The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I like to hunt for old Pal Cutlery knives. There are many available but often the condition is not good.
I'm not totally sure but, I think Schrade is who made Frontier knives way back in the old days! I don't know that much about them or the company but they look like a Schrade product! I have bought just about every style that Frontier put out, and there is not one of them that I don't love! I just love large knives, and especially the five and one-quarter inch one or two blade folding Hunters! I also bought a lot of Schrade knives, luckily, before they closed their doors! Before that I had never heard of them! About the only knives I had ever heard of was Case! Now when I go to the flea markets, and there is a table full of Case knives, I'm just looking around to see if the person has anything other than Case! I think I bought the last Case knife, when I bought the last two blade folding hunter with a jigged wooden handle! Luckily, I got one of the last Cold Steel carbon blade, two blade 5-1/4 inch folding hunters just before they quit making them! When it comes to production knives, I have to say Frontier, Walden's, Schrade, and Schrade/Walden's rank in the top, in my opinion! We all know about opinions! Although, I don't think I have ever seen any knife, that I can say that I didn't like to one degree or the other! Now when it comes to custom knives, that is a totally different thing! I only buy JK Handmade Knives now days! Those are my favorite knives! JK has never made a knife that I didn't want to take home with me! I love everyone he makes! It's real hard to buy production knives, after you have bought a JK, and had time to play with it out in the woods for awhile! Got to go, later guys! Tom
