Sheffield T. Turner & Co. Cutlers to His Majesty Encore Gillott Horseman’s Knife Picture and Description:
This is a RARE opportunity to acquire a spectacular Antique horsemans knife to add to your collection. Whether you collect horsman knives, antique folders, English pieces, or Scheffield, you may never get another opportunity to own this particular piece. It's probably from the later 1800s and in pretty dang nice shape for its age. The main blade is 2-3/4 inches. It has some pitting but its nice and full and nice and tight. Great snap and no wiggle. The smaller blade is even nicer and equally tight with nice snap. No pitting on this one. The main blade is stamped "T. Turner Cutlers to His Majesty". The smaller blade is also stamped and it says "Encore Oil Joints Scheffield". There are no other markings on any of the blades. There is a sheild inlayed in the stag scale that says "Gillott". I am not sure if this is an owners name or somehow related to the pedegree of the knife? The hoof cleaner is in great shap. Nice strong spring on this one too as well as the punch and the cork screw. Even the old original tweezers are in place! The original bail is intact and in great shape. The knife has brass liners that are a little bent or wavy? I suspect the knife has been cleaned up at some point but very nicely handled. The stag scales have a beautiful patina. The scale on the side with the sheild has a hair line crack by the tweezer notch (see photo). The other side is flawless. Open knife is 6-3/8 inches. Closed knife is 3-7/9 inches (not counting the bail). Knife weighs 3.4 ounces. This is a RARE one. Don't let it get away!
