Not exactly a pocket knife...

Post by jmpaige » Thu Jul 30, 2020 12:06 pm

Hello, was wondering if anyone had any information on this knife. The only stamping I have located was the United on the blade. It isn't what I would call a pocket knife so I don't know if you would be able to help but it is worth a shot.
Thanks in advance,
Jessica

Often incorrectly called a "folding bowie" knife, it is a modern version of a D'Estaing knife or an "expandable blade" knife. Yours originally had a sheath and was likely made in Pakistan. It is modern, probably last 20-30 years at the oldest. Made for United Cutlery a firm that specializes in inexpensive cutlery.
