    Seal Knife?

    I have had this button knife for about 20 years. I was told it was being tried out by the seals at the time. Very strong spring action.

    Does anyone know anything about this knife or the story? And a possible value?

    Thanks,



    Jim

    I have one.

    I got it in 1996. It was made by Paragon in the USAicon. Named 'SEAL' knife. It is a good knife, but the actuator spring is weak and speaking from experience, difficult to replace without four hands - I only have two.

    Pocket carry is not a good idea. I have the scar on my right hand to prove it. The button can be depressed and the knife open in the pocket without you knowing it - until it's too late.

    Not really considering the number of gents who carry snubnose revolvers in their front pockets.

    It is on the big side for a 'pocket knife', but there isn't a clip on it and a belt pouch seemed counter-intuitive for an auto opening knife. I carried the knife in a back pocket and had a BHP and spare mags on my belt at the time. All during the course of my employment at the time.

    It is a copy...

    of the "Original" Black Knife which was in part developed by Charles Ochs III, aka OX Forge. This is a link to his website; the latest interation of the Back Knife is available under GSA Contract to government agencies; and is(obviously) popular among the Special Ops Community. I have one of the OX Forge knives and I can assure you that it is not only a big folder, it is well made and a fully functional knife. It is also know (by other knife makers) as the UDT Knife among other knives. Only the OX Forge knife by Charlie Ochs is what I would own although MIcrotech's UDT copy isn't bad...
