ADDITIONAL INFO: I was cleaning out a spare closet in our guest bedroom when I discovered a large plastic tote of Imperial Schrade products most of them in clampacks and some that were bulk packed after the Schrade bankruptcy sale. I discovered that Schrade had gone out of business in the summer of 2004 within about a month of the time they close their doors. I bought a lot of Schrade knives from stores before their stock was depleted. The up side to storing them in the closet is that it’s a nice dry and heated environment, which helps prevent rusting & pitting of carbon steel. From about 2005 until 2008 we made several trips annually from Oregon to Montana to visit grandchildren. We would go different routes so I could find hardware stores I had not tapped yet and look for knives. I purchased a number of the clampack Imperial Jackmaster knives from an Ace Hardware store in a little mining town in Northern Idaho, (I can’t remember the name of the town). It appeared that some of these were relatively new with clear plastic clampacks and a few of the clampacks were yellowed with age, perhaps from being in sunlight also. I had four patterns but the Barlows are all gone, I have two Kamp Kings, two the fish knives and one jackknife remaining.
The plastic package for the jack knife is yellowed with age but not as brittle as clampack of one of the Kamp Kings, it was actually cracked and partially broken away. The card inside the clampack of the jack knife is dated “© 1987 Imperial Schrade Corp.” This knife was listed in the Schrade catalog and pricelists until 2004. Here is a piece of old Schrade history for your collection.
