I was recently asked what does the acronym or abbreviation NKCA stand for on knives. Really great question! So I thought I would make a great topic for this months blog.
NKCA stands for National Knife collectors Association. This association began in 1972 when a group of collectors, working at knife shows in Kentucky and Tennessee, began to realize there was a growing number of knife enthusiasts and collectors. They decided to band together and form a club that would expand this growing trend from a hobby into what they hoped would be a profitable business.
One of our passions here at Hers and His Treasures is collecting US made knives. This month we are featuring one of our favorite companies W.R. Case & Sons. So here is little background history.
This companies roots go back to 1889 when the Case brothers William Russell, Jean, John and Andrew Case began selling cutlery from the back of a wagon in small New York villages.
