No man should be without a penknife, and this would make an ideal gift for the man who has (almost) everything. Just don't have it in your pocket when you fly abroad! It was made in Birmingham in 1972, engine-turned on both sides, and with two bright shiny sharp Made in Sheffield stainless blades. The sides are not just a thin gold overlay-they are substantial solid gold around 1mm thick. I estimate around 10 grams of gold.
Excluding the suspension ring, the penknife is 2 5/8 inches: 67 mm long. It is as new.
