Pocket Knives (4). Inc an early example with black horn handle believed to be a Royal Navy Sailor's deck knife, made by Atkinson Brothers, Sheffield (1845 to present times). It is WD2 stamped. This is unusual for a Navy knife as the RN ceased using War Dept stamps in 1845. The handle shows insect damage. Worthy of further research. The all metal Sailor's deck knife with checkered grip, dated 1944 issued to Commonwealth Sailors & some AIF units, pitting to blade. The other 2 Sailor's knives are commercial. One is marked 'Lloyd Triestino' & T/S Marconi (? Training ship Marconi of the Lloyd Triestino Line?). The other is a stainless steel Yachtsman's knife.
