Thanks everybody for the comments. Nice to see you here Duncan.
Treefarmer the etch was for maher & grosh, I assume so they could market the knife under their line. I believe maher & grosh were always contract made knives but I could be wrong. Either way schrade made some knives for them, either etched, stamped or both. I know very little about maher & grosh so that's about all I can tell you, I bought the knife because I like old bone schrades and cattle knives.
