    My grandfather left me his old pocket knife after he passed. I have been wanting to find out what make/year the knife is for a while. Any help finding out who made the knife and/or how old it is would be appreciated!

      Any makers marks or symbols on the other side of the tang?
    2. edjon56, 3 years ago
      No, unfortunately there are no symbols or markings on the knife

      Hey edjon, welcome to CW! :^D
      To me it looks like a custom handmade knife, made by a craftsman, and possibly made for sale at a craft, or knife show. It isn't marked, because it was sold with a business card, or because your grandfather knew them. It may have been a local person, and not easy to identify, but good luck!
      It is a nice looking knife, and one that should last for years to come, maybe passed down, in memory of your grandfather, is more important, then who made it! :^)

      Oh! What size is the knife/blade? :^)
