    I think you are, being too picky that is. As far as I know, the 7OT is the exact same frame and build, but with the more desirable (to some folk) carbon steel blade.
    Now I could be wrong about this, since I was wrong once before.

    I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.

    You can find some 7OT knives with a SCHRADE+ Stainless blade. I can't be wrong about that.

    But, but, but, this is the most activity this thread has had in a while. I guess you're right though.

    LB7 Bear Paw LB Survey

    Here's a couple. I now have several of these but only 2 that are numbered

    First - X1161; This one is well used as you can see and doesn't lock up well anymore - trying to figure out how I might fix that:


    And this oddball, not sure it qualifies here: AA57875. It has a LB8 stamped blade with wood handle scales. I thought all LB8s had staglon scales, so what gives?


    FWIW, so far I've found the Uncle Henry branded versions of these knives to be better quality.

    that is a neat one with the LB8 on the wood handle there were LB7's with staglon handles before they decided to designate them LB8's and they would be the 4 pin variety.

    I don't haunt the Schrade forum but I found this thread by accident while searching for something else.

    My one and only LB7 has the following information:

    SCHRADE+
    USA LB7
    4 pins in a rosewood handle
    Serial # - M77080

    The belt sheath is black leather.

    Until I read through this thread, I didn't even realize my LB7 had a serial number. I don't know how old it is as it is second hand to me via a third party selling things for his "older" neighbor. They both live in Grove City, Ohio.

    Hi zzyzzogeton --

    I watched this thread for a long time

    You have a 'fairly high' # for a 4-pin, close to the design or manufacturing change

    Highest 4-pin # I recorded was N27722

    Lowest 3-pin # I recorded was N29256

    Not sure about what year that would have happened

    ENJOY your LB7!!

    ---- Anyone have a number between those 2 I listed? 3 or 4 pins?

    Hi Delmas --

    I forgot to mention the Q#s

    My guess is they were put aside for replacements

    Have a couple myself

    Hi Cal --

    I've been working harder than a man my age should be
    Looking in on my fellow Schradeaholics as much as I can
    Grabbing a Schrade goodie when I can
    Getting very hard to find something good for a reasonable price
    Always appreciate your knowledge contributions!!

    Hi Delmas2 - Thanks for keeping the LB7 flame Burning!!

    ALL - Any thoughts on the Q #'d LB7s being replacements?

    My Best to ALL!!

    not sure but i have a couple of 4 pin LB7's with no serial number and i have always considered this the replacement since they would not be subject to replacement for anything (i have gotten one for loss with no serial number).

    The guy I bought it from finally got back to me after asking the widow of the guy he got it from if she knew when he bought it. All she knew was that he had it "for a long time and carried it everywhere".

    The well-worn condition of the belt sheath and scratches on the bolsters confirm that. Based on the walk/talk and blade condition, he didn't use it much, but it sure got carried for a loooong time.
