Vintage Buttonhole Knife with Plastic Handle
Vintage buttonhole knife, with plastic handle, which is used, in conjunction with a block of wood to cut out buttonholes. The buttonhole is positioned over the block of wood, the knife is placed where the cut is to be made and hit on the top wit the hand, or with a small mallet if you prefer. These make a very neat cut.
This one has its original plastic safety cover and seems to be as sharp as new and has probably had little or no use.
