Winchester knife information needed please.

Winchester entered the knife market as a manufacturer in 1919 by acquiring two existing knife companies; Eagle Knife Co. of Connecticut & Napanoch Knife Co. of New York. Winchester stepped away from the market in 1942 to focus on war related manufactured products, but re-entered in the late 1980s by licensing its name to Blue Grass Cutlery. Blue Grass had high quality knives made by Queen Cutlery that featured the Winchester brand name for a handful of years until the license arrangement ran its course. Winchester eventually started licensing to other companies & now you will find the brand name used by several knife manufacturers by way of license agreements.

I was giving this knife many years ago. I was wondering who made it and what’s it value would be. The top of the blade has some surface rust on it. I think it’s Bluegrass cutlery. Thanks for any help.

Has " '91" so came out in 1991, likely made by Queen.
The Blue Grass "Winchester" knives are well made Traditional pattern knives but there are more of them 'out there' than there are collectors interested in them. Hence prices tend to be low, usually under $50 for a bone handled one.
If your knife was auctioned on ebay it would likely bring about $35-$55.
