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.
Normally I don't buy broken knives but I thought this old 3 blade Maher&Grosh has such great looks that I could not resist. Teardrop with spey, spear and hawkbill blades, the spring is broken on the spey. Would love to find one of these is very good condition but this one will do for now. Roger, do you know what this one is called, I would think something like Farmers Friend.
Here you are John. From catalog 32 ca.1910.It was called "Maher's Common Sense Knife ".They carried the pattern for many years. They had another 3 blade utility with a large sheepsfoot instead of the hawksbill and called it "The Mechanics Own".
