SCHRADE 2OT

Postby tjmurphy » Thu Apr 20, 2017 12:25 pm

I've been under a couple of impressions about the SCHRADE 2OT, one is that the handles were bone and another, though not necessarily related to the 2OT alone, is that bone doesn't shrink. Take a look at this pic and comment. Is it a rehandle or did the 2OT come with handles other than bone?

I think this may be the "2nd version" of the 2OT that had different bone looking something handles? I've seen these before, on 8ot's and 2ot's, all the ones I've seen were shrunk to some degree.

T.J. you have been disabused of your first impression because you are correct in your second impression. Those handles are that black shrinkie dink stuff used in the '40s & '50s (and maybe up into the '60s ::shrug:: ).

A little off topic, but the gec 77 washington jack is very similar to the 2ot IIRC. since schrade went overseas, have they done a taylor 2ot? I have a teardrop jack that is decent I got a few years back. I don't recall seeing a real 2ot except in pics.

The 2OT is the reason I got a #77 Washington Jack. Very attractive knife.

Guess I learned something today, and that is a good thing. Since this is a knife that I am chasing, I am going to have to be very careful of what I might buy. Didn't know that the 2OT was made with anything but bone handles. Thanks for the lesson. ::tu::

The 2ot is first seen in the schrade catalogs in 1961 alongside the 8ot. They had genuine bone handles and were the debut of the old timer line. I don't know when, where or why the shrinky dink handles came along. I think they came later, maybe they were one of the bone alternative handles that schrade experimented with. They are not common either.

The Schrade Walden 2OT was in the 1960 and 1961 Catalogs. This is when they introduced the 8OT in the same red bone. The 2OT was only produced for two years and it was only produced with smooth red bone.

Nothing new, but, I'm confused! ::shrug:: Only bone? Second generation with something other than bone?
