It may have run into , but it was not done this way much beyond a six month duration, and that may even be generous. The low “S” stamp ran after that for a year or so, and probably into The separate “S” stamp ran from that time through and into Note that while productions dates are pretty clear, you could still receive a blade stamped in an earlier version but made into a complete knife at a later time.
This would happen most often on less popular models that may have had some earlier stainless forgings sitting in a bin to be retrieved for use at a later time. Of course this instance is somewhat of an anomaly. If you look closely and see enough of them, you can tell the difference rather easily. Additionally the shape of the “S” changed a bit that was more balanced in shape top to bottom. Being that the use of the “SS” stamping was early and of such short duration, compounded with the fact that the percentage of blades requested out of stainless steel was very small as a percentage of total production at that time, there are not too many examples around.
I don’t know but would guess it is no more than a couple hundred, based solely on the quantity I have observed over the years. This may be due again to the fact that not too many knives were ordered in stainless steel during that period, so a forged stainless blade may not have gotten stamped for one reason or another.
Perhaps the forger forgot he was forging stainless.

This “forge-date” does not indicate when the blades were finished into knives, sheathed and sold, only when they were hot stamped with the Randall Made, Orlando, FLA trademark.
Please examine these three groups of pictures of blade stamps. In this last picture is one anomaly. It is a stamp on a blade that is earlier than the date of the sheath and other knife characteristics. About mid-late? The comma between Orlando and FLA was reduced in height, a small space was introduced between the comma and FLA, and because of that, the? Here is a summary picture of stamps that overlap the apparent change.
A pocketknife is a foldable knife with one or more blades that fit inside the handle that can still fit in a pocket. It is also known as a jackknife jack-knife or a penknife , though a penknife may also be a specific kind of pocketknife. The earliest known pocketknives date to at least the early Iron Age. A pocketknife with a bone handle was found at the Hallstatt Culture type site in Austria, dating to around — BCE.
Many folding knives from the Viking era have been found. They carried some friction binders, but more often they seem to have used folding knives that used a closure to keep the blade open.
