Item D10 - Meriden (CT) Pattern Makers Draw Shave

This small draw knife with 4” blade and splayed handles has long been popular as a tool to do careful shaving of small objects (instruments, tools, etc).  It has been reported has having been marked by several makers, but most of those have pointed back to Sargent, in New Haven.  This example conforms to the usual one, but the “maker’s” name is one that I’ve not seen before.  It is Crescent Co” of Meriden, Conn. USA.  The “C”s in Crescent Co. are all in the shape of “Crescent” moons.  It is a distinctive mark, but one not listed in the EAIA Dat.  Nor is there any other mention of this company available to me.  It is a nice small draw shave and should be of interest to collectors of such tools.  Fine
