Campbell 3-1/4" Beavertail Slick
c.1890 ~ EXTREMELY RARE & VG

This is one of the finest slicks that I have had the good forturne to ever find. Laminated, bevel back, length, socket to edge: 15-7/8". The blade is thin, for exact paring and cranked slightly at the socket, typical of a shipwright's slick. Marked: CAMPBELL, ST. JOHNS, N.B. + Triple XXX marks and image of a Camel. Small hairline 1/2" closed crack in lamination on left front side, behind edge.  Rear of  ball handle chipped on lower side. Honed razor sharp.
