Here's a somewhat small image of the Xacto #1 knife from the 1930s....very similar in look to the knife in that set mentioned above.

Apparently from 1917 to 1930 Xacto was focused on Hypodermic devices.
The company did not produce interchangeable blade hobby knives until 1930.
Hopefully some pre-war literature will turn up.

The two #89 sets that Sue put up on ebay for $289.99 and 299.99 are no longer on ebay.
I think she pulled them off. I don't show them as sold. I can understand $229 maybe but not over $300 with shipping. Just too steep.
