What Schrade RARE knife do you have

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.

Ken, I can tell you with certainty that the WG does in fact stand for Walter Gardiner. He had the first knife of a new production run engraved for him. He has given a few to me over the years. That is a special knife. And yes it would be easy for someone to do if they wanted to.

Wow Doug & Jay... I was not expecting that!  Thanks for the info. The knife did stay local. The Ebay seller was located in Newburgh. I picked it up personally and did ask him about any provenance and all he would tell me is he knew the owner... probably someone Walter gave the knife to...

I forgot to mention that it is a hefty Stockman @ 4 7/8"... the largest in my collection...
'til later....

That is a dandy, Doug! Here is another 818 and a Schrade Cut Co #8814, (that can be found in the 1936 catalog), from my photo files. Just so you don't run out of knives to search for.... :D

The IXL Texas Stock Knife is a superb knife. I have a couple of examples but to own #001 that was Mr. Gardiner's knife is an amazing find.

This early 897UH is serial number S16617 and has a rare (I've never seen it before) tang stamp. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.

Serial #s went from 1 to 100,000, I believe, then attached a letter "A" and another 100,000, then "B", and so on, through the letter S would make it a million plus.

I'm sorry, I should have made it clear that I don't own those knives. I bid on the 8814 two years ago and got out bid. It went for $96. The pictures of it are like knife porn. Enjoy. :D

WOW, luckydog that is an early Schrade Cut! I think that is right after the arched Schrade Cut tang stamp. This is before peachseed jigging was used. Probably about the time George Schrade invented his jigging machine. Sort of a scalloped jigging pattern right after the pick bone and before the peachseed jigging. NYKC has a similar but slightly different jigging pattern but still a sort of scalloped look maybe produced by the George Schrade jigging machine also. Anyway spectacular early and scarce to find example ::tu:: ::tu::
