Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Hello.  Rather new to collecting and researching knives.  Have a couple dozen, from hand-me-downs, to my own purchases from boy scouts on.  I've come across one that i can identify the make, guess at the time frame of construction - would like more than my own guess, but other than that...would like to know actual production range, model, and if there's value other than "oh i like that".

It is a Union CutCo, from Olean NY.  Two blades and an awl, with shield.  I've spent about 50 hours or so searching the internet and the only real thing I've found is the posting here about Union Cutlery co becoming Kbar.  (Interesting history)

Thanks for your time!
