show your uncle henry's

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.

This knife is serial #04208 it has the fat handles. I have a skinny handle SW #09496. I also have a SW127 that came from a Schrade display:sw69uh this display is listed in the 1969 catalog and the serial # is in the 18000’s. The 127 was the second uncle Henry pattern introduced. It first appeared in 1968. I’m not sure it was initially a big seller as it was replaced by the 227 for 1970 and 1971. After that it is in every catalog up until 1988 where it did not make it back into the line up. The 124 which is a kinder gentler version of the 127 made a brief appearance 85-88 and then that disappeared also. Unused 124uh’s only occasionally come around. I do not think many were made relative to other patterns. I will check serial numbers on my other sw127uh’s. I’d love to dial in on this. Thanks for posting your knife. It is a beauty.

The Schrade Walden 127UH 'fat boy' knives are one of my all time favorite knives. The serial # on the top one is 09532. It is listed in the 1973 catalog as a "King Ranch". But I can't say if it had the larger girth at that time. The catalog snapshot is from the 1968 catalog and is a holy grail set if I could find one. This has been discussed before here and a member said that he didn't believe that these sets were ever sold. But at any rate, no one that I know of has ever seen one. Hinged box, gaucho sheath and hone stone....for a whopping $15.00.

Is the 09532 fat handles?? Let me know if you find one in the box as shown in the cat pic. At this point I don’t believe they went with that packaging. That one must be with the photographer.

Yes, and the other one too. I don't know the serial number on it though since I don't have that one anymore.

I recently found this 885UH in a local antique store. It appears to have never been carried or used, though the red foam is basically dust, and there is some tarnish on the shield and top bolsters. .

bhuber,
::welcome:: to AAPK!
That's a fine stockman, a very popular style. If it wasn't in mint condition, it would be a great everyday carry.

Thanks for the welcome! That’s been my line of thinking on that knife. It’s the second one I’ve found this year but I sold the other one, which was much more used.

The earlier 897's have very nice looking delrin. If that was a piece of stag it would be primo.

Always looking for excellent to mint condition schrade cut co and walden knives. I really like stockman and cattle patterns.

That one is kind of an ugly duckling and I almost didn't bid on it. But I didn't have a Schrade Walden and the price was right.
I think about having Herman Williams stagging a slenderino from time to time. But I haven't acted on it yet. I should contact him about it. All I have to do is pick one that I already have and send it to him. ::shrug::
