British Army Jack Knives 1880-1979

Article about: I cannot put an exact date on it, other than post war, maybe 1950's or 60's? But I am starting to guess now, which is not good. Cheers, Ade

    I think you got a nice deal.

    Re cleaning: I would leave them as is.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks. I like them. I think they'll be a display or drawer collection. Might be the beginning of something?!
    I suspect the 1952 example is Army Issue due to the broad arrow mark. But the 1939 is maybe surplus? What do you all think?
    Thanks again for your comments.

    Anyone know what the I*XL on the blade means.
    "I Excell..." which was used by Wostenholm and I think it was Joseph Allen who used NON.XL as in "Non Excell..."

    Nice knives by the way!

    Great collections everyone. They are 'heavy duty' - and a little
    difficult to open. I currently have only two British jack knives
    to contribute which I picked up locally.........

    Aye they are at times! I'll bet a few finger nails have been ripped off by the buggers!!

    Nice couple of knives you've got there.
