Welcome Home

I will apologize in advance if I am going about this in the wrong way.

I came across the 3 knives in the picture and was wondering if anyone could help identify the year and value. Thanks

Welcome, Ralph!

Your best bet for identification is photos. Lots of photos. :-) Take close up pics of any and all markings on the blades, tangs and handles. Tang stamps and shields are a primary way to peg down the year, and being able to tell the overall condition of the knives can help nail down the value. Any boxes or paperwork that came with them helps as well. 

Thanks Steve for the suggestion. Here are 3 close-ups of the tangs.

Looks like more photos did not do the trick.

Ralph it helps a good deal but ID'ing knives is not a quick research.  Just give me a little time

Try this link, a lot of info. on schrade and uncle henry.     https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/knife_forum/viewtopic.php?t=13944

You need better pix, Closer of the Tang Stamps, But the uncle Henry Whittler is about $30, the other 2 I can't see!

Yes...try to get pics of *any* markings on the blades and handles. As close and clear as you can get on the tang stamps, and a full shot of both sides. It's easy enough to tell the brand of your knives, but without other markings, it is next to impossible to date. :-) Sometimes, it can be a process. 

Thank you all for your input. Thanks Steve for the ID on the Uncle Henry.

Per suggestions, here are a bunch of pictures of the switchblade.

Thanks Again

Does not look like any info is forthcoming, so let's consider this closed.

FYI the Uncle Buck in not a Whittler which is 4" long. I believe it is a Stockman as it is 2 3/4" long.

That Buck knife is likely the most valuable of the lot.  Its an early one with a great design/pattern.  I have not seen one before.  The Uncle Henry is unfortunately not worth too much but a good user.  The switchblade has some age and collectability, but a specialized market.  I would recommend a collector of Italian switches to take a look.  Nice group of knives overall!

I would say that Buck knife is the most valuable of the lot.  Its an early tang stamp, the pattern of which I have not seen before.  Nice knife.

The Uncle Henry is a small stockman, not worth a lot but a good user.

The switchblade should be looked at by a collector of those, but I would estimate not super valuable due to plastic handles and build of the knife.  But again, the tang stamp could hold some value.  A specialized market for those.

Nice collection of three knives!

Thanks Bryan,

I will look further into the Buck to see what I can find out.

The Uncle Henry, I will keep just for function.

The Rizzuto Estileto turns out to be worth over $200.

Thanks for your help.
