Hi Steve,
I'm in need of proving to myself and others that this Coachman's knife is made By W. Butcher. Can you possibly post a photo, or better yet possibly supply me with a photo of the W. Butcher mark on the knife. The photo just needs to be able to show it clearly comes from the knife in the photos.
Thanks very much.
