The Jack Knife from William Whiteley


The Jack of Knives

There’s something about a jack knife. Why do we love them so much and why do we always say yes to having just one more? I mean, how many does one person need? Lean back in your chair my dear unenlightened mates, as need has no place in this discussion. Passion and desire destroy what could otherwise be a reasonable explanation.

Forgiven you’ll be and condolences you’ll earn if you were never given a jack knife when you were still knee high to a duck. And of course, you were unsure of its ability to actually cut things, so you tested it on your finger. Yep, it cuts and the finger bleeds. I did that. And my wife won’t go adventuring without the one her father gave her when she was about 14.

Our Whiteley 3 inch handcrafted, folding, jack knife is made from 440 stainless steel and features an ebony wood curved handle.

Using a higher-grade stainless steel ensures optimum performance and longevity. The Whiteley Jack Knife with its ergonomically shaped ebony handle is ideal and sure to delight your outdoorsmen...the wanderers, the explorers, the hunters and gatherers, the fishermen, and all those that aspire to be such!


  • 440 stainless steel blade
  • Ebony wood curved handle
  • Length fully open: 7.7”
  • Blade length: 3”
  • Presented in corrugated vintage gift box
  • Does not discriminate: Cuts a curious boy’s finger as easily as it does fish and fowl

    The Art of Concealment

    Aside from your decoy rigs, shells and a shotgun that aims right and won’t jam…our Leather Wrapped Marsh Flask is a required essential for complementing a full day on the saltmarsh.

    And as your garvey skims its way home across the bay, the wind in your face, your beverage of choice keeps neatly concealed in this stainless-steel bunker of a flask, with a durable, duck-boat-drab matte finish. And just out of borrowing distance it stays from those pesky companions who never bring anything nice to share. But you, you will be generous, and you will be kind.

    You’ll offer a taste to all, and when they light up with glee, you can say with a smile: “Oh, sorry, it’s all gone...I was just wondering if you wanted some.”

    Bastard! they’ll say.

    Perfect pocket knife

    The knife is very well made and sharp. The sheath that accompanied the knife leaves something to be desired, gut it is a good knife.
