    I have recently gotten an Edge Brand knife from my Grandfather, and I want to know how old it is, what type of knife it is and how much it is worth, and general information about it. According to him, he has owned it for 30-40 years, and is in great condition. I have tried to look up the model number, on the side it has the number 4001, but I can't find it anywhere.It also says "EDGEBRAND SOLIGEN GERMANY" on the side. I will post some pictures to help identify it (i placed a quarter for a size comparison).

    Welcome to KF

    Edge was a mark used by US importer Gutmann Cutlery from the 1950s to, at least, the 1980s.
    Collector value is, probably, low...$40-$50 at a guess. They were made in huge numbers.
    The design of yours is fairly "generic" for the time...many German companies produced knives with similar construction.
    I have no idea who made the Edge knives, though.
    There were various blade shapes.

    BTW, despite the low value, they were, mostly, good user knives.

    Thanks for the info, i wasn't looking to sell it I was just wondering the history behind it, so the worth doesn't really matter to me, being a knife collector and all

    Actually, getting it from your grandfather would, I guess, make it VERY valuable to you
