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.

KAW don't blame you at all for outbidding me...that is a particularly nice slenderino. As to the 8OT, while it seems to be a popular pattern among most collectors, that one is only the 2nd one in my collection.

I got this one for Christmas, a Schrade Walden SS700 melon tester, looks to be from the '60s, excellent condition.

I like those melon testers, too. They are handy around most fruit, and oh so cute. ::tu::

Very nice Dale! Like the subtle but noticeable color changes in the bone!

Thanks guys for the comments.
I think bone has more character than other handle materials with the possible exception of ivory. I like the way the bone changes as I'm working with it, hafting and polishing it. I also love the way it changes with age like it has in this knife.
