Hi and ::welcome:: to AAPK. Sorry, these are not in my field of collecting. Here is an advertising poster from Smoky Mountain Knife Works in 1991.

Actually the poster is from the Camillus series of Riders of the Silver Screen series knives. These are moderately priced knives and often sell for $40 - $50 each. It looks to me as if the knives in the op are much lower quality and I think are stamped USA? These sold for $4.99 each or $74.99 for the set of 17 in the 1993 / 94 SMKW catalog. You can find these on ebay for additional info. I'll scan the page from the catalog and add it tomorrow or when I get a chance.

I think these are the same knives that are in the op.
