The pile side stamp reads:

Thanks in advance.

We have quite a few members from that area. I'm sure someone will be here to help you shortly. How's the fit and finish on it? What's the grind on the blade?

Nice one  :tu: Not quite as fancy as some of the collection pieces they've made in the past though ...  :whistle:



Here's some history on Joseph Rodgers ... they've been around a while  ;)

As for the knife itself, the Sheffield cutlers didn't tend to have specific models with fixed names the way we have come to expect from Victorinox and Wenger. They just produced a lot of options and you picked what you wanted. I have a similar knife without the backspring tools, and in use it should serve you well .... providing you don't try to use the Phillips driver which will probably cam out of every screw you try it in unfortunately ::)

Thanks for the information gentlemen. The fit and finish seem to be on par with Victorinox. The blade appears to be sabre ground. Can anyone tell me the hallmarks. It's also missing the tweezers. I hope the sak ones will fit. According to Ebay it's not  very valuable but since it was a thoughtful gift the intrinsic value is priceless.

*Edit: The star and  cross are quality assurance marks. Thank you for the link 50ft.

Hello friend. This knife model is called "The Regimentals R-70." It is an old model, from the end of World War II. Congratulations on your beautiful piece, highly collectible. I have the same folding, here is it:  :climber:

Yes, I saw that one in your display. Wish that Vic would make a model like it with both the backlayered corkscrew AND phillips.

yes, I agree. The Vic could even have a line like you said. I love the Vic, but I confess I have a soft spot for Wenger  ;)
