Yeah that's what I'm leaning towards, they were just well done. the overall quality and aging is great...but these just stood suspect to me.

But, I don't want to accidentally right one off as fake, and it be real! x(

Not 100% but whenever you see uneven and misaligned tang stamps these are a pretty good reason to suspect that an item has been altered
I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!

Thanks for your input,
That's what made me suspicious. Normally the legit ones I see have very well done/fine stamps...these almost look like they were done letter by letter.

Were there any known manufacturers that did reproduction/replica/fake weapons? Or is there any way to find out who made these by chance?

Sheffield knife maker Fred James was one of the few whose identity was known.
Most makers of fake Bowies, like the makers of fake Rembrandts and fake Stradivarii, are at some pains to conceal their true identities. They are, after all, involved in what is essentially a criminal enterprise.
