    the schrade is exactly as I received it. needs a good cleaning and sharpening. I didn't want to disturb anything. some people love old. lol my wife loves me and I am old. lol
    I doubt it has any collector value. just a user.

    I didn't see the end of the Post where you said it was a Walden... I was just going by a SWAG (scientific wild a@@ guess) lol. Here lately there's been a pick up in Schrade collectibility in my area. It does have some value.

    OK FIRST OFF I HOPE IT IS OK TO POST THIS COPY OF Guy's MENTION OF THIS NEW FEATURE IN BCUSA.
    it is a cool idea that lets people share their trading experiences on BCUSA. if you are happy with a trade now it is easy to say so. it is also easy to see what former traders
    thought of the trader. please remember to try to solve any problems with the trader before posting negative feedback. I am enjoying my time here on BCUSA. thanks to everyone.

      I have installed a Trader application onto our site. You will see the original poster of a thread in the Classifieds or Trade Blanket area, has a new "Trader History" link above their name in the first post. You can click on that link and either view or submit feedback.

      There are also two other ways to view or provide feedback:
      1. Via a member's profile, under their basic info box on the left side
      2. By clicking on their name in a post and clicking on the "Trader History" at the bottom of the pop-up.
      I hope this is useful to keep up with who you are dealing with, and as time goes on, to help others.

    FYI, I have now 100% incorporated the term SWAG into my vocabulary, and have already used it several times... I shall pay you a royalty of 1/2 penny, per use. You can put it on my tab. :dblthumb:

    Yah, don't worry! It is a good offer. There is no reason this thread has to move at a million miles a minute. Someone will claim eventually and we can all be patient in the meantime.

    edit: just as I posted someone claimed!

    I was trying to resist, I was. But I need jute, can always use a spare canteen cup since I have several of those and use them more than anything else and there's always a chance that this bag will be "the one".

    I agree. The intent is to pass on gear and help others out. Its not supposed to be a speed claiming thread.

    Ok, my offer is this, ConUS only please:

    Ozark Trail dry box (smartphone sized), filled with the following:

    Mylar emergency blanket
    Nite-Ize mini screwdriver/wrench carabiner tool
    Two small Altoids tins (one or both can be filled before sending with PJ & cotton balls and/or drier lint if the claimant wants)
    Steel Warrior five-blade pocket knife, 440 stainless, Chinese IIRC but actually a handy little blade that takes a great edge.
    AAA metal penlight (no batteries, I am apparently out)
    And of course a Chinese permanent survival match (will need lighter fluid, I am out of that too apparently)

    Strapped to the outside is:

    Butterfly knife trainer (blunt blade). Marked Benchmade, but is a knockoff, albeit a good quality one.
    25" length of double-sided Velcro hook and loop strapping (hook one side, loop the other). This stuff is strong and awesome.
    Cannon fuse, about 3' each of Visco fast fuse (green) and slow Crackle fuse (grey). These make excellent fire lighters, especially the crackle fuse.

    Here's my Bushclass post on man-made tinder in which I used the grey cannon fuse. As you can see it burns HOT.

    I can vouch for the quality of these slipjoints (I believe that is a Steel Warrior, correct?). I have a couple that I picked up on a whim at my local Ace, who was eliminating their pocket knife case). I find them to be every bit as nice as what Case has been putting out lately, and they hold an edge about the same as well.

    Best,
    Jamie

    Yep. I had wondered what SW stood for, figured the warrior part from the armoured dude :)

    Yeah, it's a great little knife that like so many other knives I have, I just don't use. I've got a bunch of these little slip joints that sit forlorn and unloved in my knife bucket while the same few knives ride in my pockets.

    My offer:

    A Mikov automatic with ABS scales, stainless blade. It looks double edged but isn't. A very safe automatic, you have to lift the lever up and over to turn it into a button to open the knife. Easy to do one handed, very hard to do by accident. These knives are damn solid and if the spring wears out you can change it without tools.

    Mikov Folders internet store - PayPal accepted

    Raine cordura belt pouch, meant for OC spray but fits the Mikov and another slender item like a thin flashlight or fire steel.

    And yes, a Chinese permanent survival match. This might actually be my last one, unless some more turn up.

    ConUS only please.

    You make me, a professed knife addict look like a hoplophobe! :) Bravo sir.

    It's a sweet blade, but NC is death on automatics so I never really carried it. It was a gunshow impulse buy.

    That automatic was really tempting, but it wouldn't fly in the People's Republic of New Jersey.

    Oh well.

    I was pretty happy when they the restrictions here in Texas a few years ago. It's kind of silly that they are outlawed anywhere, IMO. Being automatic doesn't make them any more or less dangerous. :p

    What was really silly was that until the state law trumped it, you couldn't even carry a locking blade of any type in San Antonio! lol

    The only one I ever played with (cheapie) was MORE dangerous than my current spring assist benchmade. The thing had a hair trigger light enough to spring open and wedge itself in my pocket. That one really was junk, though.
