VOOS with arrow through the name, c. 1919-1981, a trade-mark used by New Haven Hardware Specialty Company - Goins Encyclopedia of Cutlery Markings.

I have a couple of these - and haven't been able to find out anything other than what TJ posted. Seem to be nice quality user type knives - they are commonly listed on e-bay, and seem to go for roughly $15 to $40.

I also saw this listing for a Bingham Knife - looks to be the spitting image of the Voos / New Haven Hdwe knife - listed for $90, although they don't have any takers as yet:

I am assuming New Haven Hdwe made the knives on contract for Bingham? but that is just a guess.

Found this one on the bay and picked it up cheap. Hope it's in as good of shape as the crummy picts make it look. I'll post better picts when I get it.
