Been back in a slipjoint mood the last week or so, and spent some time fondling my collection the other day, so I figured I'd post up my "8" frame display case.
If y'all remember a while back I was trying to catalog just how many knives had been built on the 4" standard stockman frame by schrade and it's various enterprises. Part of that process was formalizing a decent little collection I had been stockpiling over the years. Here's the case as it stands:
from the top left down:
1976 - matched serial numbers of the Parker-Frost American Eagle/founders knives
1978 - Red Bone 1978-2 Parker-Frost "Bison" (I have a green one too, but that's a carry knife
1970's - CM-1 "Kentucky Rifle" (Standard grade)
1975 - Unserialized 88LH "Texas Longhorn"
1976 - S.W.Cut DB1 "Daniel Boone"
Mid 90's - SK89 "Skoal" version of the 89OT
1996 - Ingersoll Rand "125Years" Commemorative SFO
1980's - Blue Delrin "Farmers Pride" FFA SFO
1970's - "Old Crafty" Craftsman 9547
Late 70's - Frontier 4431 "Powderhorn Stag" delrin
Right side, top down:
Post 1973 - "Open Stock" 881 (Post Walden stamp, straight pull)
2002/3 - "Founders Edition" 881 (Schrade+ Blades)
Post 1973 - "Open Stock" 881Y
1973-75 - Post Walden (NY USA) era 880 w/Matchstriker pull
1950's - Walden stamped, Jigged bone 880 KON-KAV with dual finished blades (mark side of main blade is polished, everything else is glazed finished The oldest, and Probably the second rarest thing in the display)
Pre-1973 - Walden Stamped 8OT - Matchstriker pull
1970's - NY USA era Production 8OT
1974 - G.D.O.T. "Grand Dad's Old Timer"
2002-4 - OTC80 "Old Timer Classic"
1983-86 - "Heritage" Green Bone 8801
Pre-1973 - (probably the rarest thing in my collection) very early, walden/stainless stamped 885UH Uncle Henry with Nickel silver milled liners
1970's - NY USA era production 885UH
1985 - "Scrimshaw" SC505 - Weasel and Rat
I have one more spot in this case. Dunno what's gonna go in there yet, but it depends on what I find. In a perfect world it would be either a bone 8OT, or better yet an old Cut Co 8813 or 8833. Maybe one of the 5 variations on the 100th anniversary knives that never got an official release.
