Looking for a Schrade 8OTY and a Schrade 8OT main blade (I don’t believe they’re Interchangeable). I’ve got two knives Im working on that could benefit from having their blades replaced.
The Schrade 8OTY has already been assembled as a single blade knife but once I got it together I liked everything about it except the pitting on the main blade (it’s deeper and more intrusive than I originally thought). Were these Schrades Chinese made? I don’t see a USA stamp on the blades.
The Schrade 8OT is in process. The main blade isn’t pitted but has been re-profiled a bit and I’d just as soon replace it if I can find a suitable blade.
I know there were a lot of surplus Schrade blades out there awhile ago so Im hoping someone has a few of these sitting in their spare parts bin.

I have some blades Jeff... The 8OT & the 8OTY blades should be interchangeable. It sounds like maybe the one you have is Chinese. All of the US blades are stamped USA.
I don't have a new 8OTY blade, just the 8OTs but if they are both u.s. made they should be interchangeable. The Chinese knives are different size, different configuration and different internal Construction. I doubt the blades will interchange.
