Well NOT in that way. Had a bad day at work and was outside relaxing with a cold one when he pulled up with not one BUT TWO of my ebay wins.

First is a WWII Imperial easy-opener,bone scales with brass (early war) liners.
A little oil and crud removal and the blade snap moves the knife in your hand.:) It will be joining my vintage knife carry rotation.

Next is a little Imperial tuxedo pen.Cracked Ice scales with stainless blades. An impulse cheap buy that will see very lite duty as a dress-up knife. 50's to early 60's vintage (I think)

Very Nice!

I remember the Tuxedo, both ladies and gents carried it.
I even carried one a Mentor let me use.
I was only so tall, in my suit with suspenders, a real tie and had a date with a pretty Army Nurse.
I had to use manners and everything for this date. *grin*

Treat the celluloid scales nicely on your little tuxedo.
