    I was wondering about this old hunting knife that I have had for years. It has Gambill made in Solingen Germany on the tang stamp and has a blood groove in the blade. It originally had a leather stack handle and alluminum pomell. I replaced it with some Brazillian wood and a stainless acorn nut. I like the old carbon blades and was just wondering about the history of Gambill and when it might have been made.The pic isn't very good , But it gives a general idea. Thanks for any info--C.L.

        In response to seaplane

    I have never seen that brand. But there were dozens (if not hundreds) of contract brands applied to Solingen-made knives in the 1950s and 1960s. Many of them have not been identified.
