Classic Blade Crest:
In 1876, the Blade seal was presented by the Spanish Ambassador Señor Antonio Mantilla. The presentation at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition on behalf of the people of Toledo, Spain was to David Ross Locke, famous editor of The Blade and better known under his pseudonym as Petroleum V. Nasby. This was in recognition of the naming of Toledo, Ohio, after the old world city and the use of its best known product, fine Toledo steel blades, in naming The Blade newspaper.
