German Bull Brand?

Postby Paladin » Tue Mar 13, 2018 7:18 pm

Guys,
I an a recent batch of knives I got this knife and it is stamped German Bull Brand. I have nothing on it and my usual books turn up nothing.
Anyone familiar with it? As always, any info is appreciated.

99% sure it's another China knife from SMKW.

Thanks, guys. It sure fooled me. Somehow I sorta associated it with Schmidt & Zigler and their 'running bull' or El Toro stamp and logo.

The Schmidt and Ziegler knives are fine knives and you don't see them much anymore. Like you Ray, those are the ones that I commonly call a German Bull.
