I just received an old pre-WWII knife made by E. Bruckmann. I couldn't find out much about the company or the knife itself, except that A.G. Russell acquired a lot quantity of E. Bruckmann in the 70s. In a 2002 post here on BladeForums Russell said he didn't think they made any knives after the mid-30s. The one I have looks unused, so it is probably from the "new old stock" that Russell purchased and someone bought from him at some point. It is well made and probably the coolest knife I now own--definitely the oldest! The jigging is amazing. The fit and finish are solid. The pulls and action are outstanding. The punch is really interesting. The blade appears to be convex ground. I don't know why the screwdriver has the cut outs, but perhaps someone here knows? I'm really stoked to have this one in my collection!
