Yeah, shame this isn't the page with the whittlers. Wouldn't you just love to see the whole catalog?

Those are all SWEET, but I really like the second one down in the middle column and the third one down in the left column. Image

I notice they all have stag or ebony handles. I also see that the catalog is by Smith Brothers Hardware Co. and not by Camillus. Perhaps Smith Bros used the term “stag” for “bone stag”, which these appear to be. Most of the 1920-1930 Camillus knives I have seen have had bone stag, wood or celluloid handles. I don’t recall seeing any in stag, but I don’t recall as well as I used to either. :oops: ::shrug::

Does anyone have any of the patterns listed here?
