    First thing... Always read the rules of a new forum you join...

    We cannot give you the value per the rules.

    As for who makes it I dunno

    It looks like a very inexpensive pakistan made knife. I assume it's pot metal and you can see large inclusions in the faux damascus... If im wrong so be it. I don't have a trained eye on old fixed blades.

    While we can't give out value.. If it is indeed a pakistan made knife its not worth anything imho.

    Thanks for the honest opinion. Maybe someone on this page can confirm your opinion or answer my question on manufacture or make of this knife. And yes like the other guy stated I never asked for the value. Please reread my post. Thank you

    I don't recognize the maker's mark, but it almost looks familiar. The overall style of the knife is similar to several makers from the mid-south in the 70s and 80s. The knife appears to be well used and cared-for, so I am guessing not pot-metal. I thought it might be a Diamond J, but his mark is different. Good luck in your search...

    You might try at the bladesmith's forums, I know they have a thread specifically for maker's marks (no, not the whiskey, you drunkards). I'd post a link but I'm unsure as to the rules about posting links to different forums here.

    • Warning issued for insults
    He never asked for a value. He asked if anyone knew who made it so that he can research it himself. Perhaps you should read questions before rambling like an idiot about rules. Better yet if you don't know the answer to the question simply keep your mouth shut. I'm sure you wasted his time and everyone's time who had to see if you answered his question before they provided a answer.

    I already replied I was wrong and sorry. No need to shit on it more son. You read just as bad as I do.

    Only one I've ever seen using a mark like that is diamond j knives. Found this email address for them...

    No I definitely read better than your goofy ass. You obviously need plenty of people to remind you to keep your mouth shut. Anything else you want to say there princess?

    6 posts on the site and already teaching everyone manners. Very impressive. Perhaps you could be moved right to a moderators position. All caps too boot so we know you must be serious.

    Just a note I could only find one knife by Diamond J Knives and it was a different mark but maybe it changed at some point to or from what OP has shown also found a thread on here about that maker and it looks like that maker was banned from these forums.

    Guy chill,

    All he did was jump the gun abit trying to protect the forum’s rules. It’s not worth turning the thread into a flame war.

    He apologized; no need to rub it in.

    @Lapedog consider it is coming from a user who has been here for ~6 months with half his post in this thread.

    I know. I’m not trying to belittle or insult him either. I don’t even know him.

    I have a Diamond J knife from before they were banned, and the mark isn't the same. Its shape is like a playing card diamond rather than a gemstone diamond.

    One warning with points for insults.
    Another post warranted a second warning, but, new member. We'll see if he can get a handle on his temper and tongue.
