Cutlery Catalog Images

Postby Beechtree » Mon Sep 01, 2014 12:59 am

Here are some vintage knife catalog images. If you have some to add, please do so.

Richards & Conover Hardware Co., Kansas City: These 6 plates date to 1914 and are from a salesman catalog. Probably all Ulster made, with one page listed as Ulster knives.

George Wostenholm & Son: This last plate is from a 1969 Seth Birdwell Cutlery pamphlet. The knife prices range from a single blade barlow for $3.00, the etched large stockman with buffalo horn handles at $12.00, and the Officers knife at $20.00

Thanks Beech,

I don't think I'd seen that particular Wostenholm farmers jack in a cut.I like these old cuts that show farmers jack patterns,and I expect others like it when they show the pattern knife they have.It allows verification and dating.

I appreciate the effort.

Here are a few more Ulsters to add to yours Mason, some more sold by Rich Con, with a farmer jack for wlf.

Very nice ad Catt. I like the content referring to the "Edelstahl".

In addition, a couple of Remington ads, one with some bullet knives and a neat electrician knife.

Here is a neat old one page ad from 1907 which features a variety of different makers including an uncommon "S & A" model (Sperry and Alexander) at the bottom of the page.

I enjoy these too,thanks for posting guys..Thanks for thinking of me Beech,you can call me Lyle.I didn't know Ulster was producing this pattern as late as 1942.

You'll notice a pattern in these cuts :) ,except one of a knife I traded.I'm fairly positive the ENDERES is Utica made,I have an ENDERES farmers jack,and it matches my Uticas.
