A Stanley No. 1299 Utility Knife

Something of an antique -- certainly no longer in production.

I take this one to be from early production of the 1299 knife. It's made of cast iron; later ones were cast from lighter metal.

Inside, of course, is storage space for spare blades.

My cutters drawer is pretty much full, so I'll hang this from a nail on a toolboard -- it certainly lends itself readily to that.
