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.

Very nice Paul. I've always loved the older Schrades handles. Like that Badge shield also. ::tu::

The next three use basically the same frame of the small serpentine jack. A Schrade 219, a Schrade 18OT single blade liner lock Mighty Mite, and a Schrade 707UH Gambler with the Green Delrin handles, GREENWING shield and Ducks Unlimited blade etch. All have great walk and talk, tight blades with no wobble. These are all 2-3/4 inch closed. The 707UH Ducks unlimited Gambler is a great pattern to find with the scissors. All are great additions to my Schrade Family.
Those are some nice additions Smitty!

I REALLY like that Greenwing!

This is my 125OT. We are in the process of moving and downsizing. I am digging out my knives as I go through boxes. I have knives stuck everywhere. Some I have used in several years. I bought a Buck 110 about 1983. After a few years I noticed everybody was carrying a Buck on their belt.... wanting to be different I bought this 125OT. Not too long after that I took a supervisors job came off my tools and didn’t need a belt knife much anymore. I started carrying a 34OT and sometimes a Buck 505. I have used this knife to gut several deer and skinned a few too. I love the knife !! Just don’t use it a lot.

Those are dependable knives. I've always said, you never know how much stuff you have until you move. ::facepalm::
