What is Your Latest Old Schrade?

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.

A small Schrade Cut Co dogleg, just over 3". Typical great Schrade bone, full blades, good pulls and snaps. Don't recall seeing this pattern all that often, I guess it might be considered a peanut.
Sweet little pattern, these doglegs are definitely in the shape of a peanut. This 295K is one of my favorites. This one is a Schrade Walden NY

Good looking knife, love the color of the scale. Is that celluloid? Whatever it is looks cool to me.

Picked up a Wonda Edge 293 Schrade Walden trapper, The Wonda Edge etch has Patent Pending, Eric states this would be from late 1957 as patent approved in 1958. The bone dye is a little unusual, black with reddish orange highlights. Looks to be unused.

Pretty knife Hal, are those whittlers bone?
Great unusual collectible John.
Tough EDC Nev.

Schrade content:
Pretty rare fibestos handled Schrade 7309F. It's got some of my favorite blades on farmers jacks. The bottom knife has better blades ,but it's been rehandled. The handles were't very sturdy on these.

Nice! I have a Case with a serrated clip, as well as a Stanley/Camillus with a considerably more aggressive scalloped spey, but I've never seen a Schrade Trapper with serrations/scallops before.

Gorgeous bone John, wow I like that. Interesting serrated edge on the spay too. Great find.

Thank you all for the comments. ::tu:: ::tu::

Lyle, that rooster blade on the farmers jack is really cool, that has to be difficult to make.

Lyle is the farmers' jack King. I would love to see a group shot; it would take more than one table! 8) 8) 8)

Thanks Cal and John.
You see some German horticulture knives with that blade, but I'm remiss to find an American, except the one I had Ken Erickson make me.I think that in Peter Henderson ads they called it a Kunde blade. ( don't quote, that's on memory)

For John, I have a #147WE Wonda Edge which dates from 1959-'63. I've seen very few of any pattern, must not have been very popular.

Here is my new LB8

Not sure of the year as no Serial Number, not that I can really pin point those either to be Honest ::facepalm::

Bought this for an EDC but once again I have ended up with an as new perfect condition factory edge LB8 so this will also stay in the collection and not get used by me............... One day I'll get one that I feel is rough enough for my EDC.

Oh yes as you may see this one has a Veterans of forgein Wars Logo so perhaps somebody here may be able to help with dates ???

I'll keep the Search going ha !!!


Hope you like them..

Some great knives everyone. Rooster blade, huh? Thanks John, I always wondered what they called that blade.

I finally scored a bartender knife that doesn't look like it was rolling around in a junk drawer for 20 years. Big shout out and thank you to Eric for making it available. ::tu::
