    Henckels, a hair under 3 1/2 inches, hammered pins, half stops, broken tip on small blade. I'm thinking pre-WWI? ??? Henckels, according to Goins lost the right to market their trademarks in the U.S. from some time in or around WWI until 1928. Goins does not show this exact tang stamp. Thoughts welcome.

    Nice Henckels Calvin, I recently acquired a few Earlier Henckels recently, they are on their way too me - in saying that your example is Stellar! Gorgeous full blades!I would have to refer to a Tang stamp chart - they are as you say not full of details to try and date it but at a guess from looking at these Henckels I think you would be close with dates.

    Thanks for the comments, guys! Here is a gentleman's stockman in what we Schrade a philes call a 'Slenderino,' because of its svelte profile. Schrade and Camillus (think pattern 69) and maybe others made these slim jims as an upscale item, sometimes with milled liners and so on. This example is almost un-used but has some water damage. 8613LB catalog cut001.jpg pu1.jpg pu2.jpg pu3.jpg pu4.jpg pu5.jpg pu6.jpg

    Dating a J.A. Henckels knife on a blade stamp alone is nearly impossible. You can really only date Henckels knives by factory catalog information.
    Nice old knife which was made in the 1930s (model # 1868) and not offered again after WWII.

    They were the Junior Varsity brand for NYKC ;):thumbsup: Although quality-wise there isn't much difference. NYK bought Electric Cut Co in the eary 1900s and they manufactured all the ones stamped Walden, NY. Electric Cut Co was discontinued in ~1920.
