    F. S. SIEGEL KENTUCKY GAMBLER'S PUSH KNIFE IN ORIGINAL SILVER SCABBARD. ca. 1850 F. S - Siegel was a maker of fine cutlery from Louisville, Kentucky who produced beautiful gentlemen's push knives and other fine knives. This push knife measures 6 1/2" overall and has a 4" blade stamped 'F. S. Siegel, Lou. KY' at the ricasso. The 3 1/2" wide rosewood grips fit the hand perfectly and make this an attractive knife, especially with the silver sheath. The sheath has an attractive spearpoint tip and a frog in the shape of a leaf on the reverse. The knife fits into the sheath perfectly making this an excellent example of the gentleman's push knife, suitable for the gambler as a second defense.
    A second surgical knife accompanying this lot for reference is a 10", ebony-handled surgical knife with the Siegel name stamped halfway down the bladeThe heavy, checkered grips give this knife the attractive appearance and accentuate the shiny blade which is in excellent condition. From The William Turner Collection.
