A history of the Russell Cutlery, its owners, its growth and its products is described fully in this booklet called "Those Green River Knives". John Russell founded the Green River Works in 1834 in Greenfield, Massachusetts. Using the Green River for water power, he produced various knives for hunting and skinning. These knives became world famous and were prized in the United States wild frontier. Each blade was stamped with Green River which symbolized the high quality of its manufacture. The company is now located in Southbridge, Massachusetts and is known as Dexter-Russell, Inc.
