Parker Identification help

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.

Parker Identification help

Post by tinroof » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:59 pm

I have 3 Parker knives, one is tang stamped as "Parker Edwards, Jacksonville Alabama" - 1423-1. The other two are "Parker Cutlery Company" and made in Japan on the reverse tang, also "Eagle Brand Cutlery" hot stamped on the blade but no model number. I have seen other Parkers listed as made by Seki and some are listed with model numbers. Is there a identity marking to relate a knife being made by Seki -- or maybe they are the only maker ?? Is a catalog or list available to find model numbers, and dates of production. Thanks for your help in trying to learn a little more.

I don't know if this knife belongs under this topic or not. It is only marked on the tang of the main blade as far as I can tell. It says EAGLE. ?
PHILA. ?
It looks like there are at least 2 more letters/figures where I have the question marks. My question is, does this knife belong under the Parker umbrella? Is this an example of the "Eagle Brand" or is this a different company entirely?
Your assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

::welcome:: NW... BTW... New Windsor is in my neck of the woods....
Very nice looking Eagle brand knife... but it is not related to Parker.
All I know about Eagle is... they were one of the three companies bought out by Winchester in the early 1920's.
'til later....
