I was fortunate enough to see and handle Mark's stag western states stockman in person at the tulsa show, it's a fantastic old knife.


This is one I had and sold recently. An old utica with no stamp and just an etch. It had some very cool winterbottom bone handles that were mostly black in color. The blade was ground very thin, it cut like you wouldn't believe.

Always looking for excellent to mint condition schrade cut co and walden knives. I really like stockman and cattle patterns.

Picked up this Hibbard Spencer&Bartlett pen with an interesting etch " High School Store", I don't know if high schools have stores anymore and if they do I'll bet they don't sell knives.

Fabulous bone on that Sword Brand EO.

Quite a few bottles of Old Log Cabin whiskey passed through my Dad when I was a boy, The bottle label showed an old log cabin with, I think, a harvested field as background.

You should search for such a bottle to go with your knife.

Don't know if it's still made. It was cheap, else Daddy wouldn't have been buying it. Four Roses, Old Log Cabin, etc. was what he brought home. He was not a connoisseur. ::disgust::

Wouldn't you just love to know the story on that High School Store knife?

I found six of my Keen Kutters have a stamp or etch that is at least partially visible. The Scout Knife etch is the hardest to see, takes just the right light to see it, and the stamp on the dog leg is light but similar to the above knife.
