This appears to be a VERY early Xacto knife set. It is (was) a three knife set, but the handles (one is missing) appear to have some type of paint finish on them.

Also, the blades under the top lid are held in by slots in a strip of wood. Lastly, the flyer included with the set shows the company names as “Xacto Crescent Products Company”, which I think was their original and ‘founding’ name.

This set may be from the very early 40s, possibly very late 30s.

I have a 3 knife set nearly that old, but does not have the painted handle knives.
Slotted top for the blades, and it is the "angle type" box.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
