This morning I purchased this Imperial "deer head" pocket knife ( the first 7 pictures are the seller's). The blades "should" clean up nicely, hopefully. I bought it as a companion knife for my Kingston "deer head" pocket knife (last 2 pictures).

I just bought this one a few minutes ago. It appears to be an Ulster 63. It has 3 blades and a swelled center. The pattern #, if there is one, is not with the main tang stamp. So hopefully, it's the earlier variation with the pattern # on the other side. The pictures are the seller's. The last picture is what I'm hoping for. I will clean up the knife and repost MY pictures when I get it.

Skip, that one is a steal. I put in a minimum bid on it simply on price and condition. I'm glad you got it. A really great knife especially for the price. ::tu:: ::tu::

The knife looks like it has pins through the bolsters.I would say made before 1960.They started to using the Swindon System in 1960.

Paid for it on Friday but ecop! doesn't ship on weekends so I'll just have to wait until probably next Thursday or so to get it in hand. It's a Winchester with USA stamped on the tang but it sure looks Chinese to me (and the price supports that). I don't recall seeing any Winchester mini-trappers but my memory is getting so bad........... Maybe ~Q~ knows more about it.

Edit: Just found it on Discount Cutlery and in their description they say "Made in China".

All ~Q~ knows about Winchester knives is that I've never seen a (new) made in USA Winchester knife with a retail price of $10.98! The price and the tang stamp, as you and Shearer respectively observed, suggest a Pacific Rim manufacturer.

Winchester did make at least two mini trappers (that I know of): the .22 Hornet (model #29004 1/2) for the cartridge series; and a "small" (3 3/8") Delrin handled mini trapper (model #29009)--both of which I believe were actually made by Queen:
PB060003.JPG
P9150009.JPG


And also model 2904 1/2 which, at 3 7/8", could be considered either a "big" mini trapper or a "medium" trapper (it's 3/8" smaller than a traditional, full-size 4 1/4" trapper, and 3/8" larger than a traditional 3.5" mini trapper--so take your pick)...which I also believe was made by Queen:
P9190024.JPG
P9190020.JPG

This is probably a question for another forum, but as long as we're on the subject...
Are any Winchester knives currently being manufactured in the USA?

Thank you Grant. That last picture was the one that you showed me when I got my first Ulster 63.

Well after missing out on a Geo Schrade wire handle jack AND a Craftsman 9494 knife yesterday (wi-fi down), I bounced back today with another Ulster 63 knife. Unlike the first Ulster 63 that I bought, this one HAS the shield. It isn't the earlier version as the pattern # is on the main tang stamp, not on the opposite side. When I get it, I'll give it a cleaning and repost MY pictures in the proper location. These pictures are the seller's.
