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

Arguably, the easiest & most frequently used method for dating cutlery.

 

Do you have a unique/rare stamping ??

 

Care to share a pic & a bit of history ??

 

Just as important ... a stamping that's just a little (or, a lot) suspect.

Which "Western" stamp is on the other side ???

Western Tang Stamp Date Chart
I have about 20 Western knives
Mostly fixed blades
You can't really date them with the chart accurately

The guys on Bernard Levines forum think it has to do with a special factory order
Like for example, Bob George Sporting Goods Store (hypothetical store)
I think it may stand for "blood groove"
But, the proper term for blood groove is "fuller"

It's one of a few mystery knives I have...heheheheh :)
A U.S military utility knife. Ulster mountain pocketknife, c. 1942/43.

The "ULSTER KNIFE CO." stamping.

The "U.S." stamping on the bail.
