Can't say . Did Schrade make some for M&G? Robeson? Beats me. It has a Schrade'y look. ???? I'm sure no source for that . J.O'.

That looks fantastic! It looks awfully like this Shapleigh I have - without the endcap of course.

Ridgegrass,your knife is older than the Schrade made M&G's.It likely either an Ulster or Miller Brothers,but could be someone else.

Looks pretty similar . This knife is a tank . It was one of the reasons I carried it back in the day . It was strong and tight ... still is

These three look to have a common thread, if all dimensions are the same. Three beauties. ::nod::👍
