EGW (Ezra G. Waterman) Knives

Good Afternoon!Supposedly one of the 'popular' private purchase knives in WWII, was the EGW knife.I stumbled across these recently, and have tried to learn what I can of them, and it seems that there were several models, or types.  Of course I have not been able to get a good description of each model or type.So far, I have learned that there were at least 3 (maybe 4) blade lengths, three styles of handles, four  styles of notches, and the ricasso markings were also varied.  I believe that the…See More

Hey man...thanks for the friend request...of course I accepted! As for sending private messages, this is just fine - but if you truely want to send a private message - use the iKC email - upper right hand corner of your page in the area of your name, sign out, Fried requests, etc...

I wanted to start a formal stand-alone CFK group, but I could not accurately gauge  if it would be accepted or not - so I started the it as a sub-group in the Box Full of Knives Box of Knives. I'm glad i did - as I commented to Lead Left Knife Guy , I seem to be the only one playing in that sand box at the moment, and I'm not sure my ego could manage no one join a group!  LoL!

Right now it looks like it's just my thread....but if you add a post to it, then it will be as it is intended - a place to appreciate the CFK/iPAC brand.
