Need Help with Parker Edwards Damascus knives

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.

Need Help with Parker Edwards Damascus knives

Post by knifeaholic » Sat Jan 23, 2021 4:50 pm

I recently got these three mini trappers. All are tang stamped PARKER EDWARDS, all Damascus.

Each two blade has the pattern # 95145 marked. The one blade has pattern # 95155.

Wondering what the handle material is?

The two two-blade knives each have the same pattern number, but the handles appear different.

It is a natural material but does not resemble any bone or stag that I have ever seen.

Each knife has serial number 018 on the bolster.

Steve: I just saw this post now. I seem to remember that they referred to the darker two knives as having stag handles. It looks like bone(maybe camel bone)that has been treated with a torch and then the ends ground down. Here are pics of two earlier Parker knives that have similar handles.

Yes, the bottom two look like some Parker-Edwards Damascus Lockbacks I have that were sold as Stag. I have always felt it was a possibilty that they may be second cut stag or a European Stag. I do not believe mine were sold as Sambar Stag.
