I haven't seen a knife like the last one pictured. Is it a Catt also?
Hi . yes its a # 12124 dog bone catt its very rare. got it from 54rodgers a few years ago
It is an interesting one. When I searched on the web, it brought me a description on an Antique & Collectible knives page that said it is from the 1930's. I am just wondering if anyone has a catalog picture?

No picture of a 12124 but Ferguson has a picture of a 12114 that I would like to find. 4 5/8 inch odd looking tooth pick but no dog bone bolster.

Here is the book that I have and a scan of the knife that JKB mentioned. I did not find your "dog bone" knife listed in it though. Maybe it might be in another catalog?

How do you keep that Ferguson book so nice looking? Mine is all grungy and dog eared and the pages are all loose. We just had about 14 inches of snow and I am getting cabin fever. I really need a good auction.

I am sure it will get dirty over time. My Goins book is already practically falling apart... :shock: I love the knife books & don't mind buying them when I have a couple extra bucks to spare.

That coke bottle has a blade etch that says something like "Stern & Chenoweth, Hand Forged _________ted."
