Post your Slenderino Knives

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.

Wally, nice 233
Slenderino is a term that is probably only used here on AAPK by Schrade collectors. Generally it refers to the 897 style of knife with the slender turkish clip blade...at least that is my interpretation.

I really like this pattern as well, and have several good ones. This butter & molasses Schrade Walden is my favorite.

This is a Schrade Walden 897UH from the late 60s with coined liners.

Not too common tang stamp on this particularly beautiful 897UH.

Some years back Hal B (Trailhawk) and I were having a lot of Schrade conversations and one of us came up with that term to describe the 3 9/16 slender frame stockman knives. I like to include the slender 4 inch stockmans under that heading as well, very pocketable with their girlish figure and rounded bolsters. More AAPK proprietary terms would include HOK (honest old knife) and HET! (a corruption of hey!). You might not see these terms outside these hallowed halls. Here is an 861 openstock Schrade that I call a 'slenderino.'

Man, that 861 is nice. I'll give you five bucks CASH MONEY for it right now! Otherwise, I'll have to hunt one down.

Thanks for the definitions. I've been wondering what "HET" meant.

Thanks dweb and UnderDawgAl, I got the Kabar at a gun show for $25, and think it has the best jigged Delrin handles I've come across

Hey! You got one of those red bone knives! That's only the 3rd one of those I've ever seen. After I got mine a few years ago I have been looking for others to show up. That's a beauty! Now I have a witness to the fact that they are a true Schrade Limited Edition and not a Taylor. (as some have suggested) Sure wish I knew the story on those. Glad you got one and posted the pictures!

Mustanger, I didn't realize they were that uncommon. I happened to see it on Ebay and the price was so low that I couldn't help but bid on it. Absolutely not Taylor made. I sure can't see a pin in the bolster so I'd bet on Swinden.

You got a great deal. I paid $11 more for mine. I don't know how uncommon they are. I just know I've only seen 3. I didn't see yours on ebay, so.... :lol:
