Antique~vtg G Woodhead 36 Howard St Sheffield Dagger Knife Dbl Edge Orig Sheath

welcome...

I'm about as far from a knife expert as you can get.

For instance, I know they're 'pretty.'

Yup, that's about it.

However, I did do a little research and learned: This is a double edged fixed blade dagger style knife. There used to be a "3" in front of the "6" which would therefore be "36 Howard Street"

The blade measures almost 5 inches, @ 4 7/8", the overall length of the knife is 8 3/4" long. The blade is 3/4" at it's base (which is the widest point), and the guard is @ 1 3/4" wide.

The handle is a creamy ivory color and it has a grain to it. It seems to me that the 3 dowel pins in the handle are actually wood, but I'm not 100% sure. They seem to match the butt which is also wood.

We're fairly certain that the sheath, which is a very soft, thin leather, is original and it also seems hand stitched on the edges. It also has a nice brass clip holder on the bottom of the sheath. It seems that some of these sheaths would also have a matching metal tip and as you can see, this one does not.

as for provenance and date of manufacture, not sure, though if it helps, it was originally owned by a Navy Seabee who was active during WWII, and he had had a small collection of knives from the late 1800's, early 1900's.

condition: PLEASE use the plentiful photos to aid inappraisaland discernment of condition. Here, however, are a few observations: There's some small rust spots and tarnish on the blade. The tip is not pointy, but the sides are sharp as sin. The "3" from "36 Howard Street" has worn off. There is a chip in the handle on one side (the back side). And a small crack in the handle on the right side of the center wooden(?) pin. We're pretty sure the leather sheath is original and it has wear, and a piece has flopped out near the tip.
