This is a trio of Sheffield made MoP Smoker's knives. The first is made by Christopher Johnson & co with a built in cigar cutter. The second is made by Prescott and Milner. The third by Joseph Westby. The latter two have cigar forks. The last had a tamper disk on a swivel but unfortunately it is missing.

Many of the early cutlers made surgical instruments with the same level of skill. I'd venture to say that a knife like these was expensive. Of course, not just anyone could afford a cigar either. 

Great photography smiling-knife. Thanks

Thanks for the replies and you're welcome. Yes... I believe these were luxury items in their day. The middle knife has a fancy back spring supporting the scissors.

Alex,

You should click on Smiling Knives name. He has an email address in his bio you can get ahold of him that way. I haven't seen him check in here for awhile. I belive he lives in England.
