Got a minute for a quick little story about this knife?

I walk into an estate sale last week and a I see a coffee can with numerous knives sticking out.  I fall into a mesmerized state of bliss as I believe I’ve found the MUHGILLA SCORE of vintage American made knives.

 Immediately I grab the can off the bench…..there were probably 10 knives in it!  All had round stickers with a 10 or a 5 on them.  Heck, I’ll give them more than a nickel or dime for each I’ll give them like $3.00 for ALL (thinking I was being generous).

As I start to scan the garage for other tempting deals, the estate sale attendant asks…..”You’re gonna buy ALL of those?”  Being the wise A$$ that I am I thought…..why is there a law against buying all of them….but I didn’t say anything except….YEAH – I figure I’ll give you 3 bucks for all of ‘em!

She gives me that tilted head look only a dog can make, and says, “Those are priced in dollars.”

Are you kidding me I silently think…..as I turn and place the entire can o’ knives back on the table.

Dang blast it!!   Oh well, there went the mother load score of knives.

HOWEVER, I was able to pull this vintage Schrade Cut Co. Walden NY Knife out of the pile even though I could not read the tang stamp (and can only barely see it now).   The reason I bought it was because of the cool Butter & Molasses celluloid handles!!

The tang stamp dates is this 2 blade knife to 1917 – 1946.  You can barely see the stamp on the pen blade, pile side.
