Morning Folks . Received this Pearl handled 3 and 1/8 inch long Whittler .
Believe this will date around 1927 to 1940 .
That is a good looking Whittler and looks like it's in great shape.
Nice catch. ::tu::

That is unusual indeed! I've never seen one stamped with the Sears brand like that. Great pick jp! ::tu::

Good point, Greg.
I never made that connection. I had to look that stamp up.
And of course they got their stamp on the mark side and moved Stainless Cutlery to the back.

Thanks fellas. Also thought it different with the two Stamps combined but Sta Sharp on the mark side . And no Stainless shield stamp which thought was unusual as well .

Here’s another little pen knife from Stainless Cutlery Co. New York . This came in a group of knives purchased from Roland . It’s still in excellent condition and if you read the first few pages here he has posted a few pics of it .Other than a little tarnish it looks the same , factory fresh . Measures 3 and 3/8 inches long closed with excellent fit and finish .
The Shine -All is a cleaning product from Hillyard Inc. A goggle search for Hillyard out of St Joseph,Mo. states in part : Founded in 1907 we’re a leading Manufacturer and Distributor of cleaning and hygiene solutions. We help our customers realize clean,safe and healthy facilities and lowest costs .
It goes on more to show distributors all over the country. Even have a distributor here in the valley at a local Auto parts store . So the company has been thru the depression and 2 World Wars and is still around . The Shield on the mark side looks to be a barrel with the Shine - All logo .

This one is the 1st STAINLESS CUTLERY CO for me, when I saw it on eBay I realized it was something I didn't recognize after looking at the tang stamp. Turns out both blades have the same stamp. I have no idea what the black handles are made of, pretty sure it's not bone. Great snap, both blades, don't think it has been sharpened but the edges have been abused over the years. The little pen knife measures 3 1/8" closed.

Thanks for the kind comments, fellers!
Learning this brand was part of the Camillus effort to introduce stainless steel.

That's a really sweet little knife! Whatever the covers may be made of, I like that deep jigging.
