Those are great examples for anyone who,wants to know what a “cold stamp” looks like. Note how the metal is pushed out around the sides of the letters, especially on the Crown Cutlery and Russell.

That's why I don't mess with "old" knives or tang stamps. I am clueless on the subject.

Great line up, fakes or not, they still sure are pretty.

And I bet they cut well. The problem is, did some pay antique Cattaraugus, Continental and Russell prices for them thinking they were legit?

🤔 That Crown stamp is cold stamped too, but elusive . . . I wonder why it was chosen???

I've seen many Kutmaster stamps that look like they are cold stamped.This knife looks jazzed up though.

I think some of these 'knife re-assemblers' (fake makers) are compulsive. If they have a parts lying around that can be assembled into a knife, they go ahead and build the knife, not thinking of how much money it might bring in, just the satisfaction of turning parts into a functioning knife.

Just slap a COCA-COLA or similar shield on them and they become a double collectible to the unknowing. Does anyone know where these new factroy counterfeits that Bighomer shows came from? They have been around for years and plenty of them.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
