    I just received this knife from a "lot" that I purchased. I mainly purchased the lot for this knife as I couldn't identify it from the pictures. I know from the tang it is a Grasoli, backside is Rostfrei, but there is very little info online anywhere I can find. Anyone know anything about these? Rough idea of age/date of knife?

    Here are 3 pictures:


    If you need any additional pictures, let me know.

    The style of can opener is usually found on knives from late 19th century through the 1940s.

    Pics of the tang with the stamp in focus and legible would be good.....

    Does anyone know if there is a tang chart for Grasoli? I can't find one.

    It looks like a gentleman's knife, room for engraving, is it silver?

    I don't believe it is silver, it feels and looks like stainless steel.

    Grasoli made nice stuff like scissors, letter openers, shears and the like. I believe "Grasoli" was a mark/trade name and Gebrüder Grah was the company.


    I just happened to look at an old pair of scissors I got from my folks - Grasoli ! Same pattern as above, but no gold.
