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.
