Re: Rostfrei Import tang stamp and 1 on back tang

...I'm a bit confused about "where it was found". As I can only imagine, these knives end up all over the world. True but if you start seeing half a dozen or a dozen all come from the same place...just like if you lived outside of the USA and you started finding Latamas over and over in the USA, yo...

You’d have to be happy between $100-$200 depending on the blade if it’s minty or not.

Re: Rostfrei Import tang stamp and 1 on back tang

No, the Ern models. The US was Germany's biggest market from 1950-1975. It makes sense they would be marked in English. It would be interesting to get to the bottom of it. Those marked C Jul Herbertz Import are seen on the Trapdoor models (and stilettos) which are early 1960s so they definitely wer...
