Well of course I had to search it up after being told not to! Lol. Thanks for adding that nugget to the conversation - it really throws an ominous tone on the term ‘gaff knife.’ :shock:

And here's a 3-1/2” celluloid Ulster cattle salesman's knife. Number MK 35UK on back side. It's from a display board that was part of the Schrade factory collection.

I like Stabber Jacks ! The full saber grind makes for a more interesting knife. The Cattle knife is more recent than the jacks. Do you think Schrade-Walden might have made this Cattle knife ?

Thanks Roland. More like Schrade/Ulster in Ellenville since it does look like a newer knife. Only the main blade is stamped, hardly any swedges, etc.
I do have an Ellenville Knife Co. cattle knife that I'll post at some point.

Here is a 2 5/8" Ulster Knife Co. 3 blade senator. Very sweet knife, at least 80 years old. Senator is my favorite pattern.
