Ya can't fix stxxxx

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.

The #708 was last made in 1979 in retail for $8.95. The handles appear to be Delrin judging from the pictures.
That's an amazing increase in value in a mere 40 years, if it were true! That is a huge if!

:lol: I bought 2 just like it, still in the “boxes”, off eBay about 3 months ago. Paid $58 for the pair. Gave one to each of my grandsons for Christmas.

Didn’t realize they were so valuable! ::dang::

I have two mint S-W pen knives, a 708 and a 718, in their original tubes. I'll sell them to a lucky buyer for $500 for the pair. I'll even throw in an official Boy Scout version of that knife gratis.

First come first served! :lol:

You know, that one started out at about $785 or something. I guess the seller thought that was a little too much.

You have to laugh at these people that list knives at prices like that.

And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.

Lol - I saw that ad but he must have changed it. I clicked on it because of the silly price and also because he had it advertised as a Schrade 408. I guess he fixed the description - but not the price.

Incidentally, I have a factory sealed three pack of 718s that I'm looking to trade for a Harley or maybe a fishing boat. Any takers?

He eventually changed the price down to $375, and the ebay listing is closed with a "Item no longer available" reason. Must have found a sucker on another medium.
