The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Okay, how do I begin ?? Long before a nail file got a student expelled from school, there was a period of sanity when some schools actually sponsored the making of knives to support the WW2 war effort- I, as many of you know, do a lot of research on vintage knives as a hobby for other members, and I was unaware of this until a few days ago- I find this story fascinating, and a story with a real lack of hard information- I thought the story worth sharing~~~ This story will be picture and document enriched, so I will break it up a little-
1- an example of a knife made by Trade Schools, Huntington, West Virginia
2- an example of a knife made by Vocational School, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
3-the most prolific school in knifemaking-- The Crozier Technical High School of Dallas, Texas , who made by some reports, over 2000 knives for the fighting men will be discussed in my next installment- where the term " Texas Black Knife" originated.
