Has anyone heard of Merident Cutlery Company? I own 2 of
these knives with the logo on the blade. They look like old
table knives. Cleaning house and didn't know if I should
hang on to them or not.
Also have a J.Ward knife. J.Ward marked on the blade,with
Atlas Works under the name. Similiar the the Merident knives.

According to LG4, Meriden Cutlery Co stamp was used from 1855 to about 1925. I'd hang onto them (or you could always send them to me!). J Ward started in the 1880s, but I am not sure when they stopped production.

J WARD was the budget brand of J RUSSELL & Co.

The brand is documented in the 1880s and 1890s. I don't know how much before or after that it was used. Almost certainly out of use by WW-I,probably earlier.

Here is the US ARMY mess kit knife and fork of the 1890s. J. WARD/ RIVERSIDE, MASS brand (ATLAS WORKS is the more usual WARD stamping). Cast pewter rim handle patented December 19, 1892.

Thank you for your reply! The answers I was looking for were
in Lv-4 as usual. With the camera I have , I couldn't post a picture for you. Sorry. All three have wooden handles like the military cutlery on Page 452 of #4. Think I will
hang onto them. I like the old stuff!! Thank you for your reply!!
