Here is a set of the knives along with a short history by Larry Vickery dated 12/2006. Note the price stamp on the can on the left (23 cents) , I also have one that has a hand written price of 20 cents .

Bob

"In 1968 Reynolds’ ordered 3 Ulster pattern knives from Schrade Walden specifying the Old Timer name brand. 2 of the knives were already being produced under the Ulster name the 3rd was a new OT pattern Camper/Utility knife using the existing Ulster 114 pattern. They were each given an internal company number, 4507 to the 114 OT-Reynolds, 4508 to the 10 OT-Reynolds and 4509 was assigned to the 58 OT-Reynolds. As with the other Old Timers the difference between the normal pattern and the OT was that the OT came with a brass liner where the standard pattern was steel.
The first year of production was for a modest number of 1200 of each pattern. By 1971 the orders had increased to 30,000 for the 114 OT, 46,000 for the 10 OT and a whopping 243,000 for the 58OT. The 58OT-Reynolds was not produced after 1972 although the standard 58OT was being shipped until 1980. The 114 OT stopped after 1973 and the last of the Reynolds order the 10 OT in 1974. The knives were delivered from Schrade Walden in bulk, packed in poly bags of 100 knives each."
