I purchased this boot knife with clip on leather sheath in the 1970s. It is marked "BROWNE & PHARR, MAKERS, ATLANTA, GA". It is stainless steel with an overall length of six inches, a two inch cutting edge on the bottom and a one inch cutting edge on top. I've not heard of this maker before or since buying this knife. Does anyone have any information on Browne & Pharr? Are their knives collectible?

Never saw the like. But I know the brand. I was in Atlanta when they came out with the Browne and Pharr pocket knife - Cecil Pharr ran a gun store I hung out at - but I don't recall a boot knife. I guess it is "collectable" if you can find the right collector.

Wasn't there a little two blade pocket knife that you could take down? A couple of screws at the ends held it together like the EKA of Sweden knives.

Don't know about the maker or collectability, but that little guy is everything a boot knife should be and nothing it shouldn't. Perfect length and blade to handle ratio.

Yes, that is the Browne and Pharr knife that I recall.
