I bought this blade from an old man at a yard sale. He said he got it from a truck driver who found it in an old house that he tore down. It says C.C. KNIFE CC Phoenix on the blade If anyone knows what it truly is or worth please comment.

    CC knife Co. = Central City Knife Co. of Phoenix AZ. 1880 to 1892. I can't tell much from the photo's but if that is a hoof pick it could be a cattleman's knife. If the pick is just a scribe I would guess maybe for marking logs in the forestry industry. Either way it's an interesting and fairly rare knife.

    Slight correction. Should be Phoenix NY, my fingers got ahead of my brain.

    How big is the knife,closed length.The hook looks to me like a button hook,they put them on some knives but I've never seen one on a pattern like that.I'm showing that stamp as Central Cutlery Co of Elizabeth,NJ,C1926.Better pictures would be needed to tell much more about value,I can't tell what the scales are from your pictures.

    it's about 1inch and a quarter closed length

    There's just the single pen blade besides the hook?Are the scales wood or horn?

    Hey beau5278, I agree that the hook was probably a button hook for ladies gloves and it's either bent or the end is broken off. Both Levine's and Goins show the CC mark as Central City out of Phoenix NY. Here is a discussion on a similar knife.
