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.

Your knife can be loosely dated to before 1960 because Craftsman started using the crown logo (like on my knives) in 1960. I'm not a fan of Bonite, but I really like that knife!

Joe Kious died in an auto accident in 2014. He collaborated with Imperial Schrade on these knives in (I believe) 2001. They were handled in "50 year old bone," and a run of 1000 only. They are odd knives, but rather pleasing. Speaking of collaborations, I am seeking the red-handled version of the Schrade-Barnett knives.

Schrade Walden 294. Never used, factory grinds—never touched post production.

Good looking Kious, Cal. They are a nice knife. It's been awhile since I've seen a Barnett for sale.
That 294 is sure a good looker Duffer...got to find my drool bucket again.

This one is not here yet; I want to compare it with my known Schrade CutCo and decide whether this one is a Schrade or an Ulster USA. Either way I love the folding hunters. The tangstamp is Craftsman; that's why I do not yet know who made it. And the Mother of Toilet Seat covers? Well, I am gambling that they have settled down. If it had been a WESTERN I wouldn't touch it unless I was having it re-handled. I do take pains to stable my celluloid knives in a loving environment.

Calvin, how do you know this Craftsman is as old as Schrade Cut. Co. ?
Looks like a Schrade made knife. I cannot recall ever seeing an Ulster Knife Co. Folding Hunter.

From that era I think it would be a toss up between Ulster and Camillus, not Schrade. I'm guessing Ulster - here's an Ulster fished out of a google search:

Is the above an "Ulster Knife Co.' or a post 1941 "Ulster Knife" ? I was referring to Ulster Knife Co. owned by Dwight Devine. When he sold to Albert Baer in 1941 the company became "Ulster Knife" and the knives were no longer as high quality as they had been. Still very good but not quite the same.

That's a post '41 Ulster in the pic. There was no cross over, the first Craftsman appeared in 1941 - same year as the ownership change at Ulster and I don't believe Divine's Ulster ever made knives for Sears, Craftsman or otherwise. Unless I'm wrong...it happens.
