Thanks for posting and hosting, Scott.

Of note in this 1977 catalog is the change Xacto made that year for their product numbering system.

If one looks at the Index (page 30...the 'third page' of the index, since the index pages starting at 28 aren't numbered), you will see a note there from Xacto that says they are switching to a new numbering system (basically, either three- or four-digit numbers; no more alpha-numeric product numbers) to make processing orders more efficient.

Just snagged a 1960 Xacto catalog, coming out of Canada. May take a couple weeks to get here, but once it arrives I'll scan and send to Scott for posting. Been kind of a dry spell here lately on finding any additional vintage catalogs.

Sounds great, Earl.
I was going to ask you if you hauled anything new in.
That 1960 one will be a good addition to an era with little information.
Still hoping you find something pre-WWII.

Thanks for hosting all these for us Scott.

Of the catalogs we have so far, coming up from the 1949 catalog, this 1960 catalog features the first appearance of the 'slide top' knifes sets #84 and 85 (page 7). Since we don't have any catalogs from the latter 50s yet, those sets could have first appeared in that time frame possibly.

Also (again coming up from the earlier catalogs), this is the first appearance of individual tools available on shrink-wrapped yellow and red striped cards (pages 10-11). My very first Xacto knife, the #8, came from Centuri on that type of shrink wrapped card. It cost 29 cents!

Finally, note that Xacto inadvertently reversed the graphics for the #82 and 83 knife sets at the bottom of page 6.

Earl

The #10 and #20 retractable blade knives look really cool.
Must be very rare. Never heard of them, will add to my list of wanted items.

No #89 and #99 chests in this catalog.
