    Lovely knife, Dan!! Having had that knife in my hands,:) I can attest to Duncan's words!! There were some amazing cutlers in Solingen!! Those scissors were built on a curve, to lay snugly into the spine of the knife!!!:eek:

    mmmm, so this knife is passing through some serious lad's hands eh? ;), that's actually really cool to see- Great showing!
    Charlie, that's very interesting what you said of the scissors being curved, I didn't pick up on that but what I did notice is the way the scissors lie flat in the Liners and not on their side as most or near all do - so that's VERY Cool! :cool:

    Thank you for the comments Charlie and Duncan. Yep Duncan, I did purchase this one from Charlie. After I commented on it in the Simmons/Keen Kutter thread, Charlie very kindly offered to sell it to me, for a very fair (to me) price. Charlie's scans, in the Simmons thread, show the curve in the scissors.

    Beautiful knife and the salesman sample etch is a wonderful enhancement. What I like the best though is how the scissors fold so uniquely into the back of the handle.
    Great piece and great of Charlie to pass it on to you!!!

    Thank you, Mike.

    I wonder if anyone would have any ideas on what German cutlery might have made this knife for Simmons? I have ordered Carter's book on German knives, but not sure if I will find any of this type of info in there or not?

    That's quite a knife! I have never seen scissors configured like that.

    Nothin fancy but one I like. A Camillus made for Sears? Trapper with great bone, fairly worn blades that are centered in the wells with no play (I like the Saber Main blade). Not sure of the age but guessing 40's-60's? Tang stamp is MADE IN USA, I've also seen them stamped STA SHARP and HIGH CARBON USA also.

    Paul, I looked into it once before and if I remember right somewhere right around WW2, just before to just after.

    At 50 years of age, I think this qualifies for the Oldies thread. Near new Keen Kutter Schrade Walden 897UH (blade etch is faint, but visible).

    I'd say so Jeff and quite nicely. I always liked the old Schrade Walden one's with the serial #inside. Yours is the lowest serial # I've ever seen:cool:

    Thanks John:thumbsup:

    Thanks, Paul. I think Calvin or Codger had a Walden 165OT with a super low serial number, only one or two digits, if I remember correctly.

    Wow- Nice Knife Paul!!!! and a nice follow up Augie! Beautiful Knives.
    Jeff- That's a neat Knife with the Keen Kutter Shield, and I could imagine either Cal or Codger having a super low numbered Schrade! :D :thumbsup:

    Yes, actually we BOTH have had the same knife, a 165OT with serial # 0009. It is posted in the Schrade Fixed Blades thread a few days ago. Meanwhile, that 897UH is a super little knife; I had to do a double take when I realized... yes!... 50 years! My, the years have flown! We lost two good member friends this year, maybe more. Keep those cards & l.... er... um... knives coming!
