I have a sword marked AMES MFG. CO. Cabotville 1850 on one side and A.D.K. on the other side. It is also marked A.D.K. and J.W.R. on the pommel. My question is who were the inspectors and why in the first inch or so of the blade is there grind or polishing marks perpendicular to the blade? I have seen these buffed or grind marks in photo's on several other swords of this same model. The sword is in excellent condition with a bright finish to the blade, the grip is in excellent condition, as is the leather washer.
