    I bought this one at a flea market for .50 cents years ago.
    Made by Dan Valois, his company is still in business, and still makes belt buckle knives.
    Just not this old handmade one.

    EDIT: The Above makers info is incorrect.
    Thanks to Piraticalbob in post #4 for pointing out the actual maker.

    Marked DAN-D Yuma AZ with a cloverleaf trademark.
    Daniel Dennehy, known as DAN-D knives with the shamrock logo was a member of the Knife Makers Guild. He passed away in 2011.

    The knife has a 3 ¾” double edge blade, ground concave on the back.
    It is expertly ground, fitted, and finished.

    The handmade brass buckle has a twisted wire edge, and a polished stone contoured to fit the palm of the hand.
    In all, it provides a very secure grip and would be an effective push-dagger.



    I never had the special belt / sheath for it, and have no desire to get one.

    1. The buckle knife would be illegal when concealed inside a belt in most jurisdictions in the country. :scrutiny:

    2. I would have to unbuckle my pants to get the knife out if I ever did have to use it. :uhoh:

    3. That would result in my pants falling down. :eek:

    4. And then I would have to do the Bunny Hop to run away! :what:

    I think the OP is misinformed on the knife ID. DAN-D with a shamrock was the logo of the late custom knifemaker and Navy veteran Dan Dennehy. If you bought one of his knives for fifty cents, then you got yourself a true bargain.
