G'Day, For those interested I post some photos of my 147A,147,& 148A Schrade Walden Craftsman 9508 and 9510 made for Sears Roebuck & Co from mid 50's to early 60's.
Craftsman 9508 <147A> 3 X Peppermint or Candy Cane stripe. Each feature Aluminum alloy Guards and Birdshead Pommels and acetate Washers <plastic washers> scales.
2 X 147 SFO orange "genuine unbreakable staglon" circa 1962.
2 X Craftsman 9510 <148A> 'Licorice' and 2 X 'Strawberry' scales with sabre ground carbon steel blades and same as above guards and pommels.
There is a very rare 'Lemon Drop' 148 <proto> that has eluded me so far.
Also not seen often these days Schrade 172S <similar blade to older 148> and Imperial Pro Guide PG1 Stainless blade with the unusual blade style.
There was recent discussion re Kit Carson so I include my boxed set mainly cos I like looking at photos of knives!! Hoo Roo.

Bringing up this thread for Jackie relating to the 148's he has raised question re blade etch.
I believe this will answer your question Jackie. Hoo Roo

P.S. The second photo from left on top black sheath original faintly still shows Craftsman FYI.

Larry,

Thank you, You have quite a collection. I'm relatively new (couple months) at collecting Schrade-Walden fixed blades. Hopefully, I can gather up just a small token like the beauties you have.

You and Michael have been a big help to me and I like to say, "Thank You'.

You all are good people.

Jackie

Just bringing up this thread for Delmas as it discusses the various 147,148 combinations.
