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.

My latest Schrade

Postby 268bull » Sat Feb 19, 2011 5:10 am

I seem to be making up time hunting for knives. I was confined to home having had total knee replacement, but since the doctor cleared me to drive, the hunt for knives is on. Went to an estate sale this morning and found this Schrade+ LB3. It needed cleaned up a bit but is in otherwise great shape ::tu:: Bull ( Dale )

Those are two fine looking Schrade lockbacks Ken. I have an LB5, Copenhagen model to add to my collection also. I do have an LB7, but I loaned it to my son last deer season, so not expecting to see that one come home any to soon. I also picked up a 34 OT the day after I bought that LB3. It had been stored in a drawer in a manscave. It had light rust on the blades. Cleaned up nice . Brand new, papers, only 1/2 of the original box though. Just been a lot of knives flowing in my direction. ::tu:: Dale

Hi Dale, I have some LB1,LB5, LB6 and LB7 Old timers. I also have some UH-LB1 knives, however I will keep looking for an LB3 for my collection.
Over the years I have collected quite a number of 34OT, I have six 2003 knives in un-opend boxes - eight 100th Anniversary in tins - five NY USA in brown boxes - two SS34OT in the wooden box + one, SS34OT that is only half finished. I also have some knives I call give-a-ways, Schrade gave them to some of their byers - they have taken many years to find about ten of them. Ken

Well Ken, I would say that you have quite a collection of Schrades going there! Very impressive. If I should ever give it a thought as to letting go of that LB3, I will most assuredly get in touch. ::nod:: Dale

Hi old mate Ken, How is things over your part of the world ?
At last I found a nice stag handled Schrade D'holder # 320.
Just before Christmas I found an-other D'holder with the Green handle #133.
Since we last talked about D'holders, I have seen 10 or 15 for sale - all come with a Big Story, no numbering or etching.
Some have the wrong sheath, and all had no paperwork.
I once asked if any of them where made in China, I think there must have been a lot of unfinished knives around when Schrade closed down.
One knife had two rivets deep in the handle, could have been a re-ject.
Thank You for the reply.. Ken down here in the sun 8)

Schrade Walden 822 propwood, 1953 to 1956. Four inches. This one is dirty, stains and patina, but has never been sharpened and smooth as glass. Looks like it has been carried a little, with the wood a little dull on the high places. Pretty rare I think, and I like it quite a bit.
