This slipjoint is from Rampur, India, home of the infamous Rampuri chaku switchblades. This one is a simple folder, however, and would make a great EDC or collectible! It measures in at 21 cm long.

The blade was ground from carbon steel. There is some pitting visible on the blade, and unfortunately the blade and backspring don't line up quite right on this knife, so I've inserted a coin between the scale and the backspring to help keep the blade and backspring aligned.

The handle is also carbon steel and hand chased with floral motifs and a little rat. It is marked "RAT BRAND." These folders were once ubiquitous throughout India, but are now much less commonly found due to the availabilty of cheap Chinese knives. Notice the handle looks like a leg with a boot and there is an integral guard too.

You can see the coin I used as a shim here.
