Lets see those Parker's

The Parker-Frost Cutlery Company, Eagle Brand knives, & The Parker-Edwards Cutlery Company are among the brands that were manufactured under the Parker umbrella. Most Parker knives were imported from Japan, but some of the early Parker-Frost knives were made in the US by Schrade and in England by Rodgers-Wostenholm.

Here is another Bill Feeney scrimshaw done on a Parker knife. This one has a 25,000 year old mammoth ivory slab on the front and white bone on the back. Foam in the display is disintegrating. I need to rebuild it.

Knife has mirror-polished blades and half-stops.

The knife, the ivory, the scrimshaw all = a splendid knife.

Parker Cut. Co. I kept out of a collection of customs purchased a few years back. Just thought it was a nice little knife and it does feel good in the hand.

I haven't seen one like that from Parker before. Nice. I like it.

My first Parker knife. American Blade brand from 1983. It has a few problems but overall I like it. 3.5" closed with a locking main clip plus a smaller clip and coping blade on the other end. Kind of a different locking mechanism that hangs every now and then when you try to close the blade. Hopefully will improve with use.

Nick ,like that pattern ::tu::
Was doing some Research and found out Parker made Some knives for Sears / Craftsman. There’s a 1988/ 89 Trapper that might have to check out for my Craftsman Corner .
Let me know what you think of yours after toting it around for a bit .
Take care down there.

I noticed some trappers on Ebay that were Parker-Edwards made in Alabama. I read that the factory became Bear Mfg later. Haven't seen anything about Craftsman though.

I like the made-in-Japan Parkers like this 3 3/8" Mini Trapper

I recently noticed a Parker with two roosters etched on the main, and a big honkin' cockspur saw as a second blade. Is anyone familiar with it? Is it a genuine Parker Custom, or a clever throw-together knife ?

Thanks for any help (and yes, I've read the cockspur threads).

I recently received this Frost Cutlery folder, and it's a big ole' knife! Measures 10" oal/SS spear-point blade with n/n, NS bolsters, brass pins, and what I think are Rosewood covers. Has a comfortable weight of about 8 oz.'s, and arrived freshly sharpened by my friend Mark from SSk. There is an etch of a graveyard on the blade, and a stamp of 131 on the bolster, as well as Frost's logo and "Frost Cutlery/Surgical Steel/Japan" tang stamp. Walks open smoothly with a solid half-stop, and talks loudly when closing. A nice big knife to add to my collection! 8)

I like that one, Mark. Does the pattern have any kind of name? I'm wondering if the graveyard etch is because the handle is somewhat shaped like a coffin.

I'm afraid I don't have a pattern name for you Rick. ::shrug:: It was won on auction from Ebay and the only description was what I provided. I didn't make the connection between the etch and the coffin shaped handle, but now that you mention it, I'm sure they're connected. I'll do a little research and see if I can come up with a pattern name. Thanks for the compliment! 8)
