Welcome to the Forum. Post some photos, pls. Taylor Cutlery is the licensee that makes knives for S&W. Apparently you are describing a folder type knife, out sourced to Japan by Taylor for production. Taylor makes 1,000s of knives with S&W logos & markings, and they are submitted to S&W for selection for the S&W knife catalogs, etc. Many are not selected and wind up on the 2ndary knife market where they sell for a few dollars, or less. You might try contacting Taylor Cutlery to see if they have any info. on the knife. If you post some photos, we can see if it was ever listed in a factory knife or accessory catalog. Like everything, condition is the key to any value on a S&W knife. Ed.

The various bone versions usually bring around $45-$65 on eBay, and the turquoise one is in the $100-$125 range.
