TOWN MADE SILVER STEEL, Sewell's important Improvement in Penknives.
The usual manner of manufacturing Penknife Blades has long been a subject of complaint. A supposed improvement, which consisted of making the marked side of the Blade concave, and the other convex, was some years ago introduced; but from a conviction of its inutility, is now discontinued. It removed one ground of complaint, but substituted another, and the Penknife now commonly in use has all its original defects about it. The edge is made too steep, and the angle too obtuse ; the consequence is, the edge in catting is sometimes unmanageable, and driven into the quill nearly across. This inconvenience almost every person in the habit of making Pens, has frequently experienced. To obviate this entirely, John Sewell, 49, Fore Street, London, has introduced a Penknife Blade, manufactured entirely on a New Principle: the line of the edge being parallel with the side of the Blade, forms a very acute angle; the instrument, therefore, even in inexperienced hands, may be easily governed; no cutting, but what is intended, can take place, and the Pen is formed with the greatest nicety and the utmost facility. The Blade of this Penknife is beautiful in workmanship, and the Manufacturer can recommend it with confidence, as superior to any article previously introduced into this branch of Cutlery. Also it may be used with the right or left hand.
N.B. Steel Pens on an Improved Principle.
