ULSTER over KNIFE USA tang stamp difference...

Post by Gone2Three » Mon Jan 04, 2021 10:22 pm

Howdy friends,
Just wanted to see if I could get some clarification on an old Ulster knife that I acquired.
From my research, ULSTER over KNIFE USA is post 1941, but my main question is, when exactly did it go to just Ulster over U.S.A ? What year or years did it change? On my knife the
Ulster is also in script on the badge....
Thanks for the help folks!
Oh, forgot to say there is a 40 on the reverse side as well

I don't know the exact answer, but that looks like a 1960's knife to me based on the handles

Intresting... appreciate it, and thanks for your quick reply ::handshake::

Speaking of handles, is this bone or Ulster's Bonite??

Does not look like bone to me from the pictures. Here’s how you can tell for sure viewtopic.php?f=98&t=62145

Thank you Ken, still learning and I've probably asked the same prior on a couple of other knives....
My original thought was the Bonite material based on the research, but it was wishful thinking ::handshake::
I'll probably invest in one of them thingamajiggers one day
