    Stamped on ricasso: H (Elaborate Brand) S / H. Schurhoff & Co. / Cheffield (sic).

    Blade length: 6.90"
    Max Blade Width: 1.04"
    Max Blade Thickness: 0.13"
    Overall Length: 11.10"
    Guard: German Silver
    Grips: Tan Stag

    Found reprint of an old 1842 trade catalog for "H. Schurhoff and Company, German exportors of weapons, tools, iron, steel, brass-ware, and more for export to North and South America, East and West Indies". The reprint contains over 500 drawings. This firm was located at Altona, Germany. Other examples of H. Schurhoff & Co. knives have Sheffield" spelled correctly. The company registered trade marks with Great Britain Patent Office in 1879.


    Pictured with original leather sheath.

    Perhaps someone can recognize the type of animal that produces this light tan colored stag?

    Stamped on ricasso: M*B / Moulson / Brothers

    Blade length: 5.90"
    Max Blade Width: 1.01"
    Max Blade Thickness: 0.15"
    Overall Length: 10.00"
    Guard: German Silver
    Grips: Dark Brown Stag

    Moulson began in the 1820's as a maker of saws, joiners tools, & cutlery. By the 1830's was based in Union Works, Division St., Sheffield, England. Thomas and John Moulson appear to have been the original brothers involved, though by 1850 other members of the family were active. Moulson Bros also had an office on Pearl St, New York, by 1850. Several original Moulson partners died in the early 1860's. The firm ceased to exist by 1889.

    Nice looking early knife! I see that an old catalog is in the holdings of the Sheffield City Archives, as below:
