    I found this small knife in a drawer in my moms basement 2-3 years ago. I thought it was cool and tossed it in the tool box.

    Didn’t think much of it until recently. I started collecting auto knives about 3-4 months ago and remembered this knife.

    I dug it out of the tool box and really looked at it. Seems very well made. Says made in Japan. Surgical steel. And has a Eagle/hawk makers mark.

    Anyone have any info on it. Can’t seems to find anything

    thanks

    Could you zoom in on the eagle/hawk and post a big pic of it? It would help if the blade was horizontal too so the eagle/hawk is positioned correctly. I don't recognize it offhand.

    Not trying to be picky but it's hard (for me anyways) to make out the markers mark.

    Hmm I'm not sure it's an eagle or a hawk. Looks like a falcon to me...

    Parker used a hawk or eagle on their blade logo but more defined, yours could be an older variation?
    The blade profile certainly looks familiar.

    Maybe an older frost cutlery. They were made in Japan before they took off for china. I could be waaaaay off as I'm still learning about knives.

    Thanks. Is it worth anything. I’m love having it on my keychain. It’s very sharp.

    I could def be wrong, brother.. I could tell you more about the 80s and 90s Red Wings, Katanas, and Muay Thai lol! I'm actually a few months deep into learning about knives as you are. But after researching a bit.. that's what im thinking. Not sure on prices actually. Hey.. if you dig it.. why not, you know? Was your Madres right? Keep it and use it as a tool, baby!

    It could be an old Frost Logo.
    This one is from a knife I've owned since about 1985 and it was made in Japan
