NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) is pleased to announce that renowned knife maker Camillus has agreed to sponsor the 2015 SHOT Show University at the Bronze level. Based in Fairfield, Connecticut, Camillus is one of the country’s oldest and most respected blade crafters, the company’s history going back to 1876. Today the company offers an extensive line of high-quality knives for a wide variety of applications.

“We’re excited to see one of this country’s premier knife makers support their retailers by helping to make the 2015 SHOT Show University possible,” said Patrick Shay, NSSF Director, Retail Development. “Their commitment to helping the people who sell their products succeed in bridging that gap between manufacturer and the front-line people working with the consumer is paramount to the success of all concerned.”

“We see SHOT Show University as a great tool for retailers to improve their business. From retailing to compliance issues, SHOT Show University is a valuable tool and we’re happy to support it,” said Mike Cioffi, Brand Manager, Camillus Knives. “We’re also excited to invite everyone attending SHOT Show University to visit Camillus at booth #15122 on Wednesday from 1-3 p.m., where Grady Powell and Jared Ogden from the military team on the hit show Ultimate Survival Alaska will be signing autographs and introducing their new knives.”

SHOT Show University is the premier event for firearms retailers, held the day before the show opens, on Jan. 19.
