This is going to be a bit more difficult.  Do you have any info on the knives, where they were purchased, ect.  These are file knives and pretty basic.  That stamp could be a hobby maker even

Hi Jan, these came from a man that lived in  Bogalusa, Louisiana  between 1970 and last 1980's

It is part of his collection that I am slowly researching and selling off for his estate.  There are so many fine knives and Im becoming attached to a few of them.  

I recached out to the Facebook page of Max Burnett and Im not sure that's him since I thought Bob and Max were from Paris, Arkansas  any way, thanks for the help but for now Im hitting a dead end.

Yeah, I like Jan's hobby maker thought, or even a good possibility that it was someone who was going pro with knife making but was likely not at the point of being a full time maker when these knives were made.  These knives exhibit a good amount of skill, or at least talent.  

The fact there are two knives from the same maker most likely means the man whose estate your helping either liked the makers work so much he bought the second knife later on, or he bought them at the same time, likely due to a good price or connecting with the maker, say at a gun / knife show.  

In the former case, the buyer probably would have, at some point, kept the knife maker's contact information (whether it was lost or thrown out at some point is a different story, but if there was a gun safe in that estate, I'd check for the records there).  In the latter case, there might still be written or other records, but you might have to look in a different place (like maybe even among photos, maybe even featuring the knives).  Of course you might not have access to any of these, but thought it worth mentioning in case you did.  

There are, &have been, a lot of knife makers, & I've had difficulty tracking down the makers of some of my knives.  Granted, I doubt I'm very good at it, so don't let me have the last word here.  But since you have some access to the buyer's estate, you might be able to find the information that way.  It's worth continuing the search, at least in my opinion.  Good luck.

Steven,

Try mailing a letter to the address on the site.  Your either going to get it back with something written on the envelope, or with luck, someone may contact you back
