Picked this working Knapp toaster up at a flea market for 2 bucks.I will give it a try to refurbish it. Is this the same knapp company?

Yes, its the same company, they made toasters, waffle irons, toaster ovens, stoves, refrigerators, fans, heaters, and more. 
I used to have an old "Lady Dover" Waffle Iron that was made by Knapp-Monarch in the 1940s.

see Picture Below.

Because by the mid 1950s they started using rubber cord sets on toasters. I have a 1951 Sunbeam T-20A toaster that had it's original black and red checkered cloth cord set on it.

I saw a Knapp Monarch-labeled appliance (a percolator if I remember correctly) at the Vermont Country Store a couple years ago, so someone is still using the name and a logo similar to the above. They also had a lot of old fans as decor around the place.
