    Can anyone give me any info on an auto knife I picked up Monday? It is a 3 inch blade, auto knife. It has imitation bone on one side, a pocket clip on the other. The only thing marked on the blade is "USA", on top, then "420 steel", underneath. It has a gut hooker cut on the blade. This may be a cheap knock-off, but it seems well made.
    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds alot like one I have...

    Definately a truck stop special, very in-expensive, but as you have noticed this is one time these facts do not relate to durability... Good strong knife, smooth, fast, good lockup.

    Personally I wish I had different handles on mine, but heres a few pics.

    The stamp on your blade is exactly like mine.
    Sorry about pics, my daughter is the only one who can make that camera work.

    The "USA" is made in "ASIA."

    Oh sure, burst my bubble.
    Actually, I figured this was Chinese, I just don't see it stamped anywhere. Oh, well, thanks for the info.
