NO! How did you get that? Loggerhead Tools made it first, HERE. Sears WAS buying them & reselling them. Til this year, they decided to sell their own, which is made in China. They ripped off Loggerhead.

I've not purchased from Sears in yrs and not from KMart since 9-11 when they decided to pull all gun from the shelves while we were under attack . :o :roll: like the terrorists were gonna come in KMart for weapons??? they repealed the second amendment in their store ,by not allowing honest Americans to legally purchase a weapon to portect thier family when we were being attacked.At the time we did not know to what extent that attack was goning to be.
