    They're both post war production pieces, the other one is made under the name of John Nowill & Sons, but both of these makers have existed in name only for a long while, both being produced by up to two or three other companies at the same time! The Nowill one is actually slightly closer to the original design, as the handle on the Rodgers knife is slimmer than originals.

    Both knives are well made, and the balance is pretty good, but neither are worth more than £20-25 tops IMO. So maybe just keep 'em, as already suggested by the majority?

    Many thanks for the comments guys. Maybe I should go with the majority and keep both lol.

    If you had to sell one of them then keep the one in the best condition. Although they are post-WW2, all patterns seem to be less available nowadays and values are increasing. Regards, Clive.
