Username Post: Sheffield knife marked Ebro?        (Topic#904496)

I have a 6inch bowie type blade marked Alfred Williams Sheffield England and EBRO with Maltese Crosses - I'm trying to put a date on it. I'm thinking that it is after 1890 since it is marked with the country of origin presumably for import purposes....marked Ebro so it is likely Kastor made...he worked until the newest it could be is 1920? Any input?

Kastor would be the IMPORTER not the maker....

Alfred Williams is a very common Sheffield maker, according the Levine, active from the late 1890s to 1918 imported by Kastor.

You're hitting a 20 year period on a blade that appears to have been "rehandled." Short of a time machine it's not likely to get much closer than that.
