Default Anyone have info on these knives? (NWTF SPONSOR ONLY Knives)

Several years ago, my family had a friendship with a local small business owner that employed my former step-mother. I was fairly young at the time. He got me involved in the National Wild Turkey Federation, and we attended banquets local on 2 occasions and the owner was a sponsor for the local chapter, so we got a special table and such at the banquets. This table had a knife for each attendee.
Being young, I just stuck them in my collection of cheap knives and used one for a while hunting.
But I have got curious recently if these knives even have any value? They seem to be good quality, and was wanting to start using one again.

But before I do I was wondering if anyone had any information at all on them? I cant find anything.
Theres no marks indicating the maker, or country of origin, just a mark that they are stainless steel.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Anybody can stick the NWTF logo on any knife not necessarily endorsed by the Federation.

Unless you can find some documentation stating it is an NWTF endorsed knife then it isn't...Also not knowing the manufacturer of the knives hinders you greatly as the initial knife could have been worth a couple of dollars and probably not ever $35, $40 if he was given ten or twelve of them away for your table.

What year are you talking here? Any chance of contacting the donator of the knives and asking him?

They almost remind me of Anza Knives with the Dynawood handles but the sheaths are all wrong and of course are unmarked...My best guess is that they are Smokey Mountain Knife Works imports from India or Pakistan that he had engraved for the events.

No documentation, but these were provided by the NWTF for the banquet, not a private donor. Every sponsor table had them.

Im thinking like 2004ish

I figured they were probably cheap imports as well, but the blade is so thick and the quality of the sheath and handle is better then any I've seen.
