Welcome Home

Any other vintage collectors of Parkers, American Blade, Taylor, United Boker, Frost, or STAR brands out there? 

Am far from an expert on these brands, but I do own a few!  I typically have gone "straight to the horses mouth", with many of my questions answered by Buzz Parker.  Have another friend, who I would consider experienced with '80s SEKI produced brands.  Drop me  line, or a question anytime please!  Thanks.

They were really nice knives for the money. They now are starting to catch up in price/value for the level of quality.

Many folks still wont collect them as Parkers business reputation still lingers , but these were very nice knives. I like them a lot.

    Personally I had always been wary of the Parker brand , but really cannot say why.. This past couple of years I have had a change of opinion after buying a few here and there. I don't know about their new knives but of the few I have, I count them as some of my better built and attractive knives. BTW, are Taylor knives made in Seki, Japan? Thanks! 

  I have developed a liking for Taylor Knives from Japan and in particular Seki Japan. I have bought a few lately and they seem well made and attractive knives to me. I just got this little Taylor set and the stag is awesome. I have another similar set with MOP handles and like them as well.

David , I think Taylor was Seki and also Seto. As  far as the timeframe for the manufacture in Seki , I am not sure. I bet some of the Seki specialists that stop by here from time to time will know.

Thank you Kevin, my Coleman's have Seki on the tang, but my Taylor knives , (of which I am starting to really like) just say Japan. I have bought several Taylor knives recently and a couple of two piece sets and they really are sweet. I have never seen such beautiful stag handles on one set and the other set has mop handles and also are very nice. I didn't know much about Japan and Seki knives in general but am glad I opened my mind enough to see what I had been missing. You are right though...a lot of knowledgeable  knife folks here! Good to know.

David,

I think the Taylors just grow on ya. Very nice knives.

I was at the local gun show this weekend and picked up 4 more Parker knives. A nice Canoe and 3 Balisong knives(Gypsy)

Neat stuff.
