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.

You don't get a better skinning knife with a guthook for this price! I love Schrade knives, I needed a guthook and this one hits the mark! I have used it for two seasons now and it helps make quick work of the deer.

It is awesome! One of the best skinning knives I've ever owned! It'll open a deer like a zipper. I've skinned 7 deer and several raccoons this winter and used this knife to dress all of them. It's still super sharp.

This is a very good knife! The only thing I see wrong is in the sheath being plastic instead of leather!

I really like the knife! It holds an edge really well and the size is perfect. The gut hook is a must on any hunting knife and this one works great.

I think this is the best skinning knife out there. I have been using one for years, and have skinned just about all there is. It works the best!

I have one and it has performed perfectly. This knife gets the job done quick and really holds an edge. I just want a clear answer on the type of stainless you guys are using because I have very minor but obvious corrosion. I work in a metallurgical lab so I will know what it is if you tell me. I could EDS the piece but I just want to know what coating or oil I can use to make it not oxidize by just sitting after I buff it.

My hand slid several times because of blood and slippery handle. Blade did a great job and knife did exactly what it designed to do but you may want design for no slip.

By Conrad R. from Phoenix, AZ

Great knife, not too large and not too small, and holds a sharp blade for a good while as well. Nice and compact.

By Dave D. from Texas

This is a great knife for dressing deer. Most people use a knife that is two big. This one is perfect and the gut hook is great. This one was a gift to my son.

By Michael G. from Shreveport, LA

The new Skinner carries the Schrade name but is in fact made in CHINA. The holster is not leather anymore but made of a vinyl like substance. Fine for a skinning knife but definitely not collectible.
