Arched stamp Schrade patterns

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.

Jack Knife Ben sold knives in Chicago in the early 1900's related to the Union stockyards. Here is a picture of a cattle knife marked "Jack Knife Ben". I believe this example was made by Napanoch due to the double fluted punch. I think Schrade also made knives for Jack Knife Ben and they look very similar to your Schrade. Unfortunately I don't have a JKB that I think is Schrade made. Is your knife approximately 3 5/8" long?

I have a fair amount of JKB info that I have on my computer but I can only effectively send it out to 'real' email addresses, because the AAPK system does not like .docx files. Schrade CutCo made them and Schrade Walden even made a few; I have one, an 891 stockman in peachseed bone and with a blade etch.

Ralph, great knife. Looks like Napanoch bone to me. That’s a special knife. Cal from my new found knowledge of jackknife Ben i would guess that was toward the end of their era. Here is one to get back on track. I believe it’s a factory edge with just some light use.

Well so far with the help of this thread and knives I’ve seen elsewhere, I have identified about 20 different patterns with the arched stamp. Can someone tell me if a knife with a clip blade as opposed to a spear constitutes a different pattern? How about the same knife with pinched bolsters?
For some reason i always thought Schrade began with a modest line up and worked their way up to all the offerings we see in the 1926 catalog. Does not appear to be the case. Now that I think about it Walden had been at it for over thirty years before Schrade came around.
Anyway here is my latest addition. Hopefully more members will post some more knives and patterns we have not seen.

Did anyone see this knife recently auctioned on eBay? It has a distinctive shield. I do believe it is a very early Schrade. I found a NYK co Congress with the same shield in a 1908 catalog. Also a Sperry Alexander Congress that’s been posted here on AAPK

I saw that knife on ebay say a week ago. I would have loved to get it but to me the condition of the blades was way down with deep black pitting so I blew it off. Would have been beautiful in good condition. Other than that I don't know anything about it.

The blades did not bother me as much as the cracked bone. I put a bid on it but was not ready to spend as much as it went for

Recently this 2172 popped up on ebay with the description of "Schrade" - I took a chance on it

Thanks ::tu::

I found another one last week. It's a 3-5/8 single blade EO with bone covers. It was gone before Catalog E was made but if it was around it would have been a pattern #1023. It's a little rough -

Somebody did a horrific repair on it at some point. I may get that done right, or maybe not..

Dang Jason.....
Nice 2201... I have got to find me one of those.
The 2201 is the grand daddy of the 2OT. So, I guess that puts it in the Great Grandpaw category.
