Winchester Knife Co Thread in Knife Lore

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 Knife Co Thread in Knife Lore

Just an FYI for those interested in Winchester: This thread under the Knife Lore forum has a lot of nice Winchester knives and good discussion - Be ashame for it to be lost so here’s the link : viewtopic.php?f=35&t=40153&hilit=Winchester

IMO maybe this should be pinned here if it can’t be transferred - just my 2 cents ::nod::

Anyway a Mod could move that thread or link the two forums somehow? Because you're right, there is a lot of great information and knives there.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
