My dad ran a pawn shop for years and this was a product of that. So, I don't know any of it's history.
It was made by a maker named Black and is marked with his name and USA. The engraving was done by French. I am familiar with him and his work. But, I believe he retired some years ago. My question is of value. I understand the value of this as a tool and I acquired it to use as such. But as it is a beautiful piece, I stashed it away and never used it. I came across it this weekend and the same old questions came up again. Can any of you give me any info on this knife and it's maker?
