Not my knife. A friend picked this up and we've been trying to figure out who made it and when and if it is celluloid as we suspect? Shield is not pinned. All blades except the punch have half stops. One of the pics shows an interesting thing about the bolsters, they have a lip that extends under the scales, this is present on all the bolsters.
I had a four blade wards stockman that looked to be utica, it's construction looked similar to yours. That spiral punch looks like camillus to me but the rest of the knife doesn't. Did utica use a spiral punch?
Always looking for excellent to mint condition schrade cut co and walden knives. I really like stockman and cattle patterns.
I ended up trading into the knife so it is now on the shelf at home. Don't have it in hand right now but comparing it to my Camillus knives I would be surprised if the punch or any part of it was made by Camillus. The punch, as well as the other blades, are very thin. And although I am by no means an expert and it's hard to explain the Wards just doesn't feel like Camillus. I have no Utica to compare it to so my opinion may change in the future. I'm happy with it sitting with my other stockman and the 4 blade pattern makes it unique in my collection so far.
