Acme United Re-Launches Camillus Cutlery

Camillus booth at 2009 Shot Show

The Camillus booth at the 2009 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas.

At last week’s National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, the world renowned Camillus Cutlery was re-launched.

This may not seem like a big event at first, but if you know a little bit about this Company’s history, it is. For more than a hundred years, Camillus was dedicated to produce the finest knives available.

In 2007 however, due to fierce overseas competition, Camillus filed for bankruptcy and closed its doors. The product brand names and intellectual property of the company were acquired by Acme United Corp. (ACU – $8.10).

Now Acme re-launched the brand at the 2009 National Hardware Show. It’s actively showing the line to customers, which will hopefully result in first revenues for Camillus in the second half of the year.

With Camillus Cutlery, Acme is bringing a legendary brand back to life. We believe this is a good decision which will be positive for Acme’s results.

    I owned a Camilus Cuda Maxx, 5.5 folding bowie. It was my absolute favorite large folder. I was showing the knife to some “friends”, and mysteriously the knife “got legs”. I have been trying to locate one ever since. Can anyone tell me where i can obtain one? Any help will be much appreciated!!
    Thanks, Rocco
