    What do I have here? Both sides are a soft silver metal that is engraved, 2 edged blades, one straight pick. Knife blades stamped with a Spur and "Sheffield" above the spur and "England" below the spur as shown below:

    any ideas if it has any value?

    The knife is 3 1/8" in length folded and 5/8" wide on the wide end and .5" on the narrow end. The blades are 1.5" and 1.75" and the "pick" is 2.25" in length.

    I was really hoping that some one would have chimed in on this one. It is an interesting knife.

    Ever since I saw this thread last week I have been looking for a book that I have on knives and their values by a fellow named Bernard Levine. I have searched my house high and low but just can't find it.

    It's an English fruit knife.The spike is for nuts,so you can pick out the last bits in the shell.
