Show off your Winchester Knives

Winchester entered the knife market as a manufacturer in 1919 by acquiring two existing knife companies; Eagle Knife Co. of Connecticut & Napanoch Knife Co. of New York. Winchester stepped away from the market in 1942 to focus on war related manufactured products, but re-entered in the late 1980s by licensing its name to Blue Grass Cutlery. Blue Grass had high quality knives made by Queen Cutlery that featured the Winchester brand name for a handful of years until the license arrangement ran its course. Winchester eventually started licensing to other companies & now you will find the brand name used by several knife manufacturers by way of license agreements.

Those are awesome!!! ::tu:: ::tu::


I'm trying to figure out why antique Winchester knives are so scarce, given the number of pocket knives they produced? Working the E.C. Simmons angle to see if I can find some answers. If Simmons Hardware was taking all they could produce, under the Keen Kutter logo for 17 years, that might explain something. ::hmm::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

Redrider you could be onto something. I have a KK that Danno said was probably made by Winchester. I will post a picture of it soon. :)

Thank you Doglegg! I got that one in a trade with Ed Landers. I really liked it and was able to trade for it. Appreciate your comments. :)

Redrider I put my EC Simmons Keen Kutter probably made by Winchester in that thread. I think you may be onto something with your theory. :)
