    George Washington.

    1. Revere Ware? I think they used a similar symbol. Might have marketed knives under their name.

      1. Picture?

        I've seen a few of those but never recall a makers name on them.


        1. Never tried this before. This image is what I was thinking of.

            The ones I have seen looked more like the GW off the dollar bill.


          2. found on the sold on ebay by sandhouse 444, no maker listed. Guess it will remain a mystery. Otherwise I got a good deal he sold his for over $15.00 I got mine for 25 cents.
