Here's my sole Valley Forge knife, with a pretty decent etch. Newark, NJ's finest. ::super_happy::

That knife should be posted elsewhere on AAPK, Roger.

Beautiful.

Picked up this old Ulster bare end jack, was cleaning gunk off the blade and an etch appeared. It has "something Steel Fully Guaranteed". Anyone got any idea what is before Steel? Searched this thread and could not come up with another example.

M.S. Young & Co Allentown Pa on a Ka-Bar fish knife. They were a hardware store that started in the mid 1800's and closed in 1964.

Does this help anyone? Could it be, "Finest?"

Sorry JohnR, the last two letters before "STEEL" look like EP or ER.
