Schrade with no model number on tang.

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.

My opinion when I see these is that they were probably sold for "Your Name Here" type items; that promotional companies would buy, and then offer to print/engrave things on them, usually company logos/advertising. I had an SC505 that had mini-catalogs for two years (it's in an SC-506 Barlow box, and the original owner must have had a mix-up over the years) inside it, and neither lists anything like a 94OT in them. But I know one exists.

I did some searching, and it brought me to an old, ended store listing here. One with a Gator on it was listed as being a 584SC.

I only have one trapper scrimshaw. It has the tang stamp with the numbers 296Y.
I have not seen many trapper scrimshaws
Here one on ebay with your tang stamp

Thanks for the info gentlemen. I had thought that it might have been made as part of the scrimshaw series but never got scrimshawed. ::shrug::

Actually has "LTD" in the stamp , so that was a limited run .
I've got two large stockman on the same frame as the 8ot . Both have plain white Delrin with no shield . One is stamped 505SC which is supposed to be scrimshawed and isn't and the other is stamped 881 which was an open stock Schrade , but those were usually a brown jigged Delrin with a national shield while they also made them in yellow Delrin with the national shield some of them stamped 881Y and others just plain 881 . In either case , I've got a scrimshaw with no scrimshaw and an 881 without the shield and in white Delrin . (881W) ? No shield . Who knows what's was going on there ?

So I'm guessing that, as far as dating, these knives with the ambiguous tang stamps were made in the last few years before their doors closed?
