    Cannot locate the other MAC LB7 I have. I guess I have an extremely rare Friday knife. Anyone can save my picture of my truly one of a kind knife, if you like. Delmas2nd, thank you for pointing out what I didn't notice.

    I just scored my third Parker-Frost Bison (bone handled 881) in brown bone. I already had the green bone and the red bone, and this completes the set of three for me. These are beautifully made USA Schrades from 1978, and one of the best values in a USA bone handled large stockman. Didn't get the box with this one, but got it for a very reasonable price.

    I received this old Schrade as a gift today from a guy here in town that owns a trading post. I go in on occasion and talk knives with him. I was pleasantly surprised when he opened one of his big ol safes and said "I got something for you". He was a bit confused on the date I believe, he said it was made in the 50s. I think probably the 70s. But I didn't argue with him being my elder and all. :) I apologize for the bad lighting.

    love those butter and molasses knives. The stamping definitely puts it after 1973 when they dropped the "Walden".

    I recently picked up this Schrade LB7. It was described by the dealer as "a Schrade + USA LB7 Uncle Henry Custom Stag Bear Paw Lockback with file work" I don't really know anything about the knife. I like the Stag covers which are even side to side and I like the file work. It didn't come with a sheath so I ordered a correct one off the bay. I mentioned the Stag covers being even side to side but I think the coloring, figure, and overall appearance are really nice. Can anyone give me the manufacturing date?

    Is this truly a Custom Knife or did knives like this come from the factory with stag covers and file work?

    No other word but ""Outstanding" can describe that knife Jeff. Very, very nice.

    Really nice custom LB7 ED. Check out the LB7 thread regarding serialization.

    This one is outside my normal mode of Schrade collecting, but it popped into my e-mail at a BuyItNow that seemed very reasonable to me. Plus I like the look and shape of these knives. Also, it has the box and paperwork. Now the only question unanswered... to carry or not to carry?

    Thanks, ED, much appreciated! I just picked up another 881 from the late 70's, in jigged delrin. Blades are a little scratched up, but full and unsharpened. I suspect it had a little rust from laying around and the owner used an abrasive to remove it. Makes a great user.

    Nothing wrong with actually using one of these old Schade knives. After all, that's what they were made for. :cool:

    Absolutely right, Ballenxj, that's why I keep picking them up; you can never have too many good stockmen.
    Today I added this 1983 8OT green smooth bone, in very nice condition. It's really more of a motor oil color, with browns, grays and greens.
