I have my Great Grandpa's butcher knife, I don't think it's a quality knife but it is special to me.

He was a foreman for the railroad in Montana, and maybe he was hunting buffalo, and needed a big knife.  ;)

Nice knife.  Any markings on it?

If you click in the image, you can see it's stamped "Russell Green River Works" and the handle is stamped GREEN RIVER.
