Click Image for Gallery
Single blade vintage Imperial toothpick Fish Knife with scaler on the blade back and a hook remover at the knife tip. This pocket knife measures 5 inch long with a 3-1/2 inch blade. The blade is marked Imperial, Providence, R.I. on the knife bolster, while Fish-Knife appears on the side shield and Hook Remover on the curved metal tip. The black knife casing has a jigged bone texture finish. Blade is firm, with no wobble. There is some oxidation to the metal, but no chips or cracks noted. I believe this knife dates to the 1930s or 1940s.
