My latest Schrade

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.

The Old Timers which are stamped SCHRADE but no sign of U.S.A. are made in China for Taylor Brands or whatever the newest owner is, but definitely after the 2004 bankruptcy of Imperial Schrade.

That is an elegant trapper, a good example of the best trappers Schrade ever made.

Recently I found a nice Schrade SS8173 3 5/8" cattle knife. The blades are almost full and the functionality is good, but the front scale had fallen off. Today I got the knife back from Mr. Herman Williams with 2 new scales and a touch up on the blades. To fix defects (pits) in the blades Herman applied a PMS (Polished Mark Side) finish to the blades. I am thrilled with the work, which is no surprise given who did the work.

Picked up 2 Schrade LB7's at a flea market this morning with belt sheaths for 20 bucks, look to have factory edges, do have to clean deer hair and tissue out of one.

Great example of a great pattern. Love that pen blade combo. Herman always makes his people happy. What a great guy!

Great score! I've been meaning to pick up one myself, but haven't quite yet. I have really enjoyed messing with the knives various makers, in the 1970s, came out with to compete with the 110. So far, my favorite is the Gerber Folding Sportsman II. Slim and light, and holds an edge for forever. The weird shape of the Brownings make them a really bad utility folder--they're best at what they're designed for--hunting.

I found this Copenhagen Schrade at an antique store today, new in the box with paperwork! I love the serrated blade! Any idea on it's age?

It's 24 years old:

COPE33 - Black Sawcut Delrin handle, brass bolsters, special scalloped high carbon sheepfoot blade with can opening tip, "Copenhagen Snuff" etched high carbon clip blade, antiqued brass copenhagen shield, Schrade/Cope USA tangstamp COPE33, Ship Start Jan. 1995 - 100,000 pcs.
I collect Schrade associated knives that were manufactured in the USA.

Appreciate the info! bladecollector. Do you happen to know how these were distributed, places like Walmart or Kmart or knife shops?
