Rome K/G Blades


Recommended Posts

Military called 'em "Rome Plows".  Some folks call 'em "Shear Blades".  We called 'em "Cutter Blades" (or "K/G Cutters" to differentiate them from "Vee Cutters").

I sure wish we'd had camera phones back then!

Always wondered what the "K/G" designation meant.  Nobody knew back then.  Even Rome Plow Company did not know recently.  But, they DID know the letters stood for the names of the inventors.  That gave me somewhere to start.

The "K" was for Kissner, and the "G" was for Green.  K/G = Kissner/Green.  Mr. Kissner's son and Mr. Green's daughter were married, if I am tracing their names correctly.

Mr. Kissner (the father), Mr. Kissner (the son), and Mr. Green (the in-law) held the early patents on the shear blade.  Apparently, the design was so successful that the Rome Plow Company bought the rights to it.

So, now I know...
