Great little knife, found this...
Carl Friedrich ERN, Solingen-Wald.
The company was founded in 1873, registrated December, 4 1874. Located at Solingen-Wald in 1922 and at Kanalstrasse 43 in 1939. Carl Friedrich Ern (1850-1924) Carl Friedrich Ern family were razor-grinders (the Wupper grinders, after Wuppertal), and he took over his fathers company - they honed razors for other firms (in 1860 Nathaniel Ern only ground and honed razors for Henckels), but soon began to make their own razors. Nathaniel taught his son Carl to do the job - at that time there were 20 workers and seven masters. Singing and talking were forbidden, drinking never allowed. The company moved to Wald (to Wittekulle), an outlying district of Solingen, in 1876. In 1893 they introduced the 'Hexe' machine to hollow-grind razors, said to be a benefit to all razor makers. Tang stamp matches one he used but I can not figure out what the RC means. I think it is post WW2 but not sure. Not allot of info out there on this knife. Mostly about razors. Any help will be great!
