The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
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. They're all great in my book.
I am proceeding slowly with adding to my collection, in the beginning I was going like gang busters. But, the pickings are getting slim at least for good/great condition knives.
Although I am not buying much now, I never tire of seeing them or looking for them. So if you have some or have come into some, let me see them.
Eventually I will try to get all I currently have into 1(or 3) photos for this discussion. For now these will have to do.
I posted a picture of a Schrade Cut. Co. 2203 3/4 a while back. It had Celluloid handles and the blades, while a little rough, were pretty full. I sent it to Herman Williams. He re-profiled the main blade, buffed the dings out of the bolsters, polished the blades, and re-handled it. He used bone from the Schrade Factory and used the jigging machine that was built in the Schrade machine shop. While the knife is no longer original, it's pretty darn close.
Great looking Barlow Derek, Those Heritage knives are awesome!
Very nice knife Derek!
That heritage series is sure a nice one!
I love the old match striker pull on this knife! Blades look to be pretty full! It's gonna be a great EDC for your friend!
