       I noticed that all my osprey are stamped seki but most osprey pocket knives that I see elsewhere

      are not.

The SEKI stamping is probably for Seki, Japan .. a geographical location .. not steel type. Which .. imo .. indicates yours were produced in SEKI, Japan. The others were manufactured .. we know not where.

           Is it common for a knife maker to use different steel from different places to make the           

           same type of knife?


It is common for manufacturers to use material that is readily available. Therefore, should a "brand" have manufacturing facilities in multiple countries, a difference in materials may result.


Should a brand simply "farm out" the manufacturing process to multiple suppliers .. they generally issue specifications ..to include: material, hardness, finish, etc. There still exists a lack of control.
