    I just got this Genco from ebay and another exactly like it in looks and condition.I will have them re-scaled and sharpened.I'm no expert but they look as though they had a very nice edge on them at one time here's hoping I'm right.These will be my first restores.this one only cost me £12 & the other,£15 smashing!

    Here's a couple of pics of a Genco Jessop. I didn't see it in the Genco list so I though there might be interest. It's in the pic from JrJoeD's post above in the upper right.

    Yir dam tootin there bro .
    I didn't actually work that out until about 3 years ago , all I bought was Geneva Cutlery Corporation. I let literally hundreds of Genco's go ..
    Then summit clicked Geneva Cutlery Corps' an abbreviation !!!! the old Jagermeister kicked in and then it hit me Gen'Co .. well FMG what a tit I felt ! the effin heavens opened up ..the clouds parted ande a light shown down on my pc screen , just as I was about to close a window on an Ebay auction on a Genco .. the rest is history and hangovers .
    Cha where aboots are you in Scotland ? I know a couple of members from Scotland .

    cheers Gee
