Published in the March, 2011 edition of KNIFE WORLD, this article deals with the variety of tang stamps used before 1947 by Adolph Kastor & Sons and their American factory, Camillus Cutlery Co., on their own knives as well as those produced on contract for other firms.
The list of identified markings available below in both PDF and Microsoft Excel (XLS) formats is being presented here as the most practical means of getting the complete list of tang stamps to our subscribers. Download them, print them out, use and enjoy them -- but please don't sell them or post them elsewhere; this is copyrighted material.
Eventually, we may choose to present the accompanying article here. For now, the only way to read the article that goes with these tables is to obtain a copy of the March, 2011 issue of KNIFE WORLD (available as a backissue, see here for more information).
