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.

For the price paid, this is an excellent knife. Since this knife is a "dagger-type" blade (spear-point), The blade has a narrow scope of application. The 7Cr17MoV steel takes a good edge (as does Schrade's "Sharpfinger" skinning knife). This knife can be used for some hunting applications, but without the curved blade similar to that of the Sharpfinger and other knives made by Schrade, it limits the knife's uses. I like this knife and will be seeking a sheath that will conceal the knife either down my back (behind the neck) or a horizontal belt carry. Discretion, being the better part of valor, is the very essence of keeping this knife a "secret" until it is absolutely necessary to deploy it.
My knife arrived well built and sturdy. The sheath is of good quality and happens to match my gun belt and holster. It was purchased as a companion piece for my single action revolver. Perfect. Old school cool!
If you love old timers then this knife is a must for your collection! Comfortable wearing in your boot or on your body the grip feels good in your hand and it's just a overall well made knife.
Old timer quality. What more needs to be said. Fits great in my boot.
I plan on buying 6 more of these items, they are perfect.They are great, they are very finely made knives. Tough handle material full strong tang,one piece steel very well balanced.
Very pretty, clean lines and well made.
One of the best boot knifes I have love it and plan to get another one to have a match set.
blade is ok for what it is. Scales are a bit lacking in fit. but the knife is worth $20.00. Made in China. What can one expect from them?
No complaints really! Knife is very solid with sturdy spear point blade and comfortable handle. I think all boot knife sheaths should come with a metal clip for easy attachment and release from boots but I also understand this is an old timer series and has a very old school sheath. I was pleased with my purchase!
