The Other Brands

The Camillus Cutlery Company was one of the oldest knife manufacturers in the United States with roots dating back to 1876. The company manufactured Camillus branded knives and was a prolific contractor for other knife brands up until its last days in 2007 when the company filed for bankruptcy.

These are all knives made by Adolph Kastor and his brothers. They started in 1876 making knives which include the posted knives and Camillus knives. They had dozens of brands. TJ posted a link to the list of them at the beginning of this thread. Here is is http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/knifewor ... orlist.pdf

I'm the one off topic Carmillus. Probably the Morleys don't go here. Here is a Dunlap 1920- 1930s to get back on topic.

Question to experts - what time period and what patterns Camillus made knives for Case?

Vit,

I think that Camillus (and also Utica) did make some contract knives for Case after WWII, however, in order to get more accurate information I would suggest that you post your question in the Case forum. I believe that knifeaholic would be able to supply particulars. The answer may be in his book, however, I don't have it handy at the moment.

There is a thread in one of our forums where knifeaholic listed the Case patterns that were contacted to Camillus but I haven't found it yet. Sill looking.

Collecting Case Knives is the books name.

Let me jump in here and answer Vit's last question.
knifaholic's book is "Collecting Case Knives", in fact there is now a 2nd edition of Mr. Steve Pfeiffer's work available. I haven't gotten the new one yet but the 1st edition is full of information and color pictures.

I bought the second edition of this book. I need a lot of time for a thorough examination, but I can say straight away that this is a grandiose work ::tu::.
Treefarmer, thanks for the hint ::handshake:: .
