I bought this weight and the style reminded me of Eickholt, but this one is signed on the side Kaig. Any info, I have googled and come up empty handed. thanks, Terry

Thank you so much Connie. I think you nailed it. In the signature the r looks like an i without the dot. Thats what threw me, but Karg certainly has weights that look very similar to mine. Thanks again Terry
