PATTEN STAMPED / SCHRADE WALDEN / FISHTAIL
This is a bit of an unusual piece in that it is marked with a seldom seen patent that was employed to prevent kickback upon open. Marked Schrade Walden USA along with the patent number "2304601" on rear. Measuring 4" closed and 7-3/16" open with crack and shrinkage free jigged black composite handles. Full unsharpened blade exhibits some light patina and sits one hair above the liner. Blade fires hard and locks open but locks open with some play that would usually indicate a piece missing from the tang, which is not the case. Perhaps the patented kickback system is the culprit as I can see no other reason. Safety functions. Copy of patent included with purchase.
