My Dad got a few.
Not sure how old this knife is. It's a junior cattle knife at 3 3/8" closed. Likely Camillus made.
What a beauty, Hal! Camillus, si.

I'll attempt to look these up in my Sears catalogues when I get home. Sometimes I get lucky.
Love those threaded bolsters and fat bomb shield thawk, very nice.
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!
Sears knives pre 2004 and back are great buys.
I got a new Sears Craftsman OT8 knife this week .
