Joseph Elliot Tang ?
Had the good fortune to pick up a 5/8 m/l with barber's notch Joseph Elliot for restoration at an antique shop. Sorry, no photos - don't have that technology. The scales (original, I'm sure) are shot, but a little sanding proves the blade to be in pretty good condition. I find the tang to be very short on this. It doesn't appear to have been altered or ground down. Is this par for the course with this brand?
