Barr Bros. Fighter Oakland CA WWII

Post by scagel »

Bought years ago at a gun show. I have never seen another but am sure they are around. They started in Oregon in the 1890's and then migrated down the coast to CA where they opened shop in Oakland and sold these knives to our troops headed for the Pacific Theater. They were still in business in the 80's, making kitchen utensils as the last pic shows.
