A lot of exciting things happened in 1819. New York City got its first shipment of bicycles and Alabama was admitted to the Union as the 22nd state. But most importantly, Jacob Bromwell founded his house and kitchenware company, an establishment that is still making some of the finest daily essentials almost 200 years later.
Originally the oldest manufacturer of tin and stainless steel, Jacob Bromwell now crafts goods like the Traditional Pocket Knife. Based on the same design as the original model introduced almost two centuries ago with rivets that keep the tool tight and a smooth walnut handle. The pocket knife has a three-inch blade, and the whole blade was assembled by hand in the company's Vermont workshop. It's a traditionally crafted camping essential that screams "American craftsmanship."
