Logo of the Western Knife Company

The Western Knife Company was a manufacturer of hunting knives which began operations in Boulder, Colorado in 1896. The company is probably best known for its "Bowie" style hunting knives. The company was purchased by Coleman (the famous manufacturer of outdoor equipment) in 1984. Camillus Cutlery Company purchased Western in 1992. In February, 2007, Camillus closed as a result of bankruptcy due to the harsh competition from companies making cheaper knives in other countries. The Western brand and Camillus brand are now owned by the Acme-United group and manufactured in Asia.
