Unrecognized tang stamp

Post by Newbie1945 » Fri May 13, 2022 10:56 pm

Hello, I am certain that I have been looking in all the wrong places. I have a large two bladed jack knife that has a shield shaped stamp on each tang, there is no text or letters and I am unable to identify it. Can someone please help me out?

Very unusual stamp that I have never seen before. Trying to figure out what the pictograph represents. Almost look like a face with eyes, a vessel of some type or even military insignia. Can't really make out what the little doodle is at the bottom of the stamp. This is the kind of mystery that member Miller Bro's can often decipher. Maybe he'll look in.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

I can not help on identifying the stamp but the top 2 symbols remind me of hand harvested wheat bundles

Hiya David, I really apologize for the lack of clarity on that tang stamp. A third of the stamp is covered up by the handles. It is a shield .the shield is bisected by a single chevron then in each section stands ( as you correctly observed, high marks there !) A sheave of wheat .the same goes for the pen blade.Thanks for the reply.

Looks like a nice knife. Bone?
Never understand how someone or some firm can produce something nice and not advertise the maker??? J.O'.
