If that one sells at that price we will know P.T. Barnum was right! ::facepalm:: ::disgust::



I just found an old catalog cut showing that exact knife, the wholesale price to a dealer was $8.25 per gross!

That comes to a whole .05 cents each :shock:

No wonder they are so cheaply made how can a factory make them for less than .05 cents and still make a profit?? ::shrug:: :lol:

A couple oldies I found in the mail in the last couple weeks( had to wait to get out of the dang hospital to see em......grrrr).....worth the wai though. First one is an old Cattaragus Barlow recentely positivey identified by robinet(thanks again). Second is a rough but pretty Holley Mfg knife. One blade missing and the others worn out but pretty. Nice bone handles on both. The 1st Cat photos are from the previous owner... then I took a couple quick scans for a better look at the handles.

Hi Wullie,
I cant find any info on my old "Roberts" knife either. The one I have looks like the same stamp as yours except that there is no "Brothers" on mine. The master blade is stamped "Roberts Sheffield" and the secondary blade is stamped "Made in England". 3 inches long with the blades closed See photos.

Great knives everyone. I'm seeing some brands that I have never heard of. Love the older stags. Keep them coming.
