      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.

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

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

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