My dad recently gave me a very special Eye Brand knife. It was my great grandpa’s, my grandpa’s, my dad’s, and now it is mine. I have many memories of seeing it carried and used as I grew up in Oregon.
I’m curious what information you nerds can give me on this one. I struggled getting a picture of the actual Eye Brand logo, but it is in fact there, along the blade. Stamped to the right of the Eye logo is text reading CARL SCHLIEPER, with SOLINGEN GERMANY directly underneath the name.
I’ve read up on the history and am fascinated. My main incentive for posting here is to share this knife with you guys and also to find out when it was made and the value of it. I will never sell this thing, it’s got too much utility and heirloom quality to it
