Back in the 70s, they were standard issue to mechanic/ electricians in the coal mines in worked in. I don’t know the model, but they were single blade with a rosewood handle with a small bail to attach to your belt. We used them to cut trailing cables when making splices, and you carried a small file for sharpening them. They would take an edge easily but wouldn’t stay sharp long.
By the mid 80s, someone figured out the Stanley razor knives were a better option.
