# 4932 / Antique MOP CONGRESS type folding pocket

The Congress knife arrived on the scene in the early 1800s. Most likely the name Congress refers to the way the way the blades of the knife come together (as in the equal numbers of blades are located on both ends of the knife and then come together or meet in the middle of the handle).

It is characterized by its curved body and double blades on each end. This wonderful exemplar of Congress knife features a sheep foot blade, a spare point blade and two pen blades. The typical curved handles are made of outstanding mother of pearls scales over brass liners with striped brass long bolsters

The knife seems to have never been used, the blades haven't loose anything of the original shape being in full profile and still lock up with a firm snap. Razor sharp, some overall pitting due to age and time

It measures 9 cm when folded.
