Grandad’s old folding knife - tang stamp looks like Gremlin

Post by Pepe101 » Wed Nov 17, 2021 7:39 pm

Hi,

Cleaned my grandparents house a while ago and came across some knifes. Already sold some, but some keep me tangled, like this one, since I can’t quite figure out their heritage. Curious nature over here. Not at all my area of expertise.

The tang stamp looks like a Gremlin in my opinion. Already tried several search options and Google image, unfortunately without any pleasing results.

Does anyone by any chance know what the stamp means?
Thanks!

Looks like Yoda, Pepe101. Someone will be along with better information, but ::welcome:: to AAPK!

I think it is a fox. Voss cutlery. Are there any stamps on the other blades?

I think Wayne is right--Gustav Voss. Look at this page for a number of German maker marks--Voss is there.

Hi all,

Thanks for all the help!
Gremlin mystery solved :D

Unfortunately there are no other references on the knife.
Which makes it hard to determine the age.

Kind regards,
Kristina
