jxr1197..I believe you are a lot closer to the facts than I was. There have been a lot of knives that have shown up that came out of the sample room and that knife could well be one of them as it had no tang stamp. When I was visiting Herman this spring he straightened me out on the term "Lunchbox Special". Folks are using that term to refer to something a worker put together at the plant and then liberated it by carrying it out in their lunchbox. The term actually comes from Schrade allowing workers to take knives home with them to work on...in their lunchbox.. When you brought the finished knife back, Schrade would pay you for the work...it was a way for the worker to earn extra money, hone their skills which benefited Schrade, build pride and loyalty in the workforce and cut down on theft....a happy well paid workforce doesn't steal as much.
I have a hard time trusting someone who doesn't like dogs...but if my dog doesn't like someone, I'll trust that.
