883 861

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.

Posted else where but I thought I would put them here. Got them at a garage sale for $3 a piece. Not in good condition but I like them. The 861 was evidently a fancier knife as it had a little file work on the back.

Also picked up a melon tester at the same garage sale. Sorry if it doesn't belong here.

They all certainly do belong here; nice catch at a good price. Nice tools for your pocket. The file work you mention is actually accomplished by some sort of rolling or milling operation instead, and the result is often called "milled liners," or "jimped liners" (and sometimes springs). Both of those knives were/are valued for their pocket friendly rounded bolsters and more slender girlish figure.

Thanks tongueriver, I looked on them as hok and they do have a good feel to them. They've been sharpened to the extreme over the years but that just means they were used. And thanks for the fyi on the milling operation instead of file work.
