    Hello Everyone,

    First off thank you to everyone for taking the time to view this thread and any insight that can be offered. I have combed the internet pretty thoroughly and believe these to be at worse semi-custom knives but believe them to be customs. If any assistance can be provided with ID on maker or model I'd greatly appreciate it. I picked these all up for pretty cheap. Hoping there is some decent stuff, already satisfied with most of it.

    The knife in images 1 and 2 have Phill Hartsfield's mark on them, or at least a forgery of it. I have no idea whether or not he actually made that knife. If you post your images so they appear on the page, I'm sure someone who knows will chime in.

    Thank you for your help and posting the pics! I wasn't sure how the images would be posted if i pasted the URL. I didn't see any attachment options for posting. But think i figured out a way. Pics should be below.

    Looks like a Hartsfield Zahid Special.

    I like the second knife the best by far. Just to throw out a guess, I'll say Russian, or possibly Nordic.

    No idea on the 4th knife.

    These are clearly marked with the maker and it doesn't appear they are production knives. Maybe semi custom due to the handles ? I am not familiar with the makers and their websites look a bit outdated with no current pricing namely the G. Hicks Knife. The Spencer Knife I was not able to find a matching marking on other "spencer" knives.
