click for more pictures for item 2171f
Stamped on both the filled handle and solid silver blade "LAC" for Lionel Alfred Crichton, and with a leopard head for London, a lion for sterling, and an "r" for 1912, this knife measures 7 7/8" long. It weighs 1.6 T. oz., which total includes the fill that is in the handle.
The handle is a pistol grip style with a band that wraps around the upper edge, terminating in a double leaf design. The blade has a blunt end and broadens toward the tip.
It is in choice condition. The handle is free of dents or splits and remains securely attached to the blade, which is without bends, nicks, or burrs. The finish is superb.
