Green River Knives
Authentic Green River Knives from Crazy Crow. We have spent years researching and manufacturing the finest line of fur-trade era knives. A favorite among the Mountain Men, Green River knives were made in Greenfield, Massachusetts by J. Russell. The factory was started in 1832-34 to make butcher and kitchen knives. Close to 60,000 Russell Green River knives per year were shipped to the West for several years. Among the most popular is the Green River Scalper, Skinner and variations used by the American mountain man then, and that are available today.
These high carbon steel "Green River" knives and blades are identical to the ones used by our forefathers. They have been made by Russell Harrington Cutlery since the early 1800s and feature proven designs used as working knives for almost 200 years.
The mountain men, who opened the West, used the name Green River as a standard of quality for anything traded. Anything done "Up to Green River" signified first rate merchandise. These high carbon steel blades with beechwood handles have a remarkable ability to hold their edge and are stain resistant. They will serve you well.
Now manufactured in Solingen, Germany, the traditional styles of the Russell Green River Works knives continue to deliver the highest quality knives at reasonable prices.
