"Do both. Promote your lower-end knives as primary, and then offer fancier knives upon request. See where your market goes."

Bill DeShivs replied to Dennis Hibar's discussion Schrade Walden MIL-K-10043 in the group Switchblades Past and Present
"The blades are carbon steel-not stainless. You seem to be confused on some things. The model you mention was produced from after WW2 until 1957 (approximate dates.) This model was a single blade with black plastic handles. In 1957 the MC-1 was…"

I read somewhere that you work on old Schrade autos. I have a large Schrade Walden with bone handles. The spring works well but blade does not lock up and the lock tab is missing in the handle. The slide lock itself still functions but the "L" tab is gone. Is this something you can tackle?

Thanks,

Ken Ulrich

Hello Bill,

This is Michael Roper. Jan Carter said to contact you about possible repairs to a Hubertus tab release automatic knife. That's probably not the proper way to describe it but I'll learn.

I acquired the knife in a trade and it was needing help. I have a bunch of pictures if you would look at them and give me some idea if it's worth fixing.

Thanks,

Michael Roper    "michaeleroper@comcast.net"
