    My dad passed away and I received a Schrade-Walden Uncle Henry 171UH with Sheath and sharpening stone. The serial no. is 00990. When was it manufactured. It has the birds head pummel and carbon steel blade. Thank you for any information .

    I will take a guess; if the tang stamp is a "Schrade - Walden" stamp, I will say 1973-74... Ken

    I'm with Ken. That low of a serial number would likely be a Schrade - Walden making it a 1973 knife.

    Birds head pommel, under 1000 # and SW stamp I'm going with pre-73.

    The 1971 and 1972 catalogs show the knife with bird head pommel. The 1973 catalog does not. Manufacturing dates do not always coincide perfectly with catalog descriptions, but I would be quite sure that knife pre-dates any part of 1973.
