"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."

Do we have other SEKI Vintage Collectors out there?

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.TimSee More

Posted on April 4, 2015 at 7:07 1 Comment

I attempted to watch the blood moon lunar eclipse from my vantage point just south of Kansas City. Saw the full moon, 3/4 moon, 1/4 moon, and just a sliver of the moon before daylight beamed. Darn, I missed the 4-minute blood moon stage. Oh well, next time maybe. But I did enjoy some invigorating chat time with a couple of friends of mine!

Good day all.....

Kansas still would issue permits for gun owners who…

Anyone got some ideas for Nic?

Posted on March 29, 2015 at 10:55 2 Comments

Nic asked the question in chat room:

I wanted to know what would be a vintage good knife or brand to focus on if I wanted to start a collection of American knives focusing on the West/cowboy traditions.
