Thanks for the info, it looks like Edge spent more money on the blades for the brass plated stilettos.

The catalog pieces you posted are $20 Asian pieces. Now you're talking about a totally different animal https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintage-E ... Swju9ah1Fo

the first edge co. stiletto kits were made by f.beltrame & fam.the actual design was by frank b. himself,who then patented it and named it 'THE ATLAS' after edge co. suffered large financial reversals by the wrong arm of the law(reachin' pete) they started importing ATLAS knock offs from asia at a MUCH lower price.still they went toes up soon after.-G

I had no idea (memory) of them selling higher-end pieces, but I just learned (or, re-learned) something new. None of the 4 I bought were stamped anything about Edgeco. My confusion is now pretty much solved.

I lived in Buffalo, NY then. It was the only way to get a switch. The Edge catalog was a cool deal for me. It went right in my bathroom (reading room) as soon as it came in the mail.

i put mine together right out the mailbox on the front steps!lol!

...That's my confusion. A knife bought from the Edge Company that's got an "Asian" stamp, is still considered an EdgeCo knife? (As my earlier example).
