Hello Rodgers Fans,
I picked up something historical on the Bay last night. Didn't even realize how historical it is untill I started researching it today. One blade appears to be broken off ? I guess?
but none the less, it's a cool find to me.
The tang stamp seems
to read: "Rodgers Cutlers to His Majesty"
Apperently, as you can read, it was made for PINCHIN JOHNSON & Co.
One side reads:
PINCHIN, JOHNSON & Co., LD
GENERAL BUILDINGS, ALDWYCH, LONDON.W.C.2
The other side reads:
MAKERS OF FINE VARNISHES
COLORS, PAINTS & ENAMELS
"ALDWYCH" is a street name in London.

Pinchin & Johnson Co. or Pinchin Johnson & Associates Ltd. was founded in 1834, sold to Courtaulds in 1960 and merged with International Paint in 1968. So the knife must have been produced before 1968. I'm still trying to find out more about this knife so if anyone can add to my knowledge please do so.
Here are 3 pictures from the seller. I will try to clean it & post more pictures of it once I have it. Enjoy the pictures & thanks for any information you wish to share.
And as always, if I ever post a knife someone is crazy about, just ask me, I'm easy going & we can probably work out a trade of some kind.
I enjoy helping where I can.
