    Nice HO12 nbkr, I have not seen too many of those...
    Schrade was thinking about selling an ACB72 in blue rope-cut bone, in 2004.
    The ACB knives did not make it to production... Ken
    Schrade gave these 72 Old Times away to their customers, in 1987.

    My first Schrade, was an 881, and it has been my E.D.U. since 1973.

    I recently had this nice box-full of US-based Schrade arrive from my parcel forwarder. Some real nice additions. They will all get cleaned and polished at my usual glacial pace. Here's the whole lot as received.

    Top-left: Schrade Cut. Co. SS7099SI inked salesman sample

    Interesting gent's knife variation from when stainless steel was relatively new and portrayed as the coolest thing ever. The SS prefix specifies that the knife has stainless blades. That's a relatively common option. The SI suffix specifies that the knife has stainless handles and spring. This senator is completely stainless. As my first inked sample knife it's a great new addition to my Cut Co herd.

    Top-center: black basket-weave "Schrade" stamped sheath for small knife

    I have never seen these paired with a knife so when I first saw it listed I wondered if it was a legit pre-2004 ISC product. Then I saw it was Herman Williams selling it. He tells me he bought them from a collector who purchased them when Schrade closed-up shop in 2004. That's legit enough for me.


    Top-left: 3OT, brass and green fibron. Ducks Unlimited "Greenwing" in matching DU sheath

    Lots of verdigris but should look great when I'm done cleaning both the knife and the sheath.


    Center: PH1-sized sambar stag SFO for 1999 Calgary Stampede in original (fully welted) sheath

    This fine Canadian SFO is pretty hard to find. I don't know how many they made but I'd be surprised if it was more than 250 or 350. Maybe even less judging by how often they appear online. It's in fantastic condition. Patina on the brass is the worst thing I can say about it. I love burnt sambar handles and the bonus Canadian content makes this one a double winner for me.


    Bottom-left: E.Weck stamped SFO. Schrade Cut. Co. 8653T Sha lobster

    This is my first Cut. Co. bone-handled knife and it's also my first 3" Sunfish Lobster so another great addition to my Schrade gent's collection. It is in very nice condition with no chips or cracks on the handles. The jigging is very attractive. The blades all have good walk and talk.


    Scattered throughout are five 100th Anniversary pins I grabbed. They are the same shield as applied on the 100th Anniversary money-clips.

    Nice ones! Have you made a list of all of the DU Greenwings knives you have found? I love the green Delrin covers. I have a pair of the 154OT pattern fixed blades made for U.S. Tobacco (SKOAL), but the use of green Delrin on fixed blades was quite uncommon.

    Thanks. I only have the three Greenwings so far. I do have a 194OT Skoal in green too.

    I like 'em!

    This is a fresh scan of the Greenwing 3OT I posted previously in a group-photo. It looks real nice after I cleaned it up.
