title '& Co' was added. It was converted into Ltd in 1939 and in 1955 it was bought by Wostenholm and the factory was closed. The firm used as trade mark a flag enclosing its initials C.J

The knife remains in near mint conditions, blades are full and open and close properly. No damage to note. 8,5 cm folded and 16 cm long when main blade is out.
