1930's William Scagel "unmarked" Utility Knife:
$163


I BELIEVE THIS TO BE AN AUTHENTIC 1930'S WILLIAM SCAGEL UTILITY KNIFE. IT IS "UNMARKED". SISTERS TO THIS KNIFE ARE SHOWN IN A SCANNED PHOTO TAKEN BY WILLIAM SCAGEL HIMSELF WHICH WAS MADE IN THE 1930'S. THIS PHOTO COPY IS INCLUDED WITH THE KNIFE. BASED ON THE BOOKS AND ARTICLES THAT I HAVE READ THERE ARE MANY KNOWN WILLIAM SCAGEL KNIFES THAT ARE UNMARKED. THERE ARE 3 MAIN REASONS THAT THERE ARE UNMARKED EXAMPLES. 1. SOME KNIVES WERE MADE FOR RESALE IN MAJOR SPORTING GOODS STORES AND THEY REQUESTED THEM UNMARKED. 2. SCAGEL MARKED HIS BLADES WHILE IN THE UNFINISHED STATE BEFORE TEMPERING AND SOMETIMES WHEN HE FINISHED GRINDING AND HANDLING THEM THE MARK HAD BEEN GROUND AWAY OR HIDDEN UNDER THE HANDLE. 3. LEADING INTO WWII GOOD STEEL WAS HARD TO OBTAIN AND SOMETIMES THE CUSTOMERS SUPPLIED THE STEEL WHICH DID NOT MEET UP TO SCAGEL STANDARDS, THEREFORE HE WOULD NOT MARK THE BLADE. THE BLADE IS 5 INCHES IN LENGTH. THE OVERALL LENGTH IS 9-1/4 INCHES. THIS KNIFE SHOWS OLD ORIGINAL PATINA BUT APPARENTLY IT WAS NEVER USED. IT HAS BEAUTIFUL STAG HANDLES RIVETED ON WITH 3 BRASS RIVETS. THE KNIFE SHOWS THE NORMAL SCAGEL CURVES AND UPPER BEVEL. I AM NOT A SCAGEL EXPERT SO PLEASE STUDY THE NUMEROUS PHOTOS AND DETERMINE FOR YOURSELF BEFORE offerDING. PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE OF offerDING. I WILL PAY THE COST OF SHIPPING AND INSURANCE AND TRACKING VIA PRIORITY U.S. MAIL.
