My Schrades, if I may

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 Schrades, if I may

Post by BatJak » Mon Nov 06, 2017 4:12 pm

I have been crazy about Schrades since a young boy and been collecting for about 40 years.
I spent some time yesterday just taking pics of my schrade collection to post here.
I've been wanting to for a long time, just never got 'a round tuit'. (which is a round wooden coin my dad gave me many years ago)
Forgive the picture quality, I only have my phone to do this.
Anyway...

I'd like to start with my most important knife...my dad's old schrade walden.
Told me he got it at about 9 or 10 years of age, stared at it for the longest time before buying it, gave about $10 iirc.

then a my uncles knife...
notice the plastic bag with a piece of paper in it. My sentimental knives I have placed in a bag with a short note about it. This is so my kids will know not to sell it or give it away when I'm gone.

a few re-purposed knives that have broken blades and such.
the top one is my favorite whittler, scary sharp.

BatJak: You certainly may. Enjoyed seeing your extensive collection and that it includes some scrimshaw. I think the knife you identified as your favorite whittler is actually a stockman. No?

It is indeed a stockman. It had a broken blade and I only gave a few dollars for it
with the intention of reshaping the blades and making it a whittler.
I got the idea after seeing a picture of a knife Schrade made for Walt Garrison.
It was the 8OT frame with 3 sheepsfoot blades only, no spade or clip.

Nice gathering of knives there, especially your Dad's and Uncle's Knives. I have a few Schrades myself and the ones from my family are the most sentimental to me, however, I am very fortunate to own some very Special/Rare knives as well.

Thank you for posting your knives!

BatJak that's quite a collection of Schrades! Great variety, you've got some real gems there. I happen to have one of Walt's knives here, the sheepfoot was his favorite blade for whittling, had to be razor sharp, with a razor edge as well!
