@Merlin: Brother the knife is made in Sialkot (Punjab) some 30 km from the place mentioned by bro junaid86. The manufacturing company name is M.A.Asar and company. They are amongst the largest knife and daggers exporters to United States from Pakistan. Once i met their CEO in the flight to USA. He was approaching to Chatnuga, USA. for the knife business. He invited me to his factory in Pakistan and being from the same city I visited them on my return from USA. Saw many such kind of knives. Most surprising I saw there the daggers used in Holleywood movies like Rambo and others many they explained.

@marvin vs our brother avais is right about the origin of your knife.I think the company mentioned here has a web site also and it was mentioned by one of our members,if i am not wrong by Denovo and he made us some knives from them with PakGuns logo.

Avais Bhai; I think this knife is not made in Sialkot. This the copy and made in Wazir Abad. Because the steel is telling the whole story.
But no doubt the Sialkot made knife are by all means better and export level product.
I have knife with me gifted by your father 15 years ago, still in good condition even under my use around the calendar and always in my hunting kit. I will try to post the picture of said knife; I have all my good hunting stories and memories with that knife.

avais bro what does your experience says regarding these knives do they remain sharp after few months service in hunting ?
like buck ?
or they become dull like many others locals do ?

Dear Afzaal brother, buck is one of the greatest knife. However our export quality good knives are equally good. It depends what steel you are opting. 460 steel is good in sharpness. Very sharp edges needs a proper care. These do not be used on bones or hard object. Now our exporters are also using damascus steel for knives (one of the top rated knife) but these are too expensive. I have seen some small knives made in Pakistan ranging from 5k to 50k made of damascus steel and precious handels. I dont dare to buy such an expensive knife.

Avais Bhai the knife in the pictures is gifted by your great father in Jan 1995. Knife was everywhere with me on hunting country wide.
Other than Markhore the knife is witness for all Hilal hunts shoots since long time. Still in good condition; to write the hunting stories on my hunting book with 440 steel blade.

Maybe Jillanik brother but some individual units have special values other than that of market and availability.
