Yes Jos. Rodgers & Sons made some of the finest knives ever made right up to this day. About 1850 to 1920 was the time period of most of their "Exhibition" knives. By WW II things had changed but up until then, buying a Jos Rodgers & Sons knife was getting the best knife anywhere on the planet.
"Sheffield Exhibition Knives" is a wonderful book to see these best of the best knives. You can buy a new copy on ebay for ~ $40.
Those both are very good knives that you show. I am a little jealous.
