Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

We've got Steel Warrior/Frost  and now Taylor S&W.  What about all of those unknown brands and  Unbranded knives out there.  Many say China Stainless,  or just Stainless,  Rostfrei, Inox, or nothing at all.   Or maybe you have a knife with a brand name you're not sure of and would like to know who actually owns the TM and is the brand worth the money (Rite Edge, Fury, Maxam, etc.)  We all got 'em, lets see some of them and hear what you think about them.

Here is an interesting little item that I have, and here is what it is broke down.

Very nice.  How long is that blade?

U.S. Classics was one of those small global brands.  They got a bad rep for the whole Salt Rivier, Kentucky thing.  The makers (3D's Inc.) was a small cottage industry  in Shepherdsville, Kentucky which rest on the Salt River.  The company said the knives were designed in Salt River Ky. but was never real clear on them being made in China.  The tang stamp is also marked Salt River, Ky.   I was unaware of all the hoopla around the brand when I bought the first couple knives.   By the time I found out about the stink, I didn't care.   The knives are pretty darn good and the patterns are also interesting.

Swell Center Carpenter's Whittler, Bartender, Baby Barlow, Wharncliffe Sleeve-board 1/2 Whittler

Same knives, Barlow, 1/2 Whitler, Whittler, Bartender.

All are white smooth bone, some whiter than the others.

some great looking knives love the cannon,tom

Toby, that blade is 5 1/2" long.

Makes for a pretty cool little dagger.  I'd like to see something like that in a walking stick!

Gary Yokum  (KY knives) is an eBay seller.  You can find his knifes by going to eBay and typing in “zix”.  He owns the TM to several brands, including Raging Bull, Crowing Roosters and, I think  Pride USA.   He’s also done short runs known as Mississippi Gambler, Courthouse Stockman, Love Birds and Sweetheart and Tennessee Stud.   The knives seem to be made in the Rough Rider Factory. 

I’ve only got a couple of his five inch toothpicks but the fit and finish on both is quite nice.  Quality is laos opn par with Rough Riders.  My only complaint would be he uses a lot of acrylic scales.  I’m not crazy about acrylic/plastic/celluloid scales.  The knives vbelow are two of his five inch toothpickls from the old Guardian Angel line

Five inch Guardian angel Toothpicks.  Top is cracked ice, bottom imitation tiger eye.  I like the latin cross shield more than the angel wings.  My daughter says they look like gang banger knives.

I have a Pride USA trapper that I bought from him that seemed like a well built knife. I have wondered about some of the others he has. that is where I bought that RR hawksbill. I have always gotten a good deal from him.

I'd love to hear a review and see a few pics of the Pride USA.

I've got a couple of the US Classic whittlers myself.  I see that the wharncliffe whittler is a dead ringer for the Steel Warrior wharnie.

Never knew that they were supposed to have been designed in Kentucky though.

My US Classic (user) is a dead ringer for my MasterCraft Humpback whittler (keeper).

Different handle materials of course, but I like the nail nicks on the US Classic better...

Lets not forget the franklin mints

Cool knives. I love the bolsters on that whittler. I don't have a single US Classic knife in my collection. Jan,  I love wildlife print knives.
