That's damn decent of you Bill.
That's damn decent of you Bill.
i also have a whitetail cutlery knife that i cannot track ... it has glover impressed into the base of a stainless steel blade and a imitation bone handle with a solid stainless ....ummm 3 piece pressing in the middle of the two imitation bone slats that are pinned with brass and also have a stainless oval centered that reads "whitetail" the shape is that of a suregrip also i can send in a pic if someone responds with interest
You cannot track it?
Have you read THIS thread? The background story is in here.
If you want information about YOUR knife, you will need to POST (not send in) pictures of it.
Picture posting instructions are here:
sorry about that i literally joined this forum yesterday after researching "MY" knife and i really didnt want to go through all the trouble of taking the pictures and uploading to a thread (that hasnt had a contribution in a year) without some sign of interest or activity for that matter (just to explain my lack of posting etiquette). I did in fact read this POST and did not see anything specific enough to bring me to a 100% certainty as to whether or not i had accurately identified MY knife or TRACKED its history to its origin . With all of that being said here are the pictures of MY knife ...

Odd... all through that case, which I worked on for weeks, I never actually saw one of Glover's knives.
That is better looking than I would have expected it to be... even if the markings are all on the wrong side.
Here's an older (2004) topic on Whitetail Cutlery:
And here's a scan of the Whitetail Cutlery shield:
These were the shields used on low-end imports that were sold at flea markets and junk shops in Arkansas in the 1990s. Perhaps they still are today?
I have a "Christmas White Tail Cutlery (Glover stamped) display case with 12 of the orginal knives. I have pictures if you would like. Greg

FWIW the current SMKW Christmas catalog shows a Whitetail BRAND knife imported by Frost that is similar to the knife in post #25, but without the shield, and not marked GLOVER.
I think I bought this one in the 80's likely NYstate
No Glover on it,likely one of the imports I would imagine
Mine has the same shield and blade etch, but no Glover. I'll try to scan the overall knife later.I have a "Christmas White Tail Cutlery (Glover stamped) display case with 12 of the orginal knives. I have pictures if you would like. Greg

i still dont know for sure that my whitetail cutlery is an original or a knockoff , handmade or produced, glover original or counterfeit ( pardon my use of the word counterfeit as i am sure there is a better term although it escapes me ) anyways i guess the point i mean to make is that i still havent found any images or descriptions of a knife like the one i have ... everyone whom ive seen posting pictures of their "whitetail cutlery handmade"knives have many diferrences in design in comparison to this knife ... i.e the shield ,the whitetail cutlery writing and the image beneath (i want to say the logo rather than image but as i am totaly new to knife identification i am not sure that would be correct) . could anyone say with confidence what my knife should be titled ,what with this jumble of controversial history looming over the whitetail cutlery knives and name . Mr Levine perhaps you could help me define this knife ( i just want to know what to present it as in conversation) thank you all seriously for your input an patience with my obsessive nature concerning this knife ... this knife was my first good knife and as a child it was lost (or so i believed) roughly 12-15 years later i was helping my mom and stepfather move into a new house and amidst the shuffling my stepfather rediscovered the knife he had hidden away from me more than a decade earlier ... probably a lame story to anyone but myself but i thought it would explain a bit better my deep interest in the history of this knife before i developed my own hhistory with this knife
I grew up in Hollis Glover's community and he was well known for his knife making skill, He even done some counterfitting himself.
Deja vu. See post #23 and responses following.
Student of many things...expert at few; Take it all with a grain of salt.
It would seem all Glover marked knives aren't all made by Glover himself before the Pakistani deal started. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Whitetail...item23220d84c1
Whitetail Cutlery "Hunting Knife" with leather sheath Handmade in Pakistan blades is 5.5" long whole knife is 10.25" Handle seems to be white plastic. There is the name "Glover" printed on the knife.
