Some Cattaraugus Items

The Cattaraugus Cutlery Company was started by John Champlin and his son Tint in 1882. It was first incorporated under the name J.B.F. Champlin and Son as a wholesale distribution company based in Little Valley, New York. The business proved to be a successful endeavor, and it soon branched into a knife production company named Cattaraugus.

Very recently I obtained another CATTARAUGUS CUTLERY COMPANY pocket knife box/display.
The spring was used to hold the pocket knife that was on display, in place.
In this case it would've been a, according to the label, pattern #22459 pocket knife.
It's in good+ condition and it will display nicely.
It measures 2 3/4" X 4 5/8" X 2 1/2."

***** The Measurements Of The Other Cattaraugus Box That I Posted
Were Wrong. It's Exactly The Same Size As This Box. *****
Here's The Link To My Other Cattaraugus Pocket Knife Box/Display:

Nice.....
Thank you Ken.🍻
I have a few boxes that I need
to find the "go with" pocket knife.
It's just another fork in the road of collecting.

This knife has iron bolsters and iron back springs, probably as old as the box.

That's awesome, Dimitri! Really cool the way they marked the knife purse snap and that pen is outstanding. ::tu:: ::tu::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

Very cool, thank you for sharing these great pictures... so for us younger folks ::paranoid:: can someone explain what a "four finger throw" is?
The picture brings back memories of me and my bro trying to "stick" our knives back in a day
Thanks...

If you look at the boy on the right, he is measuring with his fingers how high the knife stuck.

How's this for a piece of Cattaraugus and cutlery history, original bank note with a picture of JBF Champlin, Cattaraugus founder and the one that started the Case family in the cutlery business, on the front!! Looks more like a bank note than a check!!
