Schrade 153UH

Postby MJF » Sun Mar 11, 2018 1:40 am

Hello,

I picked up this Schrade 153 UH at garage sale today. It has Uncle Henry on one side of the guard and it has what appears to be a serial number on the other side of the guard. #230822 Can someone tell me when this knife was made with this information? Thanks

I will stick my neck out and say 1980 ish. The first ones (1973 and maybe a little beyond) started the serial numbers and had non-stainless steel blades. At some point they quit serializing them and I think long before 1990. There are brazillions of these 153s; they made them from 1973 until the bankruptcy in 2004.

About 1985 I purchased a serialized 153. Can't remember the # of it however. But late 70s to early 80s would be a good guesstamation for yours though.
