This is a nice vintage CCC sleeveboard knife with a great stag bone handle.

The Cattaraugus Cutlery Company expanded into knife production in 1882, and would produce some of the United State's finest cutlery well into the 1960's under the W.R. Case & Sons company starting in 1905.

The company originated in Little Valley, New York around the turn of the 20th century, before relocating to its current home, Bradford, Pennsylvania, in 1905.

You see the stamping showing "Little Valley".

The company's namesake, William Russell Case, first made knives with his brothers under the name, Case Brothers Cutlery Company. His son, John Russell ("Russ") Case, worked as a salesman for his father's company before founding W.R. Case & Sons

The handle shows a great, rich patina in shades of amber and brown. The bolsters, pins, and onlaid cartouche are nickel silver and still shine brightly.

There are two carbon-steel blades. The first of these is a long spear blade that has a strong open, close and half snap. They short pen blade simply opens and closes. The liners are brass.

The longer of the two blades shows only the faintest pitting, but remains in great condition overall as does the pen blade.

We are happy to say that this wonderful vintage knife remains in near-mint condition with a great history from a classic, renounded knife manufacturer.

Handle (w/ bolsters): 3 1/8" long, Approx. 3/8" wide and 3/8" thick
Spear blade: 2 ¼" long
Pen blade: 1 ¾" long
Weight: 29.1 grams (1.03 oz)
