Maher & Grosh Toledo Knife 5 1/2" Lock Back Blade Green Bone Hunter No Reserve For Sale

Maher & Grosh Toledo Knife 5 1/2

This knife was manufactured by Maher & Grosh out of Toledo Ohio. This firm is considered the oldest knife making firm in the US. They set up shop in 1877 and believe it or not just recently stopped selling knives. I'm not exactly sure of the age of this knife but I'm certain it was before 1963 because they moved their shop from Toledo OH. to Clyde OH. that year. My personal guess would be between 1930-1942 because this was a popular time for big bone hunters. I loved collecting the old bone hunters because of the quality of the workmanship. This was the only one of it's kind that I ever came across from Maher so I snapped up on it. It has seen a lot of use but if a knife could tell a story I bet this one would be grand! The reason why I say that is because of the shape the handles are in and the amount of use it has seen. I know the owner of this probably took it everywhere and treated it like a member of his or her family. I bet it was the only knife they ever owned and they bragged about it's durability. Call me crazy but this knife speaks to me. Straight out of America's heartland. I love this old knife and you will to. It measures 9 3/4" opened. She's a big one... Handles are in excellent shape...green bone with a very small chip. Honestly it might not even be a chip but I'm playing it safe. It's hard to tell. Blade has slight wobble.She's been sharpened and has scratches and patina. Nickel bolsters,brass pins and liners.Stamp say's Maher & Grosh over Toledo. It's a lock back with the release on the spring. I think that's it. so have fun offerding. I know whoever gets it will love it. Don't forget to reach out with any questions.....

Thanks to the savvy knife collector who reminded me that Maher & Grosh were the oldest knife mail order Co. in the USA. Their knives were made by Queen Schrade and Miller and stamped with their name. MAHER & GROSH. Also the stamp has the letter O after Toledo on the tang. Thanks
