"Western was kind of an off set of Case family that went west....One got consumtion and needed the dry air....We do have a lot of INPUT in our Library on this site.....That is a newer knife "

"In the book, The Knife Makers Who Went West by Harvey Platts, page 178, they talk about the different Fish Fillet Knives. If they have a full bevel grind and full width of  steel blade, they are S-W766. It doesn't say, but my guess is that…"

"Hi Steve. Thanks for your research into my question. I don’t know how you found that out; but that’s interesting. Could it be that Camillus made a lions share of these fillet knives; because, except for a very few, these blades all have…"

Western Fillet Knife

Have been doing some research on a Western Fillet knife; but I’m not finding any answers. Time to ask the pros. The subject knife is a Western (duh) fillet knife, with a 6” blade, and 11” overall. It is stamped W766, with an “F” code. What I’ve learned, or think I’ve learned is that it’s a Model W766, that was made in 1982. But what I also encounter is that by far, most of these model 766 fillet knives are marked S-W 766. Does anyone here know what, or why the difference with a knife with just…See More
