Name: Single Blade Brass Scarificator
Description: 2” x 9/16” brass scarificator with 0.25” blade, lever cocking mechanism, and side arm release. Cocking mechanism is unusual because it extends at right angles from above the blade. There is nice simple etching on the edges in the front and on the back there is a hallmark of three trees shaped like a crown and the letters c,k,w. This has a leather covered wooden case.
