Double helix penknife

Unusual penknife with silver scales , a large fluted double helix worm, knife, button hook, curved blade with serrated edge and short stubby screwdriver. The silver scales have British silver hallmarks -  “JB AJ” for the maker, “F” for 1881 and lion and leopard’s head for London.  The button hook and screwdriver are indistinctly marked “P&F Schafer” for the original Patentee ( F Schafer German Patent 1877) and London retailer.  The curved blade is marked “W Thornhill”.


Condition – Very good – worm is excellent, but there is one broken knife blade.
