100_7866.JPG 100_7864.JPG 100_7864.JPG Hi 

new to the sight , I aquired a pair of ES 10x25 binocular’s , model number or serial number (not sure ) 504m048 and says Japan , also there is a triangle with a K in it as a hallmark . Pretty heavy for there size , extremely clear pair of binocular’s .

  I would like to find out who made them , any info would be great .

Any pics you can post will be very helpful. 10x35's aren't rare, but aren't abundant either. Are you sure it's an "R" in the triangle?

I would guess:   maybe "triangle-K", for Kama-Ko? 

 

Like the triangle-K on the squarish 7x25s named

Simmons, Tasco, Swift, Bushnell...etc.     

 

Kama-Ko made bins for almost everyone over time.

"ES" would suggest Edmund Scientific. That binocular may be part of an Edmund Scientific Science Kit, or something like that.
