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.

KAW, i like your Cut Co sleeveboard lobster. I have a few of the SCC Gent's type pen knives. Takes a lot of skill to make these smaller pen knives yet most collectors are not interested in them. In hand they are every bit as pleasing as the larger Jack knives.

Nice whittler. Schrade was looking pretty good in the 1980s. Who could see what was coming? :( I notice that there are through pins on that knife, so I reckon it was at least partly made by Camillus. A plus! ::tu::

Thank you Cal and thanks for the information on a Camillus connection.

Very pristine looking looking whittler, John. I have a couple of the Heritage series myself and I think they are a fine knifes. The color of the handle on yours is nice!

Cal - I do not think that Schrade ever switched to the Swinden key for the 804 line. I have several 804s of widely varying age, including a couple I got from you. They all have pivot pins through the bolster, even the Delrin handle ones, which I think would be in the Swinden key era.

I have read somewhere that Schrade's Heritage series was made by Camillus, but it seems like hard data is hard to come by.

You sure could be right about that! None of their lockbacks or folding hunters ever had Swinden construction. I think the 123OT and 124UH did not, either.

They were made for the Kentucky - Tennessee Bicentennial in 1992 from New Old Stock from the 40's I believe. Love the sabre blades on that set. Pretty sure they were an SFO for Parker Frost

Oddly, Kentucky and Tennessee came into the Union during different years, 1792 and 1796, respectively. My notes say a run of 3000 but I don't know if that is accurate. There are no parts of these knives that were made earlier. The blades may be stainless but I have not tested them. The pattern number on their pile sides is 8104. They were also sold individually. I have a cased set available for anyone who needs one.

Notice that the pattern number on the Bicentennials is 8104, while the Heritage pattern numb er is 8041. Am I correct in thinking that the Heritage version is maybe ten years older than the Bicentennial?

The "8104" seems like a mistake in the stamping dye ?

I was wrong about the date of issue on the Kentucky Tennessee Whittlers. They were issued as an SFO for Parker Frost for the 1976 Bicentennial.
