    I scored this little guy at the local pawn shop yesterday and was wondering whether or not the 'B' tube is correct for the plain 708 marked knife?
    I'm thinking they just didn't bother stamping an ST, Y, or B on all the various 708s made over the years.
    Thanks in advance.

    Many Schrades had the letter suffix to denote handle material that was not stamped on the tang. Looks right to me:
    "B" for black. The 708 with no suffix was the standard brown jigged Delrin.
