Help ID This One

Post by Paladin » Sun Jan 15, 2023 9:31 pm

Guys,
I was digging into a batch of knives I bought about a year ago and I found this custom knife with a maker's mark that is small and hard to read. The knife is well made and very sleek with pearl and nice file work.
I'll attach photos that are over-exposed in an effort to make the stamp more visible. Not sure why any maker would make his ID so small and so hard to distinguish.
I sure will appreciate any help on this. ::handshake::

I finally got an identity of this maker and it is TS Knives. That is all I know about the maker right now but I just wanted to pass it along.

I just googled t s knives, and the last listing is for Arizona custom knives. Hope this helps.

Thanks Edgy. To be truthful, that is where I learned that it was, in fact, TS knives. I am not completely comfortable on this as I didn't find a wealth of information on the maker.

Ray! As it was said, a Google search produced, https://tsblades.com , and under the "About Us" tab they explain themselves a bit. They're a Spanish company, confirmed by the "Spanish/English" language option on their homepage, and were founded in 2016. Says a little more but not much. Hope that helps! 8)

Marco,
As always, I appreciate your help,,, but,,,, the interesting part is that I did not see the peculiar signature or logo that is on my knife anywhere on the site. Plus, the type of products on the site are not remotely like the knife I have. I believe it is not related to my knife.

That was the first thing I looked for Ray, the logo, but I also didn't find it. And, like yourself I didn't see even one knife that looked anything like yours, the reason I made the connection to similar knives was due to "edgy46" mentioning Arizona Custom Knives, and when I looked at them on that site there were 95 listings for knives branded "TS Knives" and all were VERY much like the one you posted. The "Search" function at "ACK" doesn't always work too well, so if you want to take a look at the listings there you should Google "TS Knives" first, and then click-on the "ACK" link, as that will take you directly to the 95 listings instead of trying a direct search from the site. At "ACK" if you click-on a listing to get the details, after viewing the knife scroll down to the information cuz they post links to the builder's website, or to knives that are or have been listed, and many times it's most useful, unfortunately for "TS Knives" they have little information and viewing only for knives that have gone through or are currently listed on their site, so I'm afraid you won't find out much about the company through them. The mystery deepens! 8)
