Just got this one from Ebay for $4.99. I'm sure it was a bargain. I hope...:+) I has not been sent to me yet, I will get better photos of it when it arrives.


Description: HAMMER BRAND PEARL HANDLE - MEASURES APPROX 3.5" WHEN OPEN. GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. HAS SOME MINOR WEAR.

Question: What is the name they give these bottle type shape knives ?

UPDATED PHOTOS

I won this one from Ebay ($15.00).

Description: An extremely rare Hammer Brand pocket knife. It has a unique blade with the base functioning as a bottle opener. It has a Pointer dog on each side of the handle and is beautiful. Blade is sharp and in excellent condition

Tang Stamp: HAMMER BRAND USA Along With Two Pattern Numbers under the knife stamp!

Question: Is it rare Hammer Brand Knife ?

Thank you all in advance for any help you can give me. I love learning from you people.

I like the knives. I don't know much about Hammer brand. The first knife looks like a bowling pin (not a pattern name I'm sure) and the second a fishing knife. The later has a scaler on the top of the blade and a bottle opener for when the fish aren't biting. :) s-k

I posted this one already by it self but I thought I would toss it into this thread. Since I asked to post your "Hammer Brand" knives.

Early Hammer Brand 4 Blade Pocket Knife (Kamp-King without the shield)

Knife has multi- colored scales and brass liners. Knife is marked Hammer Brand USA. Large blade has been sharpened but not excessively. Knife measures approximately 3 3/4 inches in closed position.

Hey Draac, I think you gave fair money for all these you won. The first is a bowling pin knife, they came on a Display card with huge bowling pins on it. They made these in many differing colors of celluloid. As well as the ones that looked just like pins, with red collars on them even. Here's a pic of the card. As to the dog toothpick, maybe someone else could chime in on that one. They made a lot of Kamp King knives. Here's mine. I call her green zebra! Also many of my Hammer Brand knives.

that's what I was thinking!
And the Shield isn't centered too well and is a little crooked..kinda makes it unique.
worth $3.00 I guess..

You will find that the fish knife is stamped Imperial!
They made them with 3 different scenes on them.

Imperial bought the Hammer Brand name from New York Knife Co. and began producing
knives with the Hammer Brand stamp in '36.

You won't be disappointed that it has the Imperial stamp!
Now you have a goal of acquiring the other two with scenes on them ::nod::

I need to up-date this pic since "Mr. Singin'' has me cleaning them up now :roll: (Perry! ::dang:: )

...... Joe
