If sentiment can be attributed worth, then this 7 3/16" long, just under 1.0 T. oz., youth knife may have an intrinsic value above its peers.

It is engraved "Bennie From Papa 1870" on the backside of the handle. Bennie and Papa are now lost to history, but the affection of one for the other remains with the piece and is a reflection of how artifacts can take on a near spiritual component and thereby transcend the usual metrics of price.

The pattern is "Grecian" by Gorham. The company... Click for details
