    here are a few more sleeveboard images, a Cattaraugus, funny how short the master blade is on some of these old ones.

    This seems to be a bit of a variation of patterns, A sleeveboard congress pen, I guess. Old slip joints are an extremely complex study. The more I learn the less I feel I know.:eek:

    Best regards

    I understand a congress has an arched back. I would call your knife a 4-blade sleeveboard pen, Robin. But I am certainly not the last word.

    Here are a few sleeveboards, new and old

    Teardrops and regular jacks are not the same. Regular (or swell-end) jacks have straight sides to the handle, while teardrops swell outward toward the head. The sides of a teardrop jack are concave in profile.

    A Whaler is a Swell Center Sunfish. I believe the original was designed by Charlie Platts in the 1880's.
