Vintage from before 2000


Vintage pocket knife, two blades, celluloid handle, please read Item Details

On sale! This fine vintage pocket knife was made by Cattaraugus Cutlery Co, Little Valley, NY. The folding knife has two blades, including a nail file on one of them. The handle looks like celluloid or some other composite; it's shining gold and silver, translucent in spots.

Cattaraugus made highly collectible knives from 1886-1963. This knife has stamps on both blades but no model number. I'm not sure of the age but I'd guess 1940s or earlier.

The knife handle is in very good condition, with no signs of deterioration and no cracks or chips. The blades open and close fairly easily, but it could use oiling. The blades have some scratches, nicks, and staining, and the tip on the nail file is blunted. The other visible metal on the knife also has some pitting and staining.

Size: The knife is 2 1/2 inches long (6.4 cm). The large blade is 1 1/2 inches long (3.8 cm), and the short blade is 1 1/4 inches (3.2 cm).
