Welcome Home....

Hi Guys, I have a knife that I purchased a few years ago that is hand scribed on the blade," Handcrafted by H A Beauchamp". I found a G Beauchamp custom maker. Is this the same maker or possibly a coincidence? I can post pics as this knife is very similar to the G Beauchamp with a nice scrimshaw Eagle and mirror polished blade.

Thanks for any input.  Mike

Next on my list, although that may be harder if that's possible. I was so sure we had the info on that and that Gaeton emailed back and forth several times. he thought it was his originally then wanted to see the eagle scrimshaw and he emailed back right away and said no not mine and gave me the pic of his work. Very nice guy and some beautiful knives too.

That's ok. Thanks a bunch Steve

It is a real nice knife and I believe it is a custom made job for someone as it is serial numbered. I will keep looking and someday ya never know.  Mike

ps any info on the Japan T Duty designed knife?

Well, sadly I did hear back from Gaeton and he said knife was not his work and he does not know who would have done it. No relation or anything that he knows of. He did include pics of the knives he makes and the scrimshaw that he does.

Hope to hear possibly by tomorrow. but that does give us an idea about the stamping. He just has to be sure Eagle is his.

Great! Hope he can identify this as one of his. Thanks Steve

Well I heard from Gaeton, today and he was very accommodating. He did tell me something interesting: Sometimes for a customer, he will carve their initials into the blade. So the HA maybe the initials of the first person who actually bought the knife from Gaeton.

He has requested a picture of the knife which I will send to him today. he said he will identify if the knife is his. Stay tuned, as they say, more to come!

I agree knife looks almost brand new and in great shape. You have had it for a few years so has to be someone of more recent decent. Will keep checking, a few of our master sleuths are on vacation so I am a feeble back up, but it is fun to try!

Yep,

I found many from attorny's to knife makers. I am not sure if this is a 1900's knife as it looks too new and the gaurd looks like a machine made one.I don't think gaurds were mass produced way back then but maybe. The inscription looks like a high speed cutter too. On the other side of the blade it has SN 0040 in the same script too. Maybe another custom maker we don't know of and I have had this for 10 years so who knows?

Thanks and if anyone sees anything I sure would appreciate it.  Mike
