Can anyone identify this Craftsman? It looks to be a Schrade-Walden but not for sure.

This is one of an endless list of variations on the Schrade H-15. I think 1976 was the last catalog year for that knife sold under the Schrade banner, but they started making it in 8 B.C. :D Schrade made a lot of knives for Sears and others. Mine seems to be a kind of el cheapo-looking thing, but it is really a darn good user. Many of them had a guard with a bit of a serpentine shape instead.

G'Day Jackie, I was waiting for you to give further details of length of blade etc as just by looking at the blade it looks thinner than typical H15 and different shape?....you have examples of SW H15 so is it the same just with Craftsman on Tang or have you found another variety? Hoo Roo

Sorry, about being late getting back. My mind goes astray quite often.

The knife's OAL is 9 5/8 inches.

The blade is 5 1/8 inches.

Actually, the blade is heavier and thicker than my other H-15's. Plus, it's a different type of blade. This knife really intrigues me.
