  • Studebaker pocket knives?

    I received an email from a person seeking info on a Studebaker pocket knife her husband was given by a collector 20 years ago. Did Studebaker have 'em or were they aftermarket? Who's the go-to guy/gal for info on these? Looking for a name and contact info to pass along to her. Thanks in advance.

    I've seen a couple (over the years) advertized as part of the fob with the Studebaker, and or South Bend pocket watches.
    Never payd much attention to them...as you...weren't sure they were actually Studebaker stuff or watch dealer made stuff.

            I have a small (2 5/8 inch long) folding pocket knife with three sections (knife, file, scissors) that says "Studebaker Corporation..." on face/case. I am sure that it is an aftermarket item because it was made in China. In getting it out to check it and provide the information I discovered that it also has a small tweezer that slides into the end.

                Those....ain't pocket knives!
                Plus they look a little to "new" to be anything related to the Studebaker as we know it. Except...per the description says something about spring knife. Maybe they were made from old Stude leaf springs!?

                    Actually, I have seen several references to a couple of knife makers that did use Studebaker leaf springs for their hand-forged blades. In a book written by one of the knife makers (Ruana), he said he used the Studebaker springs "until they were no longer available". Interesting.

                    On one website a vintage Ruana Studebaker spring knife sold for $1250 bucks!
