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.

My latest addition, a #903 Medium Sierra lockback. Produced 2000-2006. I paid $30 for it, not much more than the original $29 MSRP (and actually, a little less given the $3-5 it cost to ship, which was included in the price as "free" shipping). 3 5/8" is about perfect. This knife was intended as a shelf-queen, but I like the ergonomics. Not too big, not too small. Solidly constructed, and tough. Not flimsy feeling like the Buck Bantams (I have a thumb stud coming loose on a BLW which has only been carried a couple dozen times), and lightweight due to being linerless. 420HC isn't high on my edge retention list, but it sharpens pretty easily.

One complaint is no jimping--but it is an inexpensive budget model after all.

It replaces a beater I bought used; which was produced for Remington, and was a freebie with a box of .22 ammo, I'm thinking in the early '00s. This knife has a two-hand opening, spear-point blade and no clip. Cost-cutting, or another reason as to why it is so much different?
