    I think this might be a #16, but not sure. Just over 3" long.

    Wow- that's a very neat old HJ Charlie my friend!

    In this same thread you have a Schrade Contract Made Challenge,the build of your fantastic HJ above is almost exact.

    The pin placement is the same as Schrade's contract HJ, the Shield looks Schrade, Schrade used that Shield in the 20's and 30's as I see in Catalog E, the Pic bone screams Schrade so perhaps a Schrade knife with a Robeson Contract bought Punch?
    OH boy! when comparing Knives- whew...it can be a long dark corridor for Duncan towards the Head Master waiting - Cane in hand.

    Even thought the odds that I am miles away I really like that HJ - gorgeous!

    I was looking through some boxes at home with the help of @Half/Stop and found some shy fellas. A C.F Wolfertz & Co. Barehead swell end in brass (1905-1944):

    A Miller Bros. barehead swell end in steel (1872-1926). It is linerless and both of the cover/bolsters are one piece. And a Schatt & Morgan regular jack with a true clip main (1902-1928).

    Thanks, Charlie. I had a short hiatus or two for some hunting and I did have a fine visit from Ron @Half/Stop, but I think that I'm back in the saddle again. Ron helped me plumb the last few boxes of knives that I had not looked through and we found some oldies and some oddities. I'll try to get some posted.

    A while ago, a couple of times I posted some arrivals of Camillus Knives made knives made for Sears.

    I was a little worried that this package had been a bit lost- but it got here much to my relief!

    Out of the Knives inside, 3 were from the Camillus Factory display., I had another knife that was from the Camillus display, so these were a welcome arrival.

    Some of these are a wee bit plain, but the build, the Bone- just when a Knife guy looks at the whole package- I just really like these Knives, some of the Knives condition is simply outstanding! especially when viewing a 4 bladed smaller knife you appreciate very quickly the talents of the Cutlers who assembled these Knives.

    These knives do peak my interest somewhat, HighCarbon Steel U.S.A, Forged USA - used by Camillus for Sears & Roebuck.
    Made in U.S.A stamp was used by Camillus, Ulster and Schrade, these three Cutler companies also shared the Craftsman etch on the Blade with that Tang Stamp.

    These following knives are from Camillus, two are used- but still nice knives...

    On the first one shown, I do love this Bone used by Camillus, it's such an attractive Colour, it's lighter in Colour then the more often used darker Browns which highlight the amazing Jig work- but if you look at this knife careful enough - you get to appreciate the Bone and Jigging. This Knife's Main tang is stamped FORGED U.S.A.
    [​IMG]

    At a peek over 3 inches closed, this 4 bladed knife is a wee Gem! walk and Talk is superb for a tight nest of Steel!
    [​IMG]

    Stained, but lovingly used Blades and carefully sharpened, I love seeing these older knives in this condition....
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another nice and barely used Camillus is a same sized Knife as the last you just viewed - again 4 bladed bladed Knife packed all together in this tiny little frame- there's no blade rub on this wee beauty!
    Main Blade's Tang is stamped HIGHCARBON STEEL USA, Gorgeous Bone -you really have to have these smaller Knives in the hand to really appreciate everything about them, I think the condition of this Knife is just fantastic, the photo's actually make the Patina stand out far more that in " the flesh"...

    These next two are from Camillus Factory display:
    The first is a Mint 3 bladed Junior Stockman Knife, Tang Stamped MADE IN USA, What can you usually say about a Mint knife? it is just a treat to see and handle. This Knife is a slightly smaller Knife as well at just under 3 & 1/2 inches long.
    Lovely Bone on this Knife - a nice addition the my Sears collection...

    The other Knife from the Camillus display, is this Two Bladed Knife, Nice Bone, a nice long Pen Blade nestled in with that neat Clip, again a slightly smaller knife at a peek under 3 & 1/2 inches closed.
    Mains Tang is Stamped MADE IN U.S.A.

    Now here is a real Sweetheart of a Knife, again this one was from Camillus's Factory Display, and man... what a Knife!
    Dead Mint tiny Cap Bolstered Senator knife with Stunning fine Jig work which when studied - leaves one to think that perhaps they need to look at the Bone for another minute or so :)
    Main's tang stamped FORGED U.S.A, this smaller Knife almost seems to be a cut above the rest- not trying to be smart with the use of any puns here.
    This Knife is simply perfect in every way, at 3 inches long- there's a LOT of work assembling a knife that executes every movement perfectly - so finely tuned to have this tight wee package work like this.

    Another outstanding Knife that was gifted to me by the seller of these above knives, this gift was a "For Surviving Major Heart Surgery" Man - what a lovely and extremely kind thought, the Gentleman whom a lot of us know was in the medical profession at high level and he understood just what I have very recently been through - I can tell you this Knife made my sore Heart beat quite a bit happier :D, I don't quite know just how to put into words what these very kind and very generous things mean to me, so I need to stop trying to express how I feel as there simply isnt enough time - here is this Knife...

    Almost a Gunstock- but is Gunstock, a pattern you hardly ever ever see around by Camillus, Gorgeous Bone - just Beautiful!! 3 1/2 inches closed, boy- this knife is a very weighty knife for its size!
    The Rats tailed Bolsters together with the squared off End Caps are a brilliant combination - I cant explain how much I like this Knife!

    Even silly wee details as the Federal Shield is so sharply defined - the very fine sharp top peaks of the Shield for instance, often you dont see a Federal quite so.
    A stout Main Clip-point with it's beefy Pen, the Walk and Talk suit the Knife - Stout, firm no half stops- and an audible Snap!
    The Craftsman Sta Sharp etch is still clearly seen, the Main's Tang is stamped HIGHCARBON STEEL U.S.A

    Just a massive welcomed addition to the clan - THANK YOU kind Sir!

    Thanks Charlie :thumbsup: excited!, I am thinking I will make it- looking that way so far! :)

    Thank you Paul! :thumbsup: Yeah I think they are kinda cool

    Here is my S & R family so far, a lot of these Knives are actually very nice Knives, and some in absolute factory new condition! The lighting of a quick photo does nothing for these knives.

    Duncan, that is a spectacular array of Camillus made Sears knives!:thumbsup: As Dave said, that 4 blade senator is amazing! I am very partial to those equal end bone senators with the tip bolsters. The gunstock was a great gesture from the seller, I do believe you have bought many knives from him.

    Wow!! What wonderful (and generous) additions to your superb S&R collection, Duncan. I think that your pictures do them fair justice, enough to catch and hold my eye. Your write-up conveys the excitement and appreciation one would expect from a grateful knife nut. Kudos! And thanks for sharing.
