Just got this '02/'03 Duck Stamp knife. I'm impressed. I think all of my Schrades are the saw cut brown Delrin. I like it. I grew up with it. Its tough and IMHO some of the best looking Delrin out there. But this knife? Wow! Schrade could really do some nice bone when they wanted too. This is a very nice knife. Actually nicer than I expected
I got this Old Timer 7OT for Christmas yesterday! Very cool knife. I've never had a folder this big - very heavy duty!!! It's carbon steel and has 4 pins - pretty cool.
it came with a schrade sheath,
but either its the correct sheath and they kept something else in it like a pair of pliers or something, or the sheath is from a bigger tool, as the 7ot is really loose in it, or they treated the sheath with something that softened the leather too much and made it floppy. either way, I'm not bothered by the sheath because the knife is very cool.
That is a really great user knife. The 1095 steel gets very sharp. Having the four pins dates it to the first 2-year production period when it was listed in the 1979 and 1980 catalogs. It didn't show up again until a 1990 flyer and the 1991 catalog as a 3-pin knife.
