Herewith (good word) photograph of the knife from a chatelaine (?) with the blades open. The upper blade would be the pen knife, for reshaping a quill pen, and the lower blade a fruit knife for peeling pears, peaches, nectarines, etc. Altogether a useful little item for a lady. The knife is  shown  in  the blog entry for Friday, 13th January, 2017.

Yes, Mike, Herewith is a good word ~ He was a good bloke too, younger brother of that other local character, Hereward the Wake ~ probably a distant cousin of the Withalls and the Heretofores ~ not to mention great aunt Daisy and her Wakefield clan.
