Barry Adams sold them with those two markings in the 1990s. Not saying he added the wording but at one point he told me he did....He was ( and I think is) Adams Int'l Knife works....

I've had a lot of stilettos but never one with a stonewashed blade. New one on me.
Set your goals low and your standards lower and you're gonna have good luck with the girls.

Those blades are "drum polished," which is similar to stone-washing.

Thank you for all the good info especially the story on how the word was put on the blade. I also thought it made it suspicious as many lower end knives have similar styling on the blade. I'm relieved it's an AB. Even run of the mill , I paid 45 bucks for it and I'm very happy. Thanks again Bill.

Kushing:

You weren't "stung" when you bought this knife. It is a great collectible/letter opener.

Be happy.
