When I posted the topic of knife boxes LT & PAknives posted some ephemera so I thought I would start one just for the paper items, billheads, letters, calling cards, post cards, trade cards, catalogs etc. I love the graphics on some of these.

I will start with a few from a rare New York mark that H & J W King. Their trademark was a K inside of a crown. I have 2 knives from the company and I think they are sheffield made.

So if you have any so show us please do.

I started this post but never posted anymore after the first. I will start again and hope others will add to it.

Here are a couple of pages from an original Nagle ad.

David, your J.M.Vance label reminded me I had a knife made by them (or for them?). Hope it is O.K. to post it in this "paper" thread!?
Just to illustrate their amazing quality!
If not, I will delete with delight. :roll:

Are you kidding Charlie, knives are always welcome!!! PA you got some great stuff there.

That Andrew Case card is one I have seen before and wish I would have bid on when it came up, that was long time ago that I noticed it.

Since you put a Case in here is Andrew Case's calling card from Cattaraugus Cutlery. Indian girl on the front.

Also a Robeson Cutlery & Rochester Stamping photo with all the salesman throughout the country and a Christmas card from Robeson.

You are so right Charlie, Here are a few more. 2 Napanoch business cards and New York Knife Co calling post card. I picked up the NY Knife Co card at the Lakeland Florida show in Feb.

Those are some really nice examples of ephemera everybody. I especially like the Napanoch business cards, galvanic1882.
This is the only ephemera I own. It's a billhead for A. F. Bannister & Co. of Newark, NJ.

Wow! :shock:
The first knife is very impressive. I wonder if any modern knifemaker would ever take a crack at trying to make a reproduction. :lol:

2 years. That's incredible. I would imagine that they had more than one person working on the knife. Think about how long it would take for one person to do all that work by themselves!
