    Interesting, looks exactly like my Schatt Horticultural Jack, which is Clip/small Sheepfoot from the same end. Must be the same run from the Heritage series, 2007??

    Thanks, Will

    How cool is this craftsman whittler? I have always kind of wanted one of these. The craftsman branded schrades are just so neat; I like everything about it!

    That's a beauty, Paul, from the Schrade Walden era. Earlier than most all the Uncle Henrys, and carbon steel, too (I think).

    That is too cool! I have never seen a Craftsman whittler, only the stockman. Do you know about what year it was made?

    Paul's Craftsman Whittler almost made me forget why I came in here.
    I score a back up Winchester 3907 for a reasonable price. On top of that when I opened the package there was a Winchester 3964 stockman in there as a free gift. I gave the stockman to my buddy, since I already have the stockman and he just had most of his knives ripped off out of his storage.

    Thanks to the unexpected generosity of @315 I got a lovely surprise at the mailbox today. 315 knows of my love for scout knives in general, and BSA in particular, and he sent me this lovely stockman example!

    Here it is with the Lambsfoot I was carrying today (thanks to @Jack Black for the opportunity to become a Guardian).

    But I especially liked how well my new BSA Stockman paired with my regular field work companion :)

    Thanks again 315. This was a truly wonderful surprise.

    Thanks. I'm not exactly sure when it was made. Schrade discontinued this pattern (804 in their number system) by 1975. To my knowledge the first use of these same kind of imitation stag delrin handles began with the first uncle henry in 1967. My best guess is this craftsman was likely made between 1967-1975.

    Beautiful arrival for sure and always pleasing to have a backup or reserve with the BB knives:cool:

    A tough worker by the looks of it, yet handsome :thumbsup:

    Yucatecan knife maker JD Ware, custom large lock back with bull horn covers and coin silver (US quarter) shield. The 3.375" blade is O1 with a “French grey” treatment. This big boy (weighing in at a full 8 oz) originally had lignum covers. Unfortunately, they developed nasty splits at several of the pins. Jeff took those off and replaced them with some nice bull horn for me.

    Thank you Jeff. That's my guess as to age. It's definitely carbon. :thumbsup:

    Paul, I've seen a list that shows Craftsman stopped using that crown shield in 1973, so most likely made before then.

    You betcha! When I received it back from JD yesterday, I told him that I think I would like him to make one of his Navajas for me!

    The Navajas on his site are absolutely superb. I've posted this several times since I got it from Jeff. The finest coin knife. 20190326_124030-1024x935.jpg
