Knife Notes – Chris Hyde

Short History of Schrade Knives and Collectors Suggestion

The Schrade knife co. started in 1904 as Schrade Cut. co.

It went out of business about 5 years ago.

Current “Schrade” knives are made in China.

Older USA Schrade knives are increasing in value.

With this in mind a lot of people are putting them on ebay and the market is saturated.  If you are in a position to hang onto your old Shrade knives for a few years I would suggest that you do so as they will only increase in value as the supply starts to dry up.
