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.

Nice collection. ::tu::
It is great that you have family heirloom knives! ::nod::
I have my granddad's 34OT with a Wharncliffe mod on the clip blade and my dad's 225H and 2 or 3 other Schrades that were dad's.
They're are my favorite Schrades! ::nod::

What a fine gallery of knives! I see some of my favorites in there. I bet you had fun rounding them up for the photo op. Thanks for sharing them. But don't stop now; there are some you don't have yet. :lol:

You have some very nice patterns there, BatJack....
Tom, I'd say you're being a might modest when you say you have a "few" Schrades .

It has been an enjoyable hobby.
I have a bunch of knives that aren't schrade but these are my favorite.

I found the 51OT Big Timer in a small town surplus store in the corner of a display case.
It was in a clam pack if I recall. I snatched it up because when I was little I remember one
in the display at the local Gibson's discount center back in the 70's sometime.
I thought it was the bee's knees because of the size and shape of the blade.
Never did get one though.... (time travel 30 odd years to the future) BAM GOTCHA ::ds::

Never have carried it, just whittled with it a bit. :D

My wife doesn't understand my knife obsession.
One time, while putting away dishes, I jokingly said "ya got enough tupperware in this cabinet?"
To which she replied "ya got enough pocket knives?"
I shut up at that point... ::teary_eyes::

Listed in the catalogs 1978-1981 only. One of my many favorites. ::tu::

There is only a little blood. Very appropriate, especially if you're whittling ::tu:: :D :D

I had some rolls out today, moving knives around. This thread seemed appropriate for this picture of my "number one" schrade roll of cuts and walden's. All bones in this except for my favorite pearl. The chain jack was in here but I moved it to my "number two" roll of pre delrin's. A third roll is needed.

The collection has come a long ways since I started with old schrades. I'm very grateful to have these fine pieces of history.
