    I came across tnis pocket knife recently and Imtotally confused. After extensive searches I can't seem to find anything like it. I thought maybe for leathetwork but no confirmation. The white extension seems to be bone. It does not fold. I hope I can post a picture... hmmm?

    A Horticulturist's budding/grafting knife.

    If you want to win an argument, it is best to stick to the truth.....or,at least, provable untruths.

    Thank you... It's been driving me crazy.

    I'll look at it again but I believe it is fixed into position. I'll do a little research to learn all I can but I'm guessing it's nothing too special and I'll be going back to work again tomorrow. Can you elaborate a little more on how it's used? Thanks again in advance.

    Welcome to KnifeForums.
    Here’s probably more than you want to know from Levine’s Guide to Knives.
    Your knife is a gunstock pattern with a fixed (not folding) spud as described in the last paragraph.

    (Click to enlarge).

    I guess what made me think it was a folder was the kick on the tang and the nail nick.
    Of course there is no reason the blade couldn't be from stock and adapted to a FB.

    It's a folder by nature. You can see the back spring is raised slightly. Try a little penetrating oil.
