Dollar Knife Company

Schatt & Morgan knives were first manufacturer back in 1890. The Queen Cutlery company made most of the more recent examples, but Schatt had its own plant in its earlier years that cranked out the oldies. There is no shortage of fantastic Schatt & Morgan knives in existance that have been made over the brand's long & storied history.

Dollar Knife Company

Post by 1967redrider »

Posting the trio of Dollar Knife Company knives I just received from Cooper Cutlery. I must say the fit and finish are spot on.

Some specifications-
Beaver Falls Cutlery
Spear Blade with Half-stops
D2 Tool Steel Blade
Blue, Red or Mammoth Federal Shield
Handle Material: Jigged or Natural Bone
Closed Length: 3-1/2" long
Blade Length: 2-3/4" long

I also have the Clark and Krauss book pertaining to the Dollar Knife Company/Schatt & Morgan history, which I need to read cover to cover soon. Apparently the blue Federal shields were one of the original knife distinguishing characteristics, but I do need to read the book more thoroughly. Posting some pictures for you perusal.

The best I can tell is it's one of the Cooper Cutley brands.

Nice to read a review of these. I saw this drop the other day and was tempted. I see some of these for sale on Ebay at or near the prices these were at the dealers.
I’m still waiting on Cooper Cutlery to produce something with more than single or 2 blades. I hope they can get to making whittlers, stockmans and sowbelly stockmans like Schatt and Morgan offered. I bought one of their first Schatt and Morgan knives and it’s a large knife, hoping that quality reaches a point where they can confidently offer the smaller multi blades.

These knives do look impressive, congrats.
