The Schrade Cutlery Company was founded in 1904 in Walden, New York. The quality of the cutlery produced was unique to the industry at that time. Imperial Knife Company, established in Providence, Rhode Island in 1916, grew to manufacture a full range of value-priced folding pocket knives.
In 2003, the strength of Schrade's design concepts and engineering continues to move forward with exciting, cutting edge product introductions and a respect for tradition. Representing the newest of the new is Q3 Technology for Quick, Quiet and Quality offering a series of multi-functional folders designed for maximum performance. And in recognition of its heritage, Schrade's Custom Collaboration series celebrates the uniqueness of handcrafted design in their partnerships with the nations finest custom knife makers. Blending technology and tradition, the company continues its leadership position in the global cutlery and tool marketplace.
Key to Schrade's strength as a knife maker is the workforce of talented and committed craftsmen, including third and fourth generation employees. Learning the trade from parents and grandparents, they pass along the valuable knowledge, skills and pride necessary for the consistent production of quality knives and tools. That dedication and spirit lives at the 93 acre site in Ellenville, blending the decades of experienced hand craftsmanship with some of the most modern technology available. Schrade continues to grow in leaps and bounds due to our well earned reputation for quality and value, responsiveness to an ever changing market place, innovative new products, diversification into new markets, and customer service second-to-none in the industry.

I prefer this, the larger size, although I ordered both. This one cuts with a little more authority yet is still precise. And you'd be surprised how large even small fruit can be when you cut all the way through it. I prefer this one even though it is just a little long to carry in a pocket. I'm leaving my kitchen knives in the drawer most of the time now. This one even slices bread better than my expensive German bread knife.
Extremely sharp out of the box. Enjoy the long blade to slice into large mangoes.
I have found both knives to be of the same quality as my USDA knives, but much less expensive.
I found your website to be a fast convenient way of shopping for the items I wanted. It was done with no hassle and moderate pricing. I highly recommend them for a pleasant experience.
I wanted a sampler knife since I was a kid working in grocery store at age 14. The produce vender had one. I have a back yard garden and I use my knife on a daily basis. It's a great tool.
It is a good pig sticker and comes in handy with the work that I do. As a knife this is my #1 tool to use.
Little big but does the job well I work in a produce department and it comes in handy for triming and cutting produce lite weight and it'snot that bulky good knife
I work in the produce industry and use this knife a lot. It is very good.
I was expecting the blade to be American made and not Chinese.
