# 4800 / A stately 38 cm - 15 inches mid to late 19th century French MOP SB


This stately French switch folder is mounted with a sturdy 18 cm single edged blade which is 6 mm thick by the tang and tapered to the tip. The back spring is 7 mm thick.

Blade shows scratches from polishing and sharpening and some pitting due to age but still has its original patina and even if it is a little bit down in shape, it remains in full length

It aligns well with the spine and the handle.

The spring is powerful and fires great.

It locks tight in the open position with some side by side movement but no up and down

I sits deep in the handle when closed and the safety works as it should.

The knife is brass lined, also behind all 4 years of the guard and has nickel silver guard and button

Wonderful mother of pearl scales with no chips or cracks

Blade stamped *Le Jaune / Namur*

38 cm long when fully extended and 20 cm when folded
