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.

Make that 5.. I like the Butter and Molasses scales.
Here's an old Cut. Co. razor, a 234K and a 863 EDC that Herman put some Candy Cane Celluloid on.

dweb1897... that is a very interesting grouping you posted. I didn't know Schrade offered straight razors. :o Guessing they are pretty rare? Luv the handle on that one. ::tu::
Sweet candy cane handles... How long ago did Herman create that one?

KAW, I sure haven't seen many Schrade straight razors. Herman Williams tells me that those handles are not stock as Schrade never used the barn door hinge bolsters, to his knowledge. At one time he worked on a lot of straight razors so I'll accept his judgement. The 233 is one of my favorite patterns and having a small collection of B&M it was a necessary addition. Unfortunatley I can't display it with my 233's because of the chance of out-gassing. I am however putting together a small display of celluloid knives. The 863 with the Candy Cane celluloid along with this 233 in Christmas Tree celluloid were done by Herman this past September with the idea of adding some color to the display. He sent this Keen Kutter straight razor with Tortoise Shell celluloid handles at the same time as a gift. The Christmas Tree and Candy Cane celluloid is some he has had on hand from his days at the Schrade factory. He believes it was of a newer style and hasn't had any problems with it out-gassing. Still, I'd rather be safe than sorry.

You guys that are showing off those straight razors......

Have y'all ever tried to shave with one?
(I have never been able to gather up enough fortitude to try it)

I have seen it done so I know it is possible to do without TOO MUCH blood loss.....

I have a few because of the history and I love the decoration some of the older ones have.

Mine is a Fredrick Reynolds.... not a Schrade....(sorry)

Those are pretty handles.

I have never used a razor, I've seen it done and that's as close as I'm going to get. I won't be putting a paper thin razor sharp blade to my throat and definitely won't let anybody else do it. I have a beard and just use a trimmer anyways.
