Here is a old Nap punch with a Pat'd number of 1-29-07 on the punch. Levine's pg. 25 says Carman patent punch blade dated April 7 1908 (884,350) made by Napanoch Knife Co.
Is the date on the punch blade for the knife itself? This punch is for a old Nap tool knife. I tried to scan the other side of this punch and could not get a clear picture, no way. All
tools for this knife is stamped as the punch. Maybe I have answered my question!!

Here's a recent acquisition with punch.
If anyone knows the origin or history
behind this one, sure would like to learn more.
Tang on both blades has 'Shapleigh' over 'St. Louis USA'
over 'M.I.Germany'.
My Final Jeopardy guess would be another Parker issue of a defunct
trade name on a pattern of their choice made by same folks as the
Bulldog brand (since this knife has similar bells & whistles.)
Just a guess I could be wrong...again.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Main blade has no snap and sits high in the saddle. Blades have been on one of those damned electric sharpeners too. Seller neglected to mention that. ::disgust::

It was cheap.

O.W. that punch is typical of Utica/Kutmaster knives. Sometimes referred to as a "lightning" punch because of the jog in the recessed area. It is a die-stamped punch.
Likely Utica made it for HSB.

Wosey asked me to expand on the Shapleigh story.
Supposedly parts and unfinished knives were found in the old Krusius Brothers plant which closed ca. 1960.
Parker had his German connection (who was it?) finish the knives, and sold them with his typical COA. They were bringing high prices for a while, some years ago. 8-10 years maybe?
I remember no one would pay more than $50 for a German knife back then, and these would sell for double, for a while. When sanity caught up with things, I bought a few in the $50 range, because they were decent knives at that price. I may even have a pearl one somewhere, with a couple in horn. I was gonna carry one to try them out, but never got around to it.
They have a stupid history, not because of the German maker, but because of the crooked seller! :roll:

Thank ye kindly Upnorth, always nice to hear some of the history behind the blade. Sounds like I came out okay at $40 acquisition cost. Takes some of the sting out of not getting a Shapleigh box or that genUwine Certificate of Authendacity. :mrgreen:
Roots in the Krusius Gebr plant sounds good to me.

Must be a reflection on the left side of the bottom picture because there is no ridge on that side. It is smooth and rounded.
