No this was from back in the 80s when his knives were made in Japan and he made Frost Wood/Zebra Wood/Pakawood scales famous.
At one time he had quality manufacturing facilities overseas and they made a great knife for a reasonable price.
I wholeheartedly agree that the Frost and Parker brands could be on some really nice knives that were fairly priced. Here are a Frost and a Parker from around the era you mention, holding their own with a Valley Forge.
Ah, the old days.
