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.

Gary, that's a very nice one. Beautiful bone on it.

Since Gary broke the ice on the new Winchester Forum, I'd like to add a few from the late '80s that I believe were made by Queen.

I believe this is the only Winchester I have and it's not an old one.

Below is a 1992 3-¾" closed Winchester W3049½ three blade, threaded & Crimped Bolsters. "Waterfall Celluloid"
I rescued this guy about 4 years ago. The lady at the swap meet I purchased it from said she does not remember where she got it from but that it has been in the box for years at her home.

This Winchester is a good example of how Celluloid Outgassing can affect the steel blades, bolsters, pins and frames but the handle will survive just fine. Only a little minor shrinkage at the bolsters.
The best way to store this little stick of dynamite is with the blades open and away from all his friends.

Here's my only older original Winchester I have.
The oldies are a bit difficult to find here on the West Coast. (At least for me)
Pattern #2933. 3" Bone Handle, one large Spear and one Pen, nickel silver tips, shield and liner.
Blades are snappy and tight. (No half stops)

I posted these on an Abalone thread already, but since there's now a Winchester forum . . .

Do Blue Grass Winchesters count? ::shrug::

Many appealing knives being shown here. Am especially drawn to FRJs Whittler and Redrider's abalone.

I don't have any old Winchester knives but I do have this Blue Grass Black Box reproduction of the old pattern 1920, previously a Napanoch I believe. If I can find it this knife is available, albeit reluctantly so, as I do love this stag. 1991 mfg.

Hi Ho Silver, And Away!
Got to post mine! Just waiting on a big tool sell off. Should have enough for a new camera and one or too knice knives...
::facepalm:: :roll:

Just checked my laptop folders. Have quite a few to go...
First off;
Me 5" Blue Grass Cutlery, Burnt Orange Bone, de-swinged, cokebottle. I think either 1998 or 1999. Beast of a knife! Scary sharp. Bones are rogers jigged pattern. I guess queen purchased the rights and process to it back then, 30 years ago. I carryed it a bit. Great cardboard destroyer!
More to come!
