Being offered for sale is the antique DRAW KNIFE by L. & I.J. WHITE (very worn, virtually illegible maker's mark at blade - we are like 99% sure we see the the typical oval White 1837 logo), of Buffalo, New York, circa the mid -to- late 19th century (best guess), as seen in the pictures/as described in the title. PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES. Being offered for sale AS-FOUND, uncleaned (except at/around the maker's mark, which was lightly wire-wheeled as required to determine manufacturer). May require a thorough detailing to bring to its full potential. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED or your money back...no questions asked!
