    Does anyone happen to know this knife maker logo? Someone is looking for info on the knife, so I thought I'd see if anyone may know about it.

    Here's the link, because I can never get photos to post properly for some reason

    Thanks!

    I've said it before, it would be great if there was some sort of registry for knifemakers' marks. That's something I would have thought the Canadian Knifemaker's Guild would have been interested in.

    Best I can suggest is trying an image search on the internet to see if it shows up.

    I've checked with Google. I'll hunt a bit deeper by cropping the photo and see what I can come up with. Thanks

    The countries in Europe have a registry like the silversmith one and just for knives, there is one online out of Africa I believe but it works very poorly. North America never adopted the idea for whatever reason

    Maintaining a long term database is the biggest hurdle and without government backing like the trademark registry it might run into problems

    That's the issue. Building a database for makers marks could take up to an hour, depending on how fancy you want to get. The problem is ensuring that database is maintained and all the data is properly archived for decades to come. Without some sort of funded organization backing it longterm, it's not going to work. If the Canadian Knifemakers Guild had been a real guild, dedicated to preserving and passing on the history, knowledge, and skills of making knives in Canada, it would have been a good fit to house such a database.

    Fair enough. I figured I'd ask. Was hoping someone had maybe seen it over the years. No big deal. Thanks guys!
