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!

Hi Guys,

I have just purchased what I feel maybe a pretty rare LB8, apparently 100 were stamped like this in 94' so kinda happy with this one. There is no serial number on the Bolster, so I was wondering when they stopped this ? any help would be great.

The LB8 is in my top 3 Knives to be honest I love them.



See what you think from the pictures

looking to pick up a Schrade 125OT USA if anyone is looking to sell. email me at jtheo5@yahoo.com

Nope Steve, It's a 100th anniversary Stockman on an 8OT frame. I think the wood handle is Maple but don't quote me on that. It's one you don't see very often. Thanks for the compliment Steve!

That is a good looking stockman, John. :)

Are my six eyes (with bifocals) deceiving me, or is it a 858OTY?

Picked this up the other day

Maybe you could send it back to Schrade and get another that doesn't have quite as strong backspring? Just trying to help. I have no experience with the china schrades or their return policy. I wish you the best!

John, I would not bet anything I didn't want to lose on that,

So far my offshore Schrade's have held up just as well and my old USA made Schrade's

They have not gotten any looser, regardless of where they were made.

Comment by John Kellogg on January 30, 2020 at 14:14


Considering that it is a new Schrade vs an American made Schrade I would think that after a little use it will loosen up considerably.

Question on the new made BTI Old Timer 858OTB:stockman

Is a pull of between 7 and 8 on all the blades "normal"? 

The stiff pull is the only thing keeping the one I bought at the end of December, out of my pocket.

I prefer a pull between 4 and 5; a 6 at the most. I do not like fighting with my knife to open it. Especially not on the winter when I'm cold.
