Schrade 25OT

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.

Schrade also made a single blade version, the 126OT in stainless steel for the European market.
The one I have has white Delrin handles like the SC series, but no fake scrimshaw on it.
I'll have to get a picture of mine and added to this topic.

I had one of those in the original version, with sawcut handles and a "440-C" blade etch. Sold it to some AAPK mate, I think.

LT grew up near the factory and even worked for them after he retired, until they closed.
I recall the knife, I believe it was a true prototype made at the Schrade factory.
