I think General Housewares is public. They make Chicago Cutlery among other things. I'm not aware of a public company in the sporting knife industry. The industry is really too small to support public companies. The entire annual sales of the sporting knife industry would represent a decent month's sales for a largish computer manufacturing company. Take care.
I wish some of the big players in the industry would go public. As the Gun Grabbers continue to go nuts, I think companies like Benchmade, Spyderco, CRKT, Emerson and REKAT have explosive growth potential.Plus, think of how much fun it would be to go to one of their stockholders meetings
