    Here is an old knife that checks off most of the boxes for a vintage collector...
    It's an early 1900s double end swell center Ulster with a clip main blade and spear secondary blade.
    Both blades feature long nail pulls and nice grinds.
    Wonderful old jigged bone handles are highlighted with a fancy shield and uncommon double grooved bolsters.

    Thanks, Mike R.
    Here is a nice old pre WWII cattle knife with a rather uncommon "Enderes" tang stamp.
    Enderes did produce some knives and contracted out for others. I don't know if this model was made by Enderes or elsewhere.

    Thanks Duncan and Charlie.
    Great example, Charlie, Is the handle bone or pyralin?
    The # 10 catalog is not dated but does have a price list in an envelope on the back page which is dated 1928.
    There are many cattle knives shown in that catalog and here is one with a different blade configuration.

    Very nice knife and catalog herder, wouldn't it be neat to drive down to Albert Lea and research/locate the old Enderes building? Then I wonder if the local antique stores in Albert Lea would have an abundance of vintage Enderes' knives over other brandso_O

    The handles are black synthetic Neal, perhaps pyralin!?

    I do (finally) have an old knife en route. i did get this 1914 Henckels catalog last week. First pic is next to the 1898 catalog I have. Lots of interesting cutlery items in both.

    I'm certain your Green River is older than mine, great old jack :thumbsup: Appreciate the link to Russell history, in my limited internet search for knives I've not seen many Russell jacks. The stag secured my interest. Thanks Augie !

    Thanks Harry :thumbsup: hope you are well :thumbsup:
