    Were the photos you posted of the LB7s taken in a photo tent?? I purchased one today for more even lighting and consistant results and Im wondering what it will be like when i use it?
    Your picks have nice detail but I would like my blades and bolsters to be a little brighter, did you have them outside in tent on bright day or other? Any suggestions you may have would be valued.
    Regards Tim

    They look like they were scanned on a flatbed scanner

    Thanks! Every listing I add helps. Your #X9577 is among the last numbers I've seen without the Uncle Henry signature. It still would have been in the white box with Schrade Cutlery Corp. on the top in gold print.

    I've not been keeping up with the sheath's colors. They tended to change with the company's suppliers and customers style preferences. Accessory sheaths and replacement sheaths add to the mix as do customer's own leather dye and treatments. Do you have the black one with a metal clip on the back? Or the tube style with the heavy tooling?

    No black sheaths nor any of the fancy tooled ones either. This burgundy one is the first I've seen like it. But like you said all of the sheaths vary so much. I've seen three different ways to do belt attachment so far.

    One is where a flat peice of leather is sewn on the back. Another is a peice of leather sewn on, but so it sticks out from the back of the sheath and makes a loop because of the way it's sewn. The last one is flat back sheath with two slots cut in the leather. No extra leather sewn on.

    Take care, Glenn.

    Thanks again!

    Here is a scan of the black basketweave LB-7 sheath with the pocket/belt clip on the back circa 1985. It had the Schrade accessory item number of SAS18:



    They also offered the same design in 1986 with the regular sewn belt loop.

    One thing about the sheaths that may prove helpful is who made them and when. If there were any old contracts laying around it might help putting a timeline together. I know Schrade did some of there own, but when they did contract out, there should have been a paper trail somewhere. Now, are they still available?

    Just ran on to one. Imay have been told wrong, but the seller said the serial was ISH51087. This is a 4 pin with black sheath.
    Did they ever have 3 letters?

    Not to my knowledge. Ask to see a closeup photo or scan of the serial.

    "ISH51087" could be "1541087", but even that is large for a serial. "I541087" is possible too. AA thru AZ and BB are the high range of double alphas seen so far, but BB appears to be earlier than AZ.

    special help requested

    i am going to visit my son in 2 days and bring a knife as a gift. the LB7 is my favorite and as he hunts and works as a lineman, i think it fits. below are pics of a near mint 4 pin, which i wonder if it might be from 1979, the year he was born. this would make it perfect. i know from a Codger post that 1978 serial #s went up to 268,071. any best guesses on what the serial # was at the end of 1979 ? when was the "A" added ?
    listed are my 3 4-pin LB7s (more in the mail !). the first is the one i hope might be '79 (tho unlikely)
    1) #B29808
    SCHRADE+
    4 pin
    dark brown sheath (mint)

    2)#210012

    3) #G1104

    thanks, roland
