    Not sure how old this knife is. It's a junior cattle knife at 3 3/8" closed. Likely Camillus made.

    Nice looking jack there Stormdrane and a good picture. Are those bone or delrin handles?

    And Calvin, that is some tasty looking bone on that Schrade Walden 293.

    I can't really tell if the jigged handles are delrin or bone, although I suspect delrin with how smooth they look. It's hard for me to feel texture with the peripheral neuropathy(diabetic) in my fingertips. Is there a way to check without damaging the handles?

    Good Granny! That toothpick looks like it had a bad day.

    I'll attempt to look these up in my Sears catalogues when I get home. Sometimes I get lucky.

    Stormdrane, your knife was sold in the early to mid 1970's. It was a part of Sears Bi-centennial series as the American Eagle shield suggests. And of course the covers are Delrin. A very nice knife as a user even if it weren't a special keepsake!

    Camillus, yes. As the tang marking shows, High Carbon U.S.A. Note that it is co-branded with Craftsman and Sta-Sharp too. Baer pretty well knocked Camillus out as a supplier to Sears when he left Camillus and took the Sears accounts with him in the winter/spring 1940-41. For several years his Ulster was the major Sears supplier and he had exclusive use of the Craftsman mark on pocket cutlery until just after the end of the war when Camillus was allowed to use it as a cobranding with it's Sta-Sharp mark. While I can't find my catalog pages from 1939-1950 (another move), an educated guess for this knife is 1946-1949. And it appears to be an excellent survivor!

    A couple of new purchases. Craftsman 9555 camper/utility knife and a 9561 electricians knife.

    A quote from Codger on the show thread;
    "A Sears Craftsman #9555 "Schrade Walden Saw Knife", a camp utility knife with a fifth blade, a saw added, made for and shipped to Sears in 1967! I love these things! Rare? Mmmm... that word does tend to get overused. They are pretty uncommon finds today. I have two of them."

    "Keep your eyes open for a Sears Craftsman #9561, another Schrade Walden, but an electrician pattern. It has the same saw blade added and makes for a very thick knife with three springs in the spring pack instead of the normal two and the extra brass liner, total of four. In fact, when measured across the butt not including the shackle, it is 3/4" wide."

    "Schrade Walden production records listed the #9555 as the "SW SAW KNIFE" first in 1967. The master blade has the Craftsman "crown" logo (matching the coined shield) and the number 9555. Mine came with a light tan leather pouch style sheath with "crown" Craftsman logo embossed on the flap. They were only sold for a year or so and in limited quantities. IIRC, a thousand or less were shipped. Nice find!"

    ETA: "I believe it is indeed built on the Ulster utility knife frame. But at this point Schrade Walden and Ulster were pretty much one and the same."

    Nice pair of gets! If you decide to put them to work I think you will find that saw design to be very aggressive and it cuts better than any saw blade or back I have ever had attached to a knife. If I were still doing drywall I would be tempted to give it a try!
