Help needed finding an allusive Scrimshaw knife.

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.

Help needed finding an allusive Scrimshaw knife.

Post by Schradenut » Mon Dec 16, 2019 5:44 am

I am at my wits end trying to purchase one of these Scrimshaw knives. I haven't seen it come up on Ebay for the past 6 months and i am now seeking the help from the many Scrimshaw collectors on AAPK.
This knife is an 505SC Stockman from the 1989 American Outdoors Collection and features two Ducks on water.
If anyone has a spare one of these in 'as new' condition in the box, with papers, then i would be very interested in buying it. As usual, this is the last one for the set.
I live in hope.
Regards,
Tony.

Many thanks for seeking out the knife i am after Jase. Unfortunately neither of them are the right knife.
Check out this pic for comparison. The front Duck's head is crunched down on his body and there are more reeds in front of him. Both knives were produced in 89 and my original pic is off the Flyer. Why these adjustments were made is a mystery on its own.
Did they produce the flyer and then change the Scrim prior to production? I have seen and owned many of the one you pointed out, but never the one i am after.

Is one a 1982 of Mallards and the other a 1989 of Wood Ducks?

Update;
Opps! The ducks on the 1982 are flying. Never mind. lol
