That’s a Diamond Edge stamp. Diamond Edge was a brand name owned by Shapleigh Hardware of St. Louis. They didn’t make knives themselves but had them made on contract by various manufacturers including Schrade, Empire and others. Diamond Edge was their premium brand and was used on knives, axes, etc.

You can do a search here for “ Shapleigh” to learn a lot more. ::tu::

How about a picture of the entire knife?

I don't think they are any useful parts on an off gassed very used knife ? Knife mechanics looking for replacement blades want them to be full or nearly full and the liners are likely quite corroded.

Are you sure it’s not an early IKCO stamp .
They used the diamond as well and you can make out the K clearly .

Looks like an IKCO knife and stamp to me as well.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

I stand corrected. Thanks for pointing out the K, I couldn’t see it on the OP. Glad y’all caught my mistake. :oops:
