Winchester Straight Razors

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.

Winchester Straight Razors

Anyone collect Winchester razors?

I happened to pick this one up because it had a "K" etched in the handle, by a previous owner, representative of my last name so I decided to bid on it. Handled in faux ivory, the blade is cracked but would probably still do the job if one was so inclined to shave with a straight razor, which I am not. ::paranoid::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
