Show off your Maher and Grosh knives

William H. Maher and Emil Grosh started the Maher & Grosh Wholesale Cutlery Co. in 1877 with a goal to sell high quality US manufactured cutlery globally. The original business dissolved in 1988, but the brand has since been resurrected.

Hmm, no replies on manufacturer of above ivory M&G. Still time to post !
Here is another M&G i just found in my own house, a 3 5/8" Sleeveboard Whittler with ebony handles, amazingly dark and dense. Blades look full to me. It is a lovely knife, solid & smooth as the day it got adopted (purchased).
So far i have not met a M&G knife that i didn't like.

Here is another M&G i just found, 3 7/8" 'Trapper Jack' is what i call it but might not be the correct name. Well used but still very attractive in part due to the large swage on both sides of clip blade.
I think this would be an excellent one to reproduce. What do you think ?

Great name ! Stay true for a Total Home Run, beginning with the name: "Announcing: El Diablo", maybe even one pimped up with fine bluish mammoth.
I'm just getting carried away. It's in my hand now, nice pattern.
