Winchester knife pick.

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.

Hey Winchester folks. Thought you'd enjoy this knife pick. Don't see many of these. Only one I've ever seen in 40 years of collecting.
2-7/8" long, stainless, deeply stamped. I'm new (1 week) to AAPK . Enjoy.

Do you know if they were just "Winchester" or "Winchester/Case" stamped? Do you have one? Picture? Thanks. J.O'.

I have one of those. It was a give away on the kniveslive show about 15 years ago.

Here's a Case/Winchester 62091 with pick from 1990. This one happens to be Serial Number 0003.


Some really nice knives, JKB! ::tu::
