Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson came from old New England families. Horace learned the firearms trade while working at the National Armory in Springfield, Massachusetts. Daniel’s experience came from apprenticing with his brother Edwin Wesson, the leading maker of target rifles and pistols in the 1840s.
Smith and Wesson is best known for its line of quality guns, but they have introduced many new knives to their lineup of ever expanding products. Smith and Wesson knives are proudly made in the USA and are used by professionals everywhere such as Military, firemen, and policemen.
