Barteaux

In 1939 Joseph Gerber (advertising agency owner) had custom knife maker David Murphy make 24 sets of carving knife for some of his select customers. Catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch saw them and was so impressed with the quality of the knives they wanted to sell them. Thus was born Gerber Legendary Blades.

Hey guys, new here. Wondering if I can hop on this thread about a barteuax knife I picked up at a yard sale. Or do I need to find something in fixed blades. Thanks

Absolutely, join on in. Welcome aboard! ::welcome::
We're really not very formal around here. And we love pictures of knives! I've had two or three Barteaux machetes but none of their knives, although one of the ones MUD post it looks familiar.

Gerber, Murphy & Barteaux are sort of connected. I haven't seen any connection from Aycock to Murphy or Barteaux, or even Gerber for that matter but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Much appreciated and thanks for the welcome! Here's some pics. Seems to be factory edge, not a scratch on her.

Nice looking knife.
Is there a date engraved on the handle?
I can't quite make it out, what does the engraving say?
