Found another Cattaraugus yesterday.

Cattaraugus Kitchen Knife 13 1/4" OAL with a 8 1/8" Blade and maybe Rosewood Handles?

Any idea as to the age of this knife or any of the others shown above?

Thanks. No, I'm hoping someone will come along and answer that question.
Also looking for the handle material. Not sure if this is the original.

That hole is there so a chef can choke up on the knife and maintain a firm grip.
It's a balance thing... I couldn't find a good example in images but the idea is the same.
