"The Valor Daggers 373 & 407 were popular with the US military due to the great manufacturing and the leather handles. The 407 is a great boot or belt knife while the 373 would be great on a belt with leg ties.www.fitzwillies.com"

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

"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."

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.....
