Imperial called them the "New Jiffy-Jackmaster" and refered to them as a "low priced yet thoroughly practical automatic knife" in their 1936 catalog. In the 1937-38 catalog they were given a MSRP of .25-.29 cents. In the 1952 catalog, they were subtitled "Mystery Knife" and included ad copy ...
"Frequently refered to as a "mystery" or "trick" knife, the "JIFFY JACK-MASTER" has strong appeal as a gift item, souvenir, a premium, or as an advertising give away". The tang marking on this knife was used primarily from the mid-1950's through the early-mid-1980's. It was listed in the 1962-65 and later Imperial Giftmaster catalogs as the "AL-8 Mystery Knife".
