Lightning Peach Parer

Goodell & Company modifed the fork mechanism to accomodate peach pits. This parer could be used to pare apples or firm peaches for canning or drying. It is interesting that this parer is a mirror image of the regular Lightning, with the paring arm positioned on the opposite side. Different versions of the spring action peach accomodating fork were made.
