No problem Mike, did not expect to get it for my high bid but had to try, figured a knowledgable collector would know how rare and desirable it was, congratulations on acquiring such a great rare knife!

Here is a Jos. Rodgers 'His ? Majesty' Champagne pattern knife with tortoise celluloid handles (i think ?, no sign of off gassing) and a sterling silver master blade. The "His" or "Her" Majesty is hidden by the handles end, but if i am correct that hallmark is 1930 then it is "His Majesty" What is a bit odd is that J.R. began using stainless steel in the early 1920's (an 'early adopter') and this knife was made in 1930. By that time Jos. Rodgers had made thousands of stainless blades yet they stuck with tradition and used silver for the master.
I bought it for the name on the shield 'Johnnie Walker', on a Champagne pattern !
I know, handle end pieces missing.

And here is another Jos. Rodgers from early 1900's (up to 1937 ?), a 4 blade senator, 3 1/4", half sunk joints and stag handles.
