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.

The handles on the S-W stock knife above are what Schrade called "Merschaum"(sp ?) bone or maybe "Bonite" ? There is confusion regarding the pre Delrin synthetic handles as to exactly which handles these terms refer to,

Like everything about that one Dale. The bones, the bolsters, the blades. That is a great pick up. ::nod:: ::nod::

Such a graceful pattern. I think it is one of the most sought after of all Schrade Cut Co knives. I am jealous !

I've had a Schrade Walden

233 for years that I found in a washing machine at a laundromat. It was well worn, and the blades had been sharpened down a lot. I thought that the owner must love this knife, so I tried to find him by placing a note at the laundromat, but to no avail.
I thought it was a 283 by the tang stamp. The middle 3 looked exactly like and 8. I've been trying to find a NOS 283 for years, but none ever showed up for sale. A few weeks back I bought a jeweler's 10x Loupe, and discovered that it was a pattern 233. I went to ebay, and there it was. A NOS 233, so at long last I had a new one to go with my much loved old 233.

Good show, Wally. You will find the three and eight problem tang stamps on several Schrade knives. The most common one is an 84OT stockman tang stamp which is actually a 34OT tang stamp. There are others.

Very knice Wally... Great story. ::tu::
Dale... WOW!... There is something to be said about finding such a knife the old fashion way... at a knife show... ::groove:: ::tu::
... and speaking about such a prize... while it was back in September I acquired it at a show... it is still my latest Schrade... so I guess it still qualifies...

Wally, I applaud your choice in pocket knives. My very first knife was a Schrade Walden 233. While I no longer have that particular knife, I've picked up a few others that are in my collection, as well as a couple for EDC. ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

Dale, that's a great knife and has the earlier rooster comb secondary blade which is very hard to find, most had this type of secondary blade or as Lyle likes to call them "the secondary primary".
