Let's see that ephemera!

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.

1930's/1940's dealer poster. Imperial used that same image for close to 3 decades but the price makes me think it's an older one.

Jason, here is a page of some JACK-MASTER displays from a 1953 catalog. Only one display has the price on it, upper left corner and it shows it as 50 cents. Unless it was just that particular style of knife that was 50 cents.

Some from Imperial 1936 catalog.

I didn't notice it before, but in your '36 catalog on page 60 is the same poster actually printed with the 25 cent price. Thanks ::tu::


As long as I'm here I'll add this fancy envelope - coincidentally also from 1936.

I guess you could consider this ephemera. Here you go.............

I bought the postcard (last 2 pictures) last night. I bought the 5 item lot this morning. Here's the description (seller's) of the lot.

"The listing you are viewing is for Four (4) Vehicle Lot of Vintage NASCAR Die-cast Cars with Racing Truck including: 1/96 Skoal Racing Car Transporter (with Display case and Original box), 1/25 #7 Harry Gant Chevy Lumina, 1/43 #33 Hary Gant Skoal Chevy Lumina, Harry Gant #33 Pen Knife (New On Card) and 1/23 Hary Gant Skoal Chevy Lumina."

Besides the Case pocket knife, which is NOT why I bought the lot, the connection between this lot and pocket knives is that SCHRADE is one of the #33's sponsors. I don't know how long the sponsorship lasted. You can see the OLD TIMER w/knife "decal" on both sides of one of the cars (sorry about the pictures, not mine). You can see it much clearer in the postcard pictures. The postcard, from the 1992 Winston Cup Series, shows Harry Gant posing with his car at the Talladega Track in Alabama. The car in the postcard is different from the scale car. Luckily, I'm a NASCAR fan so this was a win-win deal for me.

That's only the 2nd of these I've seen. I posted mine earlier in this same thread: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=64301&p=769340&hilit=gant#p769340 It shows what's on the back. It's not a post-card. It's a two-sided semi-gloss promo pic.

The Gant/Schrade connection started in the late '80s and continued through to "The Bandit's Last Ride" in 1994.

Mine goes on display when these knives come out to play.

Thank you for the information. ::tu:: Great looking items! ::tu:: Now I've got to find the SCHRADE #33 knife. The seller called the picture a postcard, which would've been fine, but a promo picture is even better. ::tu::

This came a few days ago. What is the NASCAR connection to cutlery? Specifically, what is the NASCAR connection to Schrade? Well, SCHRADE (OLD TIMER) was one of the sponsors of the NASCAR #33, SKOAL BANDIT race car (see the rear, side window frame) and the driver, Harry Gant. Click on a picture to ENLARGE.

Although not dedicated solely to Schrade products,
SCHRADE- WALDEN has two pages of knives advertised.

Now you got the blanks and the stamp to go with them. I'm impressed! Great "End-of-Days" collectible!
