Founded in 1844 Lamson & Goodnow is the oldest American cutler still in business. Well known to Civil War collectors as contractors for the manufacture of the Lamson - Goodnow & Yale infantry rifle musket, the Shelburne Falls cutler has produced all manner of cutting utensils since its inception with one of the most enduring products being their classic serrated backed, clip point fish knife with the bold diamond checked American walnut grip. While the basic blade design of the Lamson fish knife is still in production, the grips are now smooth. Aside from the classic look of the earlier knife, many a wet handed old-timer has lamented the lack of the course diamond cut of the vintage grips. We have acquired two old-model Lamson fish knives from old store cutlery stock and are offering them here individually priced. Original and as new measuring 8 7/8 inches in total leingth with the just post war LAMSON STAINLESS STEEL / MADE IN U.S.A. blade marking and original early grip design, this knife will make a welcome user addition to the tackle box or is worthy of display as a collector among period fishing gear or cutlery. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
