Schrade Collectors

Many people collected Schrade knives over the years. Almost everyone had to have a Schrade. Much has changed, but they still make Schrade Knives and now they are coming out with new steels and new handle materials.

So old fan or new collector, Lets talk about Schrade!

I like USA made Schrades & Schrade-Walden knives...obviously. Old Timers, Uncle Henry's and the models that pre-dated those lines. Saw-cut Delrin, Stagalon, Butter-n-Molasses, etc. handles.…Continue

I found the knife on Ebay and the main blade had been tipped. I also was worried about displaying it with other knives because of the celluloid handles. I have since learned they may have not been that type of celluloid. I sent it to Herman Williams who re-profiled the blade'''he said that it was short by about 1/32", cleaned the knife,buffed the dings out of the bolsters and replaced the handles with bone he had from the Schrade Factory. He used the machine built in the Schrade machine shop to do the jigging. So while the knife is no longer original...it's not far off.

 Schrade went bankrupt in 2004, that was when Taylor acquired the rights to the Schrade name. Most of the Schrades since then are made in China and have limited collector value. GEC has made a few knives for Taylor and I would suppose other U.S. manufacturers as well. If it didn't have U.S.A on the tang it would be safe to assume it was of foreign production.

a friend showed me a knife  , guess it looks kind of like a muskrat, marked s c 4 

sm2011 Stewart A Taylor & sons I did not measure it , however ,with the sharp  point unfolded 

it could be a foot and 4 inches, mother of pearl like handles and marked holiday greetings snowflake logo on the grip says old timer . never seen anything quit like it was it a presentation piece ? it certainly is not a joke .

February Contest ** An Old Schrade USA !!

Compared to many knife collectors I'm relatively new to the game. I've been collecting Schrades for about 6 years. IKC has enlightened me to the fact that there are other knives than Schrade, good American made knives. What is very disappointing to me, is that I find better fit and finish in 30 year old Schrades than I am encountering in GEC and Queen. I recently paid nearly $100 for a newly manufactured knife that would have barely been qualified as a factory second by Schrades standards. My money was refunded, but this is the third knife I've returned due to quality issues out of eight purchases. Maybe I'm too old and too picky. When I was growing up, I was taught "if you have enough time to go back and fix something, you had enough time to do it right to start with". Perhaps this is a lesson that should be revisited.

My Schrade knives are all WWII vintage and immediately afterwards (through about 1948). Nothing newer.
