1980's Schrade Cutlery Classics set

Schrade Cutlery Company was founded in 1904 by George Schrade, and his brothers Jacob and William Schrade. In 1946 Imperial Knife Associated Companies, (IKAC; an association of Ulster Knife Co and Imperial Knife Co) purchased controlling interest in Schrade Cut Co and changed the name to Schrade Walden Cutlery. In 1973 the name was changed to Schrade Cutlery. In 2004 Schrade closed due to bankruptcy.

This forum is dedicated to the knives that are the legacy of this company. This forum is not the place to discuss the replica knives currently being imported using the Schrade name.

1980's Schrade Cutlery Classics set

Postby Rushdewalt » Sat Mar 06, 2010 3:33 pm

Hi, newbie here. I was cleaning out my attic recently and came across this set of pocket knifes that I had forgotten about. This set was given to me sometime in the late 80's and includes 5 knifes with etched blades in a case. The names on the knifes are as follows: Farmer,Rancher,Lumberman,Miner, and Fisherman. The serial number(?) on each knife is B1516. Can anyone tell anything about this set and what it might be worth? I am not really looking to sell it, I was just curious about it.

Thanks for any Info,Pat
