Here is my contribution to the Utica thread. Frontide tang stamp is : "PAT. PEND" over "UTICA CUTLERY CO." over "UTICA N.Y." on both blades. The backside master blade tang stamp is :"30". Would anyone have any idea when this one might have been made?
Thanks M.B. for the information. Looks like I need to do a little more digging on Utica myself. My curiousity about all these particular aspects of different knife companies keeps getting stronger with knives that I run into and see here. What a great place to learn! Thanks again! I am a little suprised that they were`nt great sellers though.....the knife is very eye appealing to me.
