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.

Very affordable compared to other brands of OFT Folders without compromising quality. Very smooth operation and the blade does not wiggle like some other OFT knives. I have long wanted Microtech OFT but after handling my Schrade Viper OFT I don't see any reason to go with those brands. For a quarter of the price this knife fulfills my needs.
Quality product for the price. Significantly better than other manufacturer OTF within the same price point. Another quality Schrade product.
I don't like this knife...I guess I am spoiled by another OTF that I have. One: You cannot hold this knife in a normal holding position and open with one hand, the release is clear at the back of the knife and you cannot get your thumb back there, in your natural position...your thumb is sitting at the front of the knife. Two: The unlocking part is not my favorite either, it is also not operational with one hand nor does it retract on its own or with one hand. It just is not a good functional knife. Not impressed.
