    My pleasure.

    Yours is the so called "third pattern" with makers name on the blade, but without a date.

    Other makers were:


    Aerial Cutlery Manufacturing Co.
    Henry Boker & Co.
    Camillus Cutlery Co.
    W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co.
    Imperial Knife Co.
    Pal Blade Co.
    Kinfolks Inc.
    Robeson Shuredge
    Utica Cutlery Co.

    Cheers, Ade.
