Antique Sporting Pen Knife, Football, Tennis.
A folding sporting penknife with unoxydable bronze handle. A good traditional French manufactured knife by Coursolle, their trademark logo being 'adjustable wrenches'. The penknife comprises of one large blade, one small blade, a corkscrew and a bradawl. On one side of the handle in raised relief is a football player (goal keeper) and a tennis player on the other, also on both sides in raised relief are the words 'DEPOSE'. One blade is 3 inches long and the other 1 ¾ inches, the long blade with the tool trademark logo. The spring mechanism is still stiff on this knife but usable, should ease with use.
