    Another of my Golden oldies.
    Marked Schrade Walden NY. USA on one side and 804 on the other.
    Dates from the early 1950`s and belonged to my wife's grandpa.
    Sometimes referred to as a carpenter's knife, which fits as he was Chief Carpenters Mate.

    It's funny how we often don't appreciate things until they are gone. I've had a few Old Timer and Schrade knives over the years. I always viewed them as decent knock around knives, but never fully appreciated them. I always thought I could do better. But now that the only versions are Chinese made I wish I'd bought, and kept, a few of them. That's a nice knife and the family history makes it special. I recently gave my son the 2 Case pocket knives that belonged to my grandfather.

    I'm a fan of the old Schrade knives and have a special fondness for the Sharpfingers.

    Schrade had always been around and it seems that they would always be around.

    It was not to be. :( Live too long and everything you loved and was familiar goes away.

    Real Schrade went out of business in 2004. Chinese Schrade is junk.
    I bought about a dozen real Schades on close out and put them up. I will post on them in the future.
