    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
