What is Your Latest Old 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.

Peachseed bone, nice condition, a friend in Texas found these for me! I picked them up on Tuesday;

Nice bunch Dave! You have a typesetter's knife. They did it two ways;
a dedicated blade, or by grinding a leather punch narrower at the tip.

Thanks, and yep! I made it to Tennessee. Had a fine time and saw a lot of really good folks. Sold a little 'stuff' and bought a lot of great old Eye Brands at the auction.
You posted a nice selection of old Schrades here. I think I have seen them before.

Nice Jack, Mr. B!!! The bails are pretty simple on most Schrades.
I just got this one from the 'Bay. That's my temporary lanyard - deserves something nicer, but I couldn't quite get it out of my watch pocket easily without one.
Love a good sheepfoot blade, and this one is little used.
