Thank you for sharing a piece of history that I had no clue about.

It was in the April 2016 Knife Magazine on a time line of Maher & Grosh. Some of the old catalogs/ads mentioned that Jack London was a customer.

It would have been very interesting to see the list of knives and prices paid. I had never read that his yacht was named the Snark. I guess that London liked the poem Hunting of the Snark.
