    Schrade walden 881, original unused unsharpened and un-messed with condition, but with an elusive combination; peachseed bone and a match strike pull.

    This one is also elusive in its condition and with the beautiful red peachseed.

    Thank you John.

    This year has been exceptionally good for collecting, better than all my previous years combined. I am very grateful.

    Isn't a place to put your folding knife the reason the gods invented Haversacks, Possibles Bags, and Sporrans, before they invented trouser/pants pockets?

    I know having the wife(or wives)/girlfriend (or girlfriends) (plurals if the guy is rich, brainless, and has a death wish) carry your knife in their purse wasn't and isn't a viable option. It would either get lost in there under the kitchen sink, or she would decide she needs it more than you do. (or is tired of applying bandaids on you and decides you too clumsy to be trusted around sharp things ... her sharp tongue and wit excluded, of course)

    Did add a pretty nice Schrade Cut Co 3 1/2" stockman this week, celluloid covers, full blades and lots of original blade finish except where someone took a Dremel buffing wheel to clean corrosion.

    The 879 only seems to appear in the catalogs from 1962-66

    That's a great pattern. Just like an 881 but with nicely rounded and threaded bolsters.

    For some reason that pattern was not shown in the earlier walden catalogs despite it being around since the cut co era. They were even made in delrin for a short time and some had a match strike main.

    You are welcome. Your knife was probably made in the 50's by the way.

    I thought that as well, Paul, they made very few in bone after 1960-ish.
