Last year I picked up this #884 Stockman knife. I know that this was done around 1991, but I don't know what the inscription "USWA Local 37" means ::shrug:: .

It's like a branch number. Like the Boy Scouts have troop numbers, labor/trade unions have "branch" or "group" numbers, they call their branches/groups, "locals."

"A local union is a locally-based group of workers with a charter from a national or international union such as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) or United Auto Workers (UAW). A local may include workers from the same company or region."

You're welcome. Evidently Local 37 is located in Huntington, West Virginia.
