Glad you posted that one!

Thanks

I think you're right about the custom shield on that one. That is the only COPE spinoff I've seen and know nothing about it. I think I saved that pic from ebay? The oval Schrade shields on the Skoal spinoffs I believe came from the 1997 Heritage collection. But I don't know which came first, the Skoal SMKW spinoff knives or the Heritage knives. From the info you posted, Skoal came out in '95. Did Schrade use a custom SMKW shield on their '97 Heritage? Or did SMKW use the Heritage shields on their SFO spinoff? Maybe Schrade found a way to unload a bunch of spare Skoal parts on SMKW? I've seen the oval shield used on other oddball knives too. More Schrade curiosity. LOL

Yep, lots of questions there.
A knife with a Copenhagen shield had to be bought by the tobacco company and marketed through them (I would think). As an example, If there was 10,000 parts knives produced and only 5,000 bought by the tobacco co., then Schrade had a lot of material to try to find a use for.
That was my thinking for using the Cope shaped shields.
Must not be very many out there...... Your pic is the first I have seen.

I thought you might want to add these Skoal Bandit knives to your list. The wood appears to be birds eye maple. First time I have seen these.
