JOSEPH RODGERS Statuette. Statue is of Vulcan holding the Rodgers star and maltese cross (in the original, somewhere back down the line the maltese cross was broken and is now missing.) with a hammer in the other hand. mounted on a wood base. 7 1/2'', The significance of this cannot be overstated. The only way to receive one of these was to work for Joseph Rodgers Cutlers for 50 years. (During a time when the average lifespan of a cutler was less than 50 years). I have only seen two in my years in knives. This is one of those two. Pictured in the opening pages of ''Sheffield Exhibition Knives''
