Interesting knife with a kind of strange blades. Were those for fruits?
Thank‘s for showing.

Well, i was told that the knife was bought new around 1920 in Amsterdam, so it probably wasn't a fruit knife, as in those days people still used silver bladed knives for that purpose.
At this moment i think that it might be a pen knife, with a longer general purpose blade and a smaller spey blade for erasing ink.
Either that or the spey blade might actually be a very small budding blade for botanical purposes.
