Winchester Truck and Knife Combos

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 Truck and Knife Combos

Post by 1967redrider » Thu Jul 25, 2019 7:38 pm

Anyone have any Winchester truck and knife commemorative sets? I've got this 1895-1995 100th Anniversary of the Model 1895, the knife is made by Blue Grass. They did a really great job with the detail for the knife and truck in my opinion, even down to the spare tire. The knife and mud flap are serial numbered the same.

Not sure how many of these were made or what other Commemorative Sets might be out there, but post them if you have them. ::tu::

RR, I always like the looks of those trucks with knife, thankfully I've been able to resist so far. Just no room for them. But I sure like them. ::tu::

While the 1/25 or so these trucks are is a bit outside my range (I try to stay between 1/64 and 1/87 scales; since I don't have a whole lot of room; but I still manage to have lots of larger scale stuff) I've been looking at them quite a lot. My favorite variant of the Ertl Dodge Power Wagon casting was actually issued in the Case Deere line. Been meaning to get the truck itself (don't like the knife at all; there's just something about the combo of white bone and green printing) for awhile now. Schrade did a lot of Ertl items with knives included--been meaning to get some of those as well.

But I really like both the truck and knife in that set. Great graphics on the truck, and the knife looks quite classy. Packaging is great too. For stuff this large and fragile, I typically just leave it in the box.

Thanks for your replies, this is the only Winchester one I have seen. Case does a ton of these things, pretty much yearly.
