Yesterday's mail call. Definately a balancing Yin to my M. May knife's Yang.
I found this in the mail today:
I almost hesitate to post something on this devilish page number, but these are too sweet to ignore. Just arrived last night, a mid 1970s Boker 7588 medium stockman, and a Schrade Walden 8OT with match strike long pull. Schrade experts, does the match strike pull indicate a narrower date range than 1965-'73? Thanks in advance!
I needed another Pioneer like a hole in the head, but it was too inexpensive (and too purple) to *not* buy this.
Came home to a pile of mail and a pristine Schrade 895.
Dealer Exclusive Buck 055.
The "Exclusive" features are the nickel silver bolsters instead of the standard brass, a drop point blade instead of the standard clip blade, and Indigo Blue slabs instead of the standard Walnut slabs. I'm unclear how many were or will be made but the first 100 knives are numbered.
Beautiful, Rick, and the serial number matches your age, too!
Both very nice Jeff. No expert here Jeff (I just play one on TV) but I recall that from a thread in the Schrade form and if I guessed as to who clued me in, I think it was Codger or thawk. I had questions when it came to Schrade NY and the Schrade Walden time stamps and the matchstrike did narrow down dates in that 65-73 era.
Yes to Jeff and Paul, that's the earlier one for sure!
Jamie sold one in the Thread ( link below ), I am not sure if it was my old one- I think it was? with the Brass Shield, that was a late 60's - someone got a good buy - I nearly nearly pulled the trigger on that one....
Just unboxed and going straight in the pocket...
Been searching for a bone Camillus 69 for a while now. Definitely the crown jewel in my Camillus collection.
Long line tang stamp so according to my research sometime between 1960 - 1964, although Camillus can be inconsistent.
No cracks or chips in the bone. Milled liners and fancy backspring spacer, good snap on all three blades and no wobble. Definitely used but very well cared for. And it only took a few passes on a ceramic hone to get all the blades near shaving sharp.
I like mine a lot. Built like a tank. The innovative split lockbar means the blade has to be centered on every one produced.
They may be Chinese made, but AG has wonderful designs, fantastic users, and reasonable prices.

I took a hit in the pocketbook, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to buy these as a group. Fantastic knives! Apologies for my poor photo skills...
@BenjaminRush Worth the hit I'd say That's a formidable arsenal of Big Guns
Those make a quality GEC collection all on their own.
Just picked up a nice Schrade Walden 4" yella stockman, with long swedge and match strike pull.
You landed a nice one Jeff.
I picked up a Master Mechanic today, AKA 89OT. There are some spots due to storage but I don’t think it’s ever been used....I’ll have to rectify that
