Robo wrote:I believe I have solved the mystery of this unusual 61098 pattern. It is a large Tickler Case contracted from Schatt & Morgan. It wouldn't make sense for Case to have two distinctly different Handle dies for the pattern. It WOULD make sense for them to contract a bunch from their Neighbors at S&M. Why? In order to offer a large Tickler with a saber grind blade? To fill a production gap? S&M gave them a deal they couldn't refuse? That's the mystery but the surviving examples are the fact. Below is a very well preserved example of The S&M I recently acquired. Queen City continued to make the big 5.5" But I believe production ceased going into the "Queen" Era. It seems Landers Frary & Clark also contracted this knife from S&M or QC. CHEERS and thanks to all who pitched in on this.
