UK&R contracted with Union Cut Co for hunting knives, I don't know who made American pocket knives for them. Most UK&R fixed blades I have or have seen were made in either Germany or Czechoslovakia other than the ones made by Union Cut Co.

Agreed: I have a 4.25 inch toothpick/tickler made by Utica for UK&R and a 5 inch toothpick/tickler made by Imperial for UK&R. Not sure if pictures would be appropriate here at the Ulster ranch; But I'd be happy to post them elsewhere if anyone is interested. Thanks to all who posted here--great thread!

What can you tell me about this knife? Handle material? Age? It has the curved tang stamp if that helps. It belonged to my Grandpa and he passed in 1968 so I know it's at least that old. Appreciate the help.

Been a lot of years since I posted this one. Three back springs, pinched slanted bolsters, picked bone? , and a beautiful etch.

Mike, I wonder how many of those softball players lived through the war?

Nice one D. Didn’t some research say that etch is a hardware store?

Say Roger you have some very nice knives posted in this thread and the Shapleigh and ValleyForge threads. And several nice knives in the Schrade thread.

Thanks for sharing your pics.

Keep your edge sharp, otherwise you just can't cut it. Mind and blade. :D
