It has Wilkinson stamped on the blade, seems to be extremely hard. Anyone have any information on the maker or is it Chinese junk.

I have a butcher knife stamped Wilkinson Sword with some kind of emblem under that.
So, just a guess, it's not authentic.

But I hope I'm wrong.

Only paid $10.00 it seems to be well made the hand guard has brass pins through it, may have been by an unknown knife maker named Wilkinson maybe not.
Thanks for the reply.

Does not look like Wilkinson Sword product.....name may have been "borrowed". Look at the flat on either side next to the guard for other marks.

Regardless, it appears to have a well made handle and if it keeps an edge, put it to good use!

I have a knife with the Wilkinson logo, but not the word. Made in Germany. I have had it about 60 years. No idea the age.

I thought Wilkinson name was sold to the Chinese, back when they were buying names to sell their products under, could it have been that long ago?

It does look really good, not cheesy at all, a good find, may you have many more.
They were swordmakers to the King i believe, like Krebs and Germany.

There used to be a Wilkinson Sword razor, but that has been a while back. So my first thought is, that the knife maker has used a name that sounded good. But has nothing to do with the old brand.

The wicked shall be turned into Hades, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. Psalm 9:17, 18
