How many different Copenhagen / Skoal knives are out there?

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.

How many different Copenhagen / Skoal knives are out there?

Postby Meridian_Mike » Tue Nov 20, 2018 8:35 pm

Just when I thought I had the Copenhagen / Skoal knives figured out... I see another one with the Skoal shield.

SO... I am going to post mine and if y'all have a different one....PLEASE post it.

Here is a Cope LB5 I just found last week.....

Yep, I thought there was just 5 or 6.... BOY was I WRONG.... ::facepalm::
(edit.... actually after studying the list, there is only about a dozen of each if you eliminate all the different blade etches)

And Grant... that top one you posted.... I have seen it a time or 2. It's on my want list.
Thanks for posting!

In the old science fiction movies the blob that no one knew what it was always kept getting bigger until it consumed them. I get that feeling sometimes with knives. ::nod:: ::nod::

I only have one true Skoal knife. The SK5.
I have been focused on the Smokey Mtn. Knife Works SFO spinoffs on the Skoal knives. Shown are the ones that I have. A boxed set and two singles. Not shown is a SK154 spinoff with a Schrade shield instead of a Skoal shield made for SMKW. I'm still looking for a Sk36 spinoff, if there is such an animal, to go with my SMKW knives.

Another cope just joined my stable....
I am going to have to try to figure out why some of these come in a nice "all dolled up" box and some come in a plain wrapper.

Here is my latest... the end of the box reads... "COPE 877".

I don't know if anyone is interested but they made a spinoff of your COPE 877 with a Schrade shield too. That's a very cool knife!

Well heck yeah, that is just too cool. They must have had a shield made so they could use the Cope parts they had made up.
Glad you posted that one!

Thanks
