I thought SMKW owned the United trademark, but that doesn't look right. They do sell a lot of the knives though. Look on here.

There was all kinds of that stuff flooding the market in the 1980s when butterfly knives were such a fad and before Benchmade started making really fine ones. It was not uncommon to find the Parker name, the Frost name, the United Cutlery name as well as other names I have forgotten on knives that were identical or very similar to one another. The price usually range from about $10-$20 depending on the marketing behind the knife.

United Cutlery was also associated with Boker Germany for awhile. I have a United Boker jack with a razor master blade that had beautiful candy stripe handles until they started out-gassing.Replaced them finally.
