Vintage Merrill Style Knives by Al Cohen(c. 1972)
These are most likely made by Al Cohen who brought the rights from Merrill. Al’s knives have brass ends while the original Merrill knives were a silver colored metal. The first batch Al had made were fantastic and as good as the original Merrill’s. Later batches weren’t as well made.
They look and feel genuine, but I cannot be certain. That being said they are a wonderful set and move very smoothly in your hands. And they look authentic too. These are easily as nice as the Joe Mogar knives I’ve used for years, and maybe even better. They also look like real knives that you could buy from the hardware store.
These are quite old so there is some tarnish showing on the brass. Just makes them look more realistic if you plan on actually using them.
