    I like those old Craftsman knives!

    This next one is miles away from being in factory condition because someone ground off a few scaling teeth making the blade more narrow. I don't know if the soldered on thumb-tab is factory or not. I do know that the double-thick liner on the lock side makes this knife different in construction from some other Fisherman's Pride examples. Maybe the tab is a factory difference too.

    Has anyone seen another Fisherman's Pride with a similar thumb-tab? I appreciate any and all responses regarding the tab.

    I love the handles on this knife! It's also the only example I've seen with a bail attached. It's my biggest Cut Co. and snaps closed like a bear-trap. Locks tight and the blade is well centered when it's closed.

    SSC114 3/4 S as seen in 1936 supplement:

    SS7099SI and SS7099SI Shac

    I.T.E. Circuit Breaker Company adopted that name for their company in 1928. Maybe that's when they ordered these knives. These stainless knives weren't listed until the 1930 supplement though so it could be a few years younger.

    Factory 1095 bladed 858?
    It may not exist, even taking into consideration those without the "Schrade +" tang stamp.

    The "High Carbon Tool Steel" specified in the catalogs and ads, does include 440A, 440C, and 420/420HC.

    Great showing bladecollectorr!


    I picked up another SW 880. It’s a survivor but not in too bad of shape. Wonderful bone.

    Oh Man....Paul that is a beauty right there- a wonderful knife and a great pick up, that PeachSeed Bone of Schrades was such a hit, but in all honesty I think we appreciate it even more these days! The Blades are full too- the wee pickle at the end of that nice Spey is so easily fixed with near zero blade loss- I would be very happy with that purchace!

    Thank you Duncan, it was a good purchase.

    It’s nice to have a pair. The saber ground main blade on these are impressive in their heft and aesthetically pleasing.

    Nice pair of classics my friend. Often I see knives and think to myself - Why haven’t I tried to make this my main theme in my collection - but then I look at all the other patterns and think the same of them. :rolleyes:

    It’s cold outside! I’ve got my microfiber cloth and oil out. I think I’ll rub on this ole Schrade Cut Co a little bit to pass the time. :)

    What a sweet old Barlow Ron- who knows that could may even be older than Paul Hilborn- so it may definitely be Antique!
