Interesting bug carving on the back of the "Milo" knife. Very similar to the Laguiole "bee".

I would guess that one is either a Laguiole or one of the many copies. I'm not an expert on French knives.

I Just found what I think is the same knife after doing an internet search.
Looks just like this one
I suppose its just a custom knife

Yeah, that sure looks to be the exact same knife. The damascus pattern around the "Milo" seems to match exactly, and there's no way to do that with real damascus. That doesn't necessarily mean it is a custom knife, just that this particular knife sold on eBay at least once.

Completely Agree!! I also look very close at the handles & its natural crack lines & they are identical as well. The former owner cleaned the pins I guess, lol.
I sure would like to know more about it & the other one
Thank you Sir for trying to figure this out for me

The two op knives look an awfully like Pakistan made blades to me, not expensive at all. I could be wrong however. No place of manufacturing at all on the blade? Terry ::tu::
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Yes they look too much like the low quality "custom damascus" imports from the far east.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
