Cattle knife

Here is a cattle knife I finished a little while back.

3 3/4 closed CPM-154 blades integral 416 liners and bolsters mill relieved at the pivot with jigged bone. Half stops on blades and file work on the liners.

I especially like the lines with the side showing all three blades.

Craig,

Very nice job on the knife! I've been raising a few cattle for the last 25 years and have never heard of a cattle knife. What makes this a cattle knife?

Great looking folder. I can't imagine trying to get the back springs all set right with three blades to deal with

Thanks everyone.

Raymond I have heard this pattern called equal end stock knife, equal end stockman and a cattle knife. Cattle knife is what I see the most in pattern names for this one.

before we started using rubber bands to neuter bull caves. we used knives and did a little field surgery. the younger the calf, lamb or pig got there surgery the faster they healed. just thinking about it pigs and horses still have to be cut.
