    They are bone handled, and I believe all have stainless (SCHRADE+) blades. The etches on the blades were done by Frank Giorgianni. There are two stockman (The Farmer, The Rancher), a linerlock single blade trapper (The Miner), Trapper (The Lumberman) and muskrat (The Fisherman). The bone colors vary green, brown, and red. Well made, and serialized. Some come in little white boxes,

    Thank You for that thawk,
    I have just found some information saying; Schrade started to ship them in September 1981, with a Free Display case and the other knives where shiped one-at-a-time in one month intervals.
    Looks like Schrade made 1400 knives, of each colors... Ken

    Thank You lrv,
    That information is very good - However, it states "only 1400 Green bone knives sets were made"
    I have seen "Red bone knives" posted by thawk in one of these posts... Ken

    I just bagged a "Tradesman Series" prototype that was not included in the set when it was actually issued. Now it's sort-of a six knife set!
