Victorian Miltary Square Point Clasp Knife.

I was lucky enough to find this scarce example of the square point folding knife as described in Ron Flook's book on British military knives, pages 125 to 127. He quotes that these were issued to both army and naval personnel. This knife has had a hard life but considering its age its still a nice example. The stag scale handle is in very nice undamaged condition, the blade has seen a lot of service use and has been sharpened, the makers details are faint but i can make out the name for the firm Thomas Turner. It has lost it copper staple.
