I finally got that 227 UH I was looking for

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.

I wondered about the innards of those displays. I have four of the SW displays which are basically like your image, but no innards. They could be available but a nuisance to try to ship.

VERY cool display James....

(Is there an exact year date for it?)

Well, I guess even if you do have an extra early Old Timer display, you wouldn't want to ship it to me.... (????)

Mike, looks like the 227 had a very long run. Even when the LB7 and the other lock backs were in circulation. You can see it in the 1011-uh. This is the only other UH only display I know of. Came out in the 80’s. This evolved once more. Retailers did not have to take knives out of the tray, instead there was room for storage in the display. Also they were able to be locked.

Picked that little beauty up along with a lot of other Schrades. Part of an Uncle's gathering.

That’s awesome Tom, they made that with a red panel as well. Which one do you have?

Just to kind of wrap this up, Schrade started to make much larger retailers eventually let stores choose between different panels available. Some counter top options were created which led to the clam shell packaging and display options. Eventually two rd the end Schrade had a little of everything in its arsenal.

Sorry Tom, missed your post some how. The 59uh you have looks about as nice as when it left the factory. It should Im thinking it never went to a store. So happy you got that piece of history there. That’s what this is about really. These are an important part of the story. Hoping this info helps with that. If anyone has questions about a specific display I may have some info. Let me know. Thanks for checking it out. And thanks Mike for starting the thread. Hope I did not hijack it to much. The 227 is a great knife. My favorite it’s the 127. If you have a sharp 127 on you in the great outdoors there is not a heck of a lot of cutting jobs you will have to worry about. Happy safe Easter to all.
P.S we lost Herman Williams last week. His personal collection made up much of what was on the Wall collection in the factory. Besides that and many other contributions he was one of the kindest souls you would ever meet. Rest in peace Herman

I also have a SW70UH display as well as a lot of others. Might be the time to start a new thread just for Schrade displays.

Tom I agree 100%. There is so much info on this subject. Including a lot on the displays during the cut co era. Take a pic of your SW70. If it has a 172 in it im going to cry. Thanks Bud.
