Default Unexpected Running Wolf Sighting

Hi All,

This pair of parallel jaw pliers was covered with rust when I bought it at the flea market. I was rather surprised when the clean-up revealed a running wolf of Passau logo stamped on the grip (wire cutter side). On one side, the stamp around the main pivot point says, "- BERNARD'S - PAT. MAY 6 1890 JULY 19 1892" and on the other side it says, "W SCHOLLHORN CO. NEW HAVEN CONN.". From what I read online, Bernard was a machinist who owned the patent for the plier design and W Schollhorn (founded in 1870) was the company that made it (Schollhorn was eventually bought out by Sargent Tool). Additional patent info: "PAT APR 2-1907 JUNE 17-1913 is stamped on the other grip (in the same location on the grip as the running wolf stamp).
