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.

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

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!
