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 are some pictures of the Pride USA Trapper. I'm sure it was built overseas. It is a 4 1/8" Trapper in the closed position with  Brown laser etched bone scales. The two blades are highly polished and are stamped German surgical steel. There is no play in the blades in the open position and they have a decent snap when they are closed.. I did the light test thru the liners and there was very little light showing through the backsprings. I only paid around $10.00 for this knife and it was a good buy. I would compare the quality to that of a Rough Rider. The bone scales were put on without any cracks between the bolsters and scales. This  is a decent knife for the money and I will have to check out more of them. I do have three leg knives from this company that I bought for my wife's collection and they were comparable to the Taylor brand Schrades.

Here is a little guy I found while looking at some containers I have of knives today.I don't have a clue who made this knife. I bought it from someone who needed some money and I was trying to help them out.

From the Description, I'm guessing Pridr USA is made in the Frost Factory.  Frost loves to print things "German Steel"  Nice looking knife.   I'll need to check a couple out.

Two sailing tools, one by Myerchin,  the other by Fury.  Myerchin is a company that makes some fairly expensive nautical knives.  The  Small company began in the USA but moved to Nova Scotia. Originally the products were made in Japan but are mostly made in China now.    I'm unlcear about the lineage of Fury.  Some sources say it is part of "Furi" cutlery, but I really don't know.   Below is the black handled Fury copy of Myerchin's P300 sailing tool.  Myerchin holds the patent on the unique design.  It is unclear if the Fury copy is licensed or not. Fury copy claims to have a 440C blade, but I doubt it.  Myerchin claims their blade is also 440C (at least on the website.)  As far as tang stamps go, it is "Stainless"

The Myerchin knife is more solid and does seem to cut better.  The Fury opens with less friction but looser isn't always better.  Both have liner lock blades and spikes.   The Myerchin comes with a nylon pouch with whale logo and also has a belt clip on the reverse side of the knife.  The Fury comes in clam packaging, has no pouch or clip.

The Myerchin comes is brushed aluminum, red anodized aluminum, and blue anodized aluminum scales all sportign the whale logo.  The Fury comes in basic black.

Fury cost $10.  Myerchin cost  $30.  You won't cry as much when drop the Fury overboard, but you might curse more, when the Fury gets dull. Both are worth what you'll pay for them.

Fury - Left ... Myerchin - Right

The unique main blade was patented by Myerchin.  They call it a Sheepshead blade. Short but very easy to work with, especially when cutting line.

Those are cool looking knives, Toby

This was a Christmas Surprise.  I suspect "Bone Edge" is a Frost Trademark these days.   Hard to say.  Anyway, nice little hunter/skinner with a 5 inch blade and leather (albiet cheap) sheath.  Don't really know much about it, other than "made in Pakistan" of undetermined stainless steel.

It looks like a handy little skinner. I like the bone handle.

oh yea some more good looking knives ..thanks tom

Lets not forget the franklin mints

I had this set a long time ago.  I used the Deer knife when I was in the Navy back in the 80's.   The others have migrated to who knows, but its fun to see the set again!

Here is a trapper that I have that is from Hallmark.

Here is a Rite Edge hawkbill That I bought for about $5.00. It is produced in Pakistan and is only worth about what I paid for it. The quality is really not very good, but I got what i paid for.These on the other hand are well built.
