This knife looks like the same pattern, Augie. It is a hair under 3 3/8" long, but only two thick.
Same size/pattern, but three thick. Joseph Rodgers again.
I wonder if your knife and my two were made in the same cutlery??
A 3 spring with 5 tools J. Crossland & Sons (1868-1924)
Absolutely Stellar Knives Charlie and Charles.
Charlie, absolutely stunning examples, they do look like the same pattern but doubt same cutlery , while mine is nicely finished your Rodgers beauties are quite a step up in quality.
Sadly, Mick @wellington, who started this thread, has passed away: https://www.bladeforums.com/threads...ales-vignettes.754492/page-1138#post-18805147

NB THIS INFORMATION IS INCORRECT - Apologies folks (and Mick), I was misinformed.
Sorry for your loss, Jack, and all BF members that knew him.
He's been missing for a while!!
We are all deprived of a great collector!!
A loss beyond understanding for many that visit here. Mick was one of the definitive words when it came to Sheffield. He provided much insight to me personally as I developed my Sheffield collection both through his thread here and direct contact. Always willing to assist.
We are greatly diminished.
Prayers my brother. And profound thanks.
I am extremely saddened to hear this. Mick and I corresponded a while back - then he dropped out of sight- I got to hear back from him the once more saying that he had a bit of land and he was busy with that- then that was the last I heard from Mick.
Really sad sad news - this thread has lost two amazing contributors with Mick and Charles.
Good news, I traded emails with Mick (Michael Critchlow) this week in regards to this knife. Bruce Voyles recently had a bunch of knives in an auction that were in the "Sheffield Exhibition Knives" book. I managed to buy this 2-inch closed whittler from the auction. Check out some of the knives in the auction! Try as I might, I can't get good photos or scans of pearl.
Fantastic news Mike, and congratulations on that beauty. I hope that Mick is well, and certainly much recovered!
Thank you. He said "I'm fit and as well as I have ever been." He knew of these knives before they went on sale in the 1990s and before they ended up in the book, so it was good chatting with him.
I bet that was a good conversation Mike, Nice wee Knife! if you hadn't had the Dime there I would have guessed that knife being bigger- Gorgeous piece Mike.
That's great to hear Apologies folks (and Mick) for my erroneous post, I was clearly misinformed!
Thanks Duncan. It took a steady hand to do those swedges!
No worries Jack - I am SO SO GLAD to hear Mick is well and happy- what excellent news. I hope one day he comes back to visit his great Thread !
Mike - just to stand and watch those Cutlers at work!
Thanks Duncan, me too
I'm glad to hear Mick is doing well! Rumors of his passing were greatly exaggerated!!
In honor of the good news, Here is a JR from the same Exhibition and Book!!
