Show off your Winchester Knives

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.

Don't get to see many of those Bert. Very nice. Thanks for showing it.

A few more more contemporary Winchesters (contract knives).

Looks like each of these purports to be a Winchester (& I think they do pretty good):

I have only these two which I think were both made by Queen. According to MichaelWayneSexton ( from whom it was purchased), the 2904 1/2 Trapper with Italian jig bone was made using the same frame that was used for some of the Case Classics (62007 1/2, for example) which I believe were also made by Queen under contract to Case. (I really have no idea; I'm just parroting what I was told.)

Regardless of which company actually made it, however, it's a very fine knife...well built with a gator snap. I love the double sabre grind and swedge on the master clip blade, too.

This little Delrin Mini Trapper is not as high quality as the larger Trapper, but it's not horrible either. I'm not a big fan of Delrin, but the construction is decent...similar to late 80s/early 90s Case knives, IMO.
