There are others by this maker out there. ... Swco1hd-d0

Your knife has an advertisement on it. I wouldn't be surprised if these were sold though Parker - Frost in the 1980's or 90's. They imported a lot of knives from Japan.

As I recall from managing a cutlery store in the 1980s they were imported by Gutmann Cutlery. They also imported Explorer knives from Germany. I believe at that time they were also the Importer of Puma Knives.

At the time I shunned them in favor of German or American knives. A few decades later I finally realize they were good knives for the money. If I knew then what I know now sort of thought process.
