What is the difference between the Imperial Kamp King knives and the Hammer Brand USA? The Hammer brand seem to sell cheaper on ebay. There must have been a lot of these knives made as I see a lot of both brands fairly cheap. Are these both carbon steel? I guess they are as I see rusted examples of both brands.
Imperial and Hammer Brand in most cases were the same knife with different tang stamps. Imperial bought the Hammer Brand in the thirtys. About the same time they licenced the patent for the stamped and crimped steel handles wrapped with a thin cover. I believe the shell handles started about 1936. I have two Imperial Hammer Brand knives with real bolsters and regular style handles. I had an Ulster Hammer Brand for about five minutes, but can't recall how it was built. Hope this helps.
All I know is the fleamart vendor said most of those knives in that drawer are advertising knives & they're $5 apiece. The Kamp King didn't have any ads on it so I got it, brought it home, cleaned it up, then snapped it's picture. As you probly guessed it was slim pickens that day.
Here are four of them: First is my grandfather's knife.This is the first knife ever to inflict a wound on me at the age of eight(I'll be 67 shortly).SCARY sharp and it still is after all these years. Second is one I picked up for a dollar. Third is another one with more colorful handles(sort of a copper color). Last is a Super Kamp King;haven't seen too many of these around.
Wosey that's a cool looking knife no matter what. I really enjoy seeing these Kamp Kings. Not a knife I ever paid any attention to but I remember seeing plenty of them in the sporting goods stores when I was a kid. Nice thread.
