Edge knives were a German import in, I think, the 80s....maybe into the 90s.
While they were a good knife, values are low.
I am guessing, but I suspect yours wouldn't sell for any more than $40-$50. They are not a collectible. Yet, at least.
The biggest obstacle in the search for Truth is the belief that you have it, already

Very old question - hope you are still around.
Edge Brand were made in West Germany, and imported to the US in the late 1950's through the 1980's, IIRC. They varied in quality, but some of the fixed blade hunters were very good. Some were carried in Vietnam by US troops as personal weapons.
I recently saw a few stag handled hunters in fine condition with sheaths selling online at $120-$150.
Those with verifiable military use can be quite expensive.

Enjoy it.

Bringing up an old thread.
I carried an Edge Brand 048 knife during my service in 'nam in '67-'68. Still have it and use it occasionally when camping. I had my parents "blue" the blade and paint the handle before sending it to me. Over the years the paint has come off but I did reblue it (using cold blueing) before I hung it on the wall.

Good grief! - another thread from the past.

Good to see your old 'nam blade still giving sterling service - suggest you attach some memorabilia and a brief history of it to pass onto an appropriate grandchild - I'm sure he/she will value it immensely.
I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!
