    Hello, I've got an older USA made Schrade Walden 293 trapper that I can't pin down a manufacture date on. I've not seen this knife with Schrade Walden on the badge, also does anyone know if this is delrin or bone, I think it's delrin but not sure.
    Lastly I want to start carrying this knife but it needs a little work,blades have some side to side and the spring for the spey blade is weak, would like the name of a member who could help out with that.

    Thanks

    Anyone know of a knife mechanic who could tighten this knife up ?

    I think it’s a Swinden key knife. Not sure they can be fixed very easily. If at all.

    Search “tighten swinden key knife”. Lots of info available. The only real fix is to convert it to regular thru pins.

    I believe your knife is Swinden key construction- not worth fixing in that condition (just my opinion). The handles are indeed Delrin. Your example would be 1961 to 1973. Those shields with and without SCHRADE WALDEN on them seem to be random. Probably used what was on hand.
