Charlie, I have a friend that has been trying to buy a collection with one in it for years but the guy won’t sell any of the boxes. All I know is that my friend said he lives in Virginia ::facepalm:: !

Couple more, Phoenix Knife Co and a Cattaragus marked Flylock, the tang stamp on the knife is missing the first letter "U" in the stamping. I have a larger Flylock marked the same way.

Super nice Mike ::tu:: ::tu:: ...

So I’m curious but I have a Flylock Bridgeport switch (actually looks to have the same handles).. I know Schrade was involved in Bridgeport but what was the connection of Flylock to Cattaraugus?? Contract work?

Thanks Lee yes I believe it was contract work. Never seen another auto marked Cattaraugus.

Here's a few Keen Kutter display boxes that I have. The tops flip up to store the knives for sale that are being displayed, there's penciled in sales notes added for the salesman. There's also a Keen Kutter button on the black display box that I found along the way.

Couple more, the Button box has 2 English jacks, one is a Robeson Salesman's knife and the other a Terrier.

The other is a Carrier Cutlery Eureka, the Eureka was one of the knives that was used to make the GEC Eureka's. Boy did GEC make a bunch of knives from that first pattern.

Mike. I thought your best knives would have been the first knives you showed. Guess I was wrong. Very nice. ::tu::
