A-Z index for Research & Resources

Some great Research and my thanks to the tireless work done by Sue OldsWidow. Check out that index, you just may be there for days! Also her research turned up an old resource that is worth revisiting if you have not seen.

Produced by iKC Member Tobais Gibson its a good reference for collectors: http://apg2k.hegewisch.net/index.html

I could not have said this better myself Mr Hanner!

Keith it is made by Anton Wingen, who also made knives under the name Othello and it is in the style called Canadian Skinner

There is a link HERE that will give you more info on them

G.C. Co was the importer, it is an early stamp used by a popular importer also known by them Gutmann Cutlery.  Gutmann was founded in 1947 and lasted until 1997 & was a major importer & distributor of knives & blades for approx forty years. From the early 1950's through the 1980's most of their knives were made in Solingen, Germany with some from Italy and Japan as well.

I have had this skinner for years and know very little about it. It is a Yukon hunter G.C. Company 047. Printed on the other side of the blade is: a face, underneath that Othello and under that Solinger and under that Germany. I would appreciate any help with origin and value. BTW this is my first time posting anything, I hope I'm doing it right.

Greetings all !! Although I haven't been here very long, most folks know who I am, Robert Anthony Paolantonio, third generation owner, stockholder, and only Cutler from the second and third generations of the one and only original factory, Colonial Knife Company, Inc. Also RAP Cutler, and Heritage Cutler's.....

My new friend and recipient of my book "My Family Business"  Mr. Gus Marsh has compiled the most honest and acurate assesment of the company and family's history. The only error Gus was a small misspelling of grandpa Fred's home town in Italy, which was Frosolone, Italy...other than that Gus has done a spectacular job in his research!!  Here is Gus's paper..dated  5-8-2013...

I'm looking for a history of Kissing Crane and it's current status. I know Robert Klaas was the originator but is now its own entity. I'm looking for current maufacturing and its location(s). Can't find much of anything on the Net.
