Any chance of a sticky for fixed blade Schrades?

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.

I thought I better post this as I have had this knife since I bought it new in '89. I only carried it a couple times and it has spent all these years in a box under my bed. It was only this spring that I took it out and re-oiled the blade. It has very little patina and no rust that I can see, however, I did have it in it's original leather sheath for most of that time (I now have it in a cardboard sleeve that I made out of an Apple Jacks box as I lost the original cardboard sleeve).

I also have an LB1 and an LB5 with a broken lock spring that I bought in "86. The first Schrade I bought was an LB7, but I sold it soon after as I really didn't like the size.

Those 165s are fine knives. The original sheath would have been leather. Thanks for showing it; maybe you can put it to work.

One of the Original samples that were produced before the factory closed.

Tom, you sure know how to make a fellow jealous with that Bowie... All I got are these itty bitty ones. I suppose that tile is from the Schrade Plant too.

Cal, I got these two slightly different models stamped SCCO (Schrade Cut Co) last week to go with my first one. I thought I'd post the sheath that might be original to the larger model to the right (1st photo) since you inquired about a sheath with my 1st SCCO. The knife on the left was the one in that sheath but if it's an original SCCO sheath (which I have no clue) then I think it would belong with the knife on the right based on size. There's no markings on the sheath but it looks old enough and the brass snap button is not your everyday plain type either. Also, it's a left-handed sheath. ::shrug:: What do you think?

In the 2nd photo are the other SCCO knives and then their sheaths below that, accordingly. Both sheaths that came with the new arrivals were a package deal and are pretty old but the sheath in the middle I doubt belongs to either knife. The sheath on the right is the new one that I bought for my 1st SCCO. I dyed & burnished it. Thanks

I think the sheath on the left could be original but that is just a guess. If another one of those knives surfaces with the same kind of sheath then we would have a near 100% likelihood of an original match. Until then we can just pretend.

Beautiful Schrade blades, gentlemen. ::tu:: Some I have never seen before. Very nice. ::nod:: These, on the other hand, are your average Joes - 154OT Drop point, 158OT Guthook (not my favorite) Schrade Walden 165OT Woodsman, NOS 152OT Sharpfinger & my user 152OT Sharpfinger.

What the heck is that thing? Looks like something someone cobbled together on a bad day. You'd think he would have at least wiped it down.

Finally got the last piece to this set-as far as I know---The Bowie
It's not like new but it's in good shape.
The sheath is in wonderful shape for being about 45 years old.

Here is a favorite of mine I acquired from one of our forum stores.
I have a leather handled one too but wanted a "backup".
You guys know how that works. :D

Those 49r knives are very cool. I have been looking for a very particular one for a long time... maybe some day. The sheaths on those Craftsmans is so stiff they almost seem to be made of wood. VERY durable.
