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.

That would be a great knife to carry. That black cell doesn't scare me.

This afternoon, this joined my pocket knife collection. It's a G. SCHRADE, single blade, cap lifter/bottle opener, all metal, 3" closed, advertising pocket knife. I bought this particular pocket knife because it is a "cousin" of the Allen Cutlery Company, the Eagle Knife Company and the other cutlery companies that manufactured pocket knives of a similar style/pattern. It needed a minor cleaning. I took some pictures and here it is.

That is a nice looking knife Skip. I can remember people opening gallon paint cans with those knives when I was a kid. Here is an automobile knife I picked up a while back. Still has a light etch.

VERY cool knife!
What was the utility blade meant to do?

Square hole.... then the very end looks too thin to be a can opener.

(Of course, I can see the can lifter as very necessary when working on older cars!!)

The 1926 catalog has it listed as No.8463 Automobile and Campers knife. Thanks for comments.

The square hole is a wrench for the early acetylene headlamps.

Luckydog, that knife is a beauty with tons of history.

Picked up this lightly used 294 this week, love the Schrade bone.
