Here is an old Cattaraugus magazine ad I found on the bay.

here are a couple of CATTARAUGUS scouts. The first one is a salesman sample with different handles.

The whole idea of putting a compass on a slab of metal was crazy. I have a couple that the needle will change position if you tap the handle but not free wheeling.

JKB,

I have never seen it in print but, I believe you were supposed to take the compass out of the knife and hold it in your hand for it to work. I have several of these and the compass pulls right out with your fingernails. None of mine were ever glued in. This would account for the ones I have where the compass is missing. The bone after many years would shrink slightly and the compass would fall out :(

Paul,

I haven't seen a knife like the last one pictured. Is it a Catt also?
