Bill, love that one. I have a fondness for these Russell’s. I don’t have any this old. This motivates me to keep looking for them. That’s a beauty.

Thanks Joe it’s my first one with that tang stamp. Thanks Mark, I’m not really sure of its age? I have a straight line Russell jack and a Barlow with the straight line markings. Thanks for your comments.

Bill that's a great knife! ::tu:: I got an old ebony cattle knif with that same stamp. All three blades stamped. I'm not sure how to date these but I'm guessing they are pretty old, pre WWII anyway.
