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.

I have no knowledge about the knife company or style and would like general or valuable information about the knife.
Through Google I've seen it referred to as a "survival knife", "special ops knife", "1980's", "Parker Bros. knife", and old Ebay auctions valued it at $200.
In my opinion, it's is in "fair" shape at best but I could be wrong. Still has original sharpener but the compass on the bottom has been busted out.
Thanks for starting this blog and providing any information about the knife!
Not ignoring you. Just don't have any information for you. Send a PM to Knife7knut since he has one. (Ray has one of everything :lol: )

This may be my only Parker; certainly the only one I have in a photo.

Nothing extraordinary, just a handy little flying falcon. It's carried a lot and used some. Found it at a gun show in a bucket full of knives the dealer was selling @ 2 for a buck.

...and a couple more little Parker Lock Backs. I will point out that the Parker Beaver Tail is of noticeably higher quality than the Parker-Frost Husky. Not too surprising, really...a lot of folks have mentioned that, generally, the Parker-Frost era knives just don't have the same quality construction as other Parker collaborations. They look good enough, but, unfortunately, very often something was lost in the execution. Nothing wrong with it aesthetically, however.

I've always been a fan of the USA Parker pen knife - I like the design and slimness better than an Eisenhauer. The little damascus razors are nice little knives as well. I know Parkers get a bad rap, but I have nothing bad to say about the USA Parkers I have ...

Picked up this nice Parker-Edwards over the weekend at the Shriners Gun and Knife Show in Chattanooga, TN. It is a close likeness of the Case 521500 that was produced when Jim Parker was the owner of Case. Very possibly made at the same factory in Jacksonville, Alabama.

The bone & stag used on Parker knives is often kind of weird, IMO; but, you have some very attractive bone on your Parker-Edwards razor trapper, DR_M. Good looking knife.

Here's a fat stag "Punkin' Seed" lock back with some of the better stag I've seen on this brand.

Found this at a deal last year.

Looked good in the pictures til it got home. Somebody did a halfstep (I'm keeping it clean, y'all know I mean halfa$$) attempting at redoing the handle. Shot it nice and black but didn't do anything about the chipped and missing original coating.

Was gonna go original, but I've seen plenty of those.
