The 108OT Junior was made from 1963 through 2004. Yours was made between 1973 and 1999 or so. Sorry it can't be dated any closer than that.
If any Knife parts are worn , can the bits still be found , dont want to put crap pieces in , would rather go genuine parts even if i have to get them from USA sent down under

They weren't really made to be worked on, however a good cutler can do whatever is needed using parts from a donor knife. But the cost would exceed the value of the knife. Better, IMHO, to retire the defective one and buy a new or nearly new one. An exception might be a knife that belonged to grandpa or dad. New originals are still available if you look carefully, even in Oz!

That is an open stock knife which was made from 1957 through 1986 after which it was discontinued. That example was made some time after 1972. So 1973 - 1986 is the time frame in which it was made. For further topics, please start a new thread.

Members here have been very kind and patient with me and I appreciate it.
Obviously I am a new collector, and I don't have the funds to purchase my textbooks yet. ISBN 1-58160-283-9 for legitamate different reasons. I may be slow, but I have been paying attention where I can, lol. I appreciate you guys, and this knife will not be my last by far.
This site has sparked my interest in several types of knives that I would like to have. That said, I have posted a couple of times in the wrong forums during the learning process about this one.
I have from what I understand is a schrade Walden model 750 with the usual : dec.21'09, sept.13'10, and June 6.'16. on the small blade. Orange reddish with black, marbled celluloid handles with a closed length of 3 3/4".

I've found a few with different colors handles in the 3 3/8" variety but none exactly like mine. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Ok total noob here I have stumbled upon this wonderful forum in my quest to find out as much info on a knife I’ve had for at least 25 years use to look after it oil and clean it every month, but then in a move I lost track of it for 10+ years. I have found the knife again and have decided to find out everything I can about it.

I tried to post pictures to help but not sure why they aren’t coming up






I hope to find out as much info as possible, thanking you kindly in advanced.

it’s an uncle Henry Schrade U.S.A. 171UH
With serial number 61415 still has original sheath but no wet stone, sheath has some damage but can be repaired, the blade it’s self is in perfect condition, with original pattern and what looks like pitting, but no rust at all

Hey Brian, Welcome to the forum. I believe you have to have at least 10 posts before you can post an image or link. This I believe is pretty standard in most forums to prevent spam posters.

I would imagine some time in 1973, maybe late 1972? Not sure exactly when they switched tang stamps during production.
