Here is my contribution to the Utica thread. Frontide tang stamp is : "PAT. PEND" over "UTICA CUTLERY CO." over "UTICA N.Y." on both blades. The backside master blade tang stamp is :"30". Would anyone have any idea when this one might have been made?

Starting around 1930 Utica patented a series of bolster designs, I have seen three different ones.

So I would date the knife to the 1930`s , they were not a big seller and were eventually discontinued certainly by the start of WWII.

Thanks M.B. for the information. Looks like I need to do a little more digging on Utica myself. My curiousity about all these particular aspects of different knife companies keeps getting stronger with knives that I run into and see here. What a great place to learn! Thanks again! I am a little suprised that they were`nt great sellers though.....the knife is very eye appealing to me.

Here are a couple of uncommon Utica Lockback Folding Hunters, top is black composite of some sort and the bottom is great old Utica bone.

Everyone,
Thanks for checking them out. Bob, both knives are built with a little more heft than a Cattaraugus King of the Woods, heavy duty liners and a serious backspring and blade.
