Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

I've seen over the years various charts ranking "the most popular brands" for certain time periods, but recognized these ranking are actually very subjective to each collector's own preferences.

So, let me ask you- what are your favorite knife brands?

Recently I am pursuing Shapleigh Hdwe, EC Simmons, John Primble/Belnap Hdwe, Robeson and Cammilus  knives.

Have taken delivery of 2 Shapleighs, 1 Belnap and 1 Robeson this morning, I got what I paid for. Pics to follow.

RUSSELL GREEN RIVER WORKS! These were my great uncle's Russell barlows, the Razor/ cotton sampler, one he customized for his EDC. He was a WW2 Navy sub. mechanic, in the Pacific, and later a machinist and fabricator. Not only was he amazing , not considering his skill. He was a friend, fishing and hunting partner, when I was a boy and young man. The cotton sampler is marked RUSSELL, (ARROW) GREEN RIVER WORKS, the pen blade marked RUSSELL. The other is marked RUSSELL , R between diamonds, on both blades. These will go to my son, he already has the hunting and fishing stories to go with them!

That's interesting Rick, I have always contemplated a Russell Green River Works knife. Don't have it yet but I do know a member who has one that's old, been stored and may part with it!

Hi Steve, I would go for it. The Russell barlows have very good carbon steel and have retained their value, even as interest in them, has wained. The cotton sampler has always interested me, as my Uncle never sliced anything, but hoop cheese and boloney with it. Since the cotton bole weeval has been eraticated in the south, this is definitely an obsolete pattern.

You know thats interesting Rick, I never thought of it that way! It really was what they used back then. My Grandfather never harvested cotton, but a fair amount of tobacco in the day!

Well , those old knives are a link to our family's past occupations , just as the WW1 and WW2 veterans bring backs are our tangible link to their place in American history. I would think the tobacco industry is nearly so!

I like Cattaraugus, Robeson, Kabar - Olean NY, Remington, and Camillus. Those are my favorite brands but I like all knives.

There are SOOOO many good vintage knives it is hard to pick just one.

I have been concentrating on Western Cutlery mainly because I lived just

few miles from them when I was a kid. Kind of a home town favorite thing.

Sure wish I would have paid more attention to them back then.
