    It has ulster blades.

    At the time it was made schrade and ulster were out of the same factory, and were essentially the same knives. Parts interchanging between the two was common. Think of it like the difference between chevrolet and gmc.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I am curious, does the unusual box and Ulster blade set shed any light on its age, or relative age?

    You're welcome. Im not real sure on exact age but it has delrin handles. It's in the range of early 60's, probably after 1961. Best guess.

    Peppercorn, mid 1960s through 1970. In 1971 they switched to a two-piece box instead of the hinged one you have.

    I may be mistaken, but it doesn’t seem Schrade cataloged all their knife options. Here’s a couple I haven’t been able to find in their catalog and supplements.

    Top is marked SCC and the other is DE. Schrade Cut  French ivory and same Shapleigh 245.jpg

    I've posted this a while ago, but these are new pics!! I love these single-spring, two-blade stockmen!! 4" long, hefty and sturdy, but slim!! Not a Jumbo Jack!!:D
    Great handles on this one, IMO!! SCC single stock 1.jpg SCC single stock 2.jpg SCC single stock 3.jpg SCC single stock 4.jpg SCC single stock 5.jpg k.jpg SCC single stock 6.jpg

    Woweee Charlie- that’s an outstanding knife! The bone is incredible- didn’t Schrade know how to do it right eh! Live their Swage work- that Spey is a gorgeous shaped Blade - not to mention of course that lovely Clip - I also like the sleek Serpentine Frame on these as well and being a 4 inch knife - somehow puts into the wee bit more of a treasure!

    There is so much to appreciate about this knife. The one thing I keep looking at the most, in the moment anyway, is the extreme swedge on that clip.
    It’s the most swedge I’ve seen on one of these ‘old’ Schrades. Right down to the top edge of the nail pull and below going forward. Just beautiful and an incredible example of the DNA that moved this particular stockman pattern forward.


    Would it be possible to get a picture of that detail from above?

    I got a chuckle out of all those folk who wanted to store that knife in a high humidity area. Kind of silly, but I understand. Now then... the dry air of Wyoming is really ideal for this sort of thing.
