This adorable antique shoe knife dates from between 1900-1930 when the star brand shoe company would give these little knife fobs out to dealers or as a spiff with purchase. They were made by the Roberts, Johnson and Rand shoe company, St, Louis MO. I have only ever found one of these with the fob loop still attached in the last 10 years of collecting vintage knives. The shoe is made from solid brass and is in amazing vintage condition considering it’s age. The brass has a nice mellow gold hue and the blade is still sharp and functional. It measures about 2 inches long when closed and it opens and closes tightly so there’s no worry about it accidentally coming open while wearing it. Comes on a sturdy yet delicate 30 inch gold filled chain with crystal dangle detail. No clasp. You will be the only person in town wearing this for sure!
