Hi peeps. I need a little help. My son in law gave me a knife a few or several months ago. I didn’t look at it much until a couple weeks ago and as of tonight I’m really noticing the detail. It’s entirely non descript really. Nothing looks at all special. It looks like a common boot knife, like a short dagger, narrow crossguard, simple leather sheath. The sort of thing that you can find in any flea market or at a county fair vendor. I noticed a couple weeks ago that it actually has a really nice edge on both sides. Tonight I noticed it also has a pretty decent weight to it and the edges have a good lookin and nicely defined bevel. I also realized it’s a full tang, not a rat tail tang, and that the guard looks like silver. It’s slightly tarnished. It may not be. It got more interesting as I noticed the mark on it. C. Schlieper and it has an “eye and sun” above the name. These aren’t stamped and are more like etched. Acid etched or whatever. Laser engraved? I have no idea. On the other side it simply says “stainless”. No country of origin. As best as I’m able to tell, the “eye brand” logo (used by Carl Schlieper) has been around for quite a while in various forms and began in regular use sometime in the 70s. The company filed for bankruptcy and was liquidated and later started back up in Solingen Germany in maybe the early 90s. The eye brand has continued. Of note as well, the grip pins also seem to be silver and the grip scales look like a dark brown wood, but they have an appearance more like micarta once you get past the sheen. I’ll get some pics tomorrow. It’s too late now to mess with it now. I searched images and I can’t find anything that looks like this. None of the boot knives look like this one does. Anyone know anything about these or how to find more info?
