Fuller Brush Man

This is either a ceremonial dagger awarded to Fuller Brush Men who had completed their training, or a novelty letter opener intended to be given to good customers.

It belonged to my late mother-in-law, who used to buy regularly from the Fuller Brush Man.  From everything I've heard, their brushes were excellent.

While the company was American, its founder, Albert C. Fuller, hailed from Nova Scotia.
