I wish I did, Jeff.   Mos tof the Gaff knives I've seen came out of Solingen, Germany but seem to have been destined to the U.S. Market.  I've never seen one by Kinfolk.   The shape is very similar to the all of the other Gaffs I've seen.   They way the hook lies seems to be a major design flaw to me.  I can't imagine using the other two blades when the hook is folded into the handle.  I'm still looking for a good one for my collection.
