Barry, here is some basic info I captured at the AG Russell site
Harry Morseth began making knives by hand around 1925 using A-2 tool steel that he shaped, ground and heat-treated himself. Shortly after World War II he made a trip to his father's native Norway and bought a thousand rough ground, laminated blades. Harry finish ground those blades and turned them into handmade knives. Those blades were heat-treated to 60+ Rc. and they held an edge to such a remarkable degree that Harry was able to build a reputation that kept he and his wife (she laced the sheaths) busy until their deaths in old age
Now there were actually 2 of them and you can see that info here
Thanks. I looked at a lot of the general info on the maker. I was hoping someone could tell me what generation of the history this particular knife came from. Original? His son? It looks like the modern knives are dated, so I don’t think it’s exntly made. I didn’t know if this particular style was made in a certain time period or what.
Awesome find !
The handle material is bone.
AG Russell may be able to tell you if it was produced by Morseth or son. The issue lies in the fact that MANY were sold off as kits and could have been put together by anyone
