Cattaraugus Pattern Number Guide

Cattaraugus Cutlery manufactured knives from 1890 to the mid 60′s.  On each knife they stamped a factory pattern number.  Click here to Learn about Cattaraugus’ numbering system.  This reference guide will list most of the folding knives that were manufactured by Cattaraugus along with descriptions, pictures, and names that the knives go by.

Many Cattaraugus knives share the same pattern number. This seems to be the norm on knives that were discontinued before the company went out of business.  The pattern numbers that were assigned to a knife that was discontinued was often reassigned to new introduction.  Because of this, we have listed the patterns by their full pattern number rather than by the factory pattern number.

Below, you will find some pictures of a few Cattaraugus knife patterns.  They are separated by blade count ascending.
