I looked at your photos, and it appears to be either a bedspread or a table cloth in the first, mattress ticking in the second.
Oh wait... yes! There is a knife hiding on it.
It is a barehead sleeveboard jack.
And with that extra thick spear blade, it is a "stabber jack," a budget version of the folding dirk.
Is it a barlow knife? Sort of...
It is a barehead jack with long bolsters, which kind of define a barlow.
But it is higher grade than most barlows, with ebony handles and a fancy shield.
Of course some knife companies made even fancier barlows with stag, or even pearl.
Russell made some that were sleeveboard shaped, before WWI
Later Utica/Kutmaster barlows are sleeveboard shaped. Made after c1938. Still made, I think.
I can't see the tang stamp.
But I am pretty sure it was made before, during, or after 1902.
If it is marked WALDEN KNIFE CO., it was probably before.
Simmons Hdwe bought Walden then. I don't know if they kept using the Walden Knife Co brand.
They COULD HAVE, since they owned it, but I doubt they did. Depends what their customers wanted to buy.
