Schrade stockman w/ wood scales

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 stockman w/ wood scales

Postby gwelker62 » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:06 pm

Picked up some various left over Schrade scales recently. Got these that look like wood to me. I don't recall any stockman frame Schrades that had wood. What you experts say of these?

Several SFOs in the last years, Sears for sure. Maybe the tobacco companies, Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, etc., etc. These are just suggestions, but Sears is for sure.

Ducks Unlimited for sure also, although the ones I've seen appeared to be oak.

That Craftsman looks like it has brass bolsters?

I've look for an example of a DU stockman with this dark wood and nickel silver bolsters and haven't found any yet.

My only DU has lighter (oak?) covers and brass bolsters.

Could very well have been meant for Frontier branded knives as well.

Here is a Schrade USA SC505 which is an 8OT frame. With mosaic pins and most beautiful wood i think this likely is customer customized.
I think it might be Desert Ironwood burl. Please correct if you see it as some other wood.

I am sure that it is indeed ironwood. Beautiful custom! I especially like the absence of the shield, which are usually tacky things. That is one nice knife. ::tu::

Those mosaic pins are nice. Been thinking about trying em out. I bet they would look sharp on the slip joints, but not sure how that would work out though. Don't think ya can peen them in place can ya?

Mosaic pins are often used by custom knife makers so ask one of them about peening.
Here are 3 more relatively recent wood handled Schrades.
The Texas Ranger 4 1/8" Trapper is a beauty and one that is rarely seen. Maybe not many were sold ?
The 2 blade Jack is an 8OT frame and might be an EOD knife as i do not recall this as a Schrade pattern.
The Ducks Unlimited 'Muskrat' is unique with the gut hook blade which has a liner lock. I think it is from ~ 2000 and is not an EOD assembly. Very 'neat' knife.
Great wood handles in all 3. Too bad Schrade did not make more 'woodies'.

Those scales look a lot like knives made for Chicago cutlery. I remember hearing schrade made some knives for them in the 80's. I have a single blade hunter with wood handles. It has a schrade+ stamp and very thin profile. The wood grain is pretty distinctive. Could be a lot of things, the ducks unlimited seems likely also.

These are some pics that I saved from the web. Some patterns look a lot like Camillus made knives.

The Chicago Cutlery slipjoints & lockbacks all have wood handles and were made by both Schrade & Camillus.
