Dimitri and Lyle,
I appreciate the comments and I meant to include these photos of the "2nd" knife earlier, but I got caught up in some other issues. Here is a photo of the entire knife and a specific photo of the flaw I mentioned before.

Here is a slightly different (Gothic font?) Keen Kutter etch on a 2 3/4" pearl knife with a EC SIMMONS ST> LOUIS tang stamp.

Here is the first Kingston with an etch I have ever seen (actually it may be the first mint Kingston I have ever seen). Not a high dollar knife, but unique.

Nice knives, Dan. ::tu::
Just wondering, who made the knife from Germany and how long is it?
Thanks.
