I question if that could be a very early Ted Dowell knife, he singes his knives TMD just like that on the handle, I bet he would like to see a photo of her.
He is still making knives, you could reach him at 541-382-8924. His address 139 NW St Helen's Pl, Bend Oregon 97701. He sold his first knife in 1967

Thanks for posting her up, a very interesting knife.

Thanks, Ed, I'll follow up on it...they both appear to be very well made and came from an old collection on west coast. Ed

The first one I can't help you with, the second is in fact a ted dowell. Nice knives, if I was home I could tell you the first one but my references are not at my disposal right now, any help out there?

Ok, i'm at the willow bow so I have all the references in the world, the first one with the JM mark is a Jeff C. Morgan knife, most likely 440 c. My refernce is old but hes war a guild member and working out of Santee Ca. A look at the guild directory should give you updated info. Nice knife by the way!

Jeff Morgan indeed. I have a knife I bought straight from the man at the Solvang knife show about three years ago. He was a really nice fellow, and all of his knives were very affordable. None exceeding 400 dollars in price. I bought one of his bowies for 150 dollars.
