MATCHING PAIR OF UNUSED SCAGEL UTILITY KNIVES. This pair is from the Armand Durham collection and was never used. Matching pairs of Scagel knives are exceedingly rare, especially when they have never been used. Scagel made this pair for Armand and Margaret Durham in 1935, and like all of the knives Armand received from Scagel, they were put away and never used. The overall length is 12″, and the blade length is 7″. It has only the Kris mark, which is well-stamped. It has stag slab handles with 2 rivets, which are in mint condition, with no scratches, chips, or cracks. This pair is pictured in Scagel Handmade by James R. Lucie on page 153, in the lower right corner. PROVENANCE: Dr. Jim Lucie Collection. CONDITION: New, unused condition. They have all of the original Scagel grind lines showing. There are a few hazy-appearing storage marks on the blades, which prevent them from being classified as “mint”. Near mint is the appropriate term. 4-45559 JL2 (11,000-16,000)
