Excellent Wire Jack. Unique in my experience. Thank you for posting the photos. The blades must rotate within a larger-than-usual channel cut into the end of the wire handle. I would love to see that close-up. The pivot pin would have to be longer, of course. If you have another Wire Jack you could compare how both pivot pins are set (folded over on the ends) and how the channels are cut in which the blades rotate. Are they similar or different is the question you want to answer.
The 9-21-26 pat date is a George Schrade patent date and not his son's (George passed away in 1940).
Is the knife the same size as the Scout Wire Jacks, about 3 inches closed?
Glen has the most extensive collection of these gems. His contact info can be found on his site. Just Google "guycard" and you are there (I hesitate to put his email here for privacy/spam reasons unrelated to your question, sorry for the bother). He is a terrific fellow and has been a tremendous help to me. Thank you kindly Glen. He very well may have seen multi-bladed Wire Jacks, or even have some, like yours. If you give him a ping please let us know what you find out.
I've double checked and I don't have any Wire Jacks with the 1926 pat. stamp so I can't give you a photo of the pin or channel cut, unfortunately. I'd like to acquire one with that pat. date.
