Small enough to carry in pocket, big enough to cut most things that need cutting. Well made. Holds sharp edge, peerless fingernail cleaner. Best value for the cost. Recently purchased and engraved eight "Old Timers 180" for every male member of my family.

I am very pleased with this little single blade pocket knife. I have another Old Timer with 4 blades, and I like it, but it is a bit heavy for some pants pockets. This is smaller, lighter, and "fills the bill" just as I had anticipated.

By Ralph H. from Howard, OH
October 12, 2012

This is the first Shrade product I have purchased. Up until now I have been partial to Case. I am impressed with the quality, and the Carbon blade (hard to find) easier to sharpen. I carry it almost every where I go, in my pants pocket. I have carried a pocket knife since I was 10 yrs. old, at 62 I will keep carrying it, for practical use. If the need arises, I will purchase from Knife Depot again, and recommend it to my friends

Quality product but I was taken back to see the knife was made in China. Why must we put our own people out of work..why? .It's not right for what the almighty dollar. I may have had different thoughts about purchasing the knife if I knew as I carried this knife all my life as did my father.Just disappointed is all..Thank you.

This is a great pocket knife. I have carried this model of knife for over twenty years. The knife that I bought was smaller than what I wanted (my mistake) The knife I have carried has a 3 inch blade, a great hunting and fishing and work knife.

This is a great little pocket knife. It is the perfect size for carrying in dress slacks, and big enough to do all the little chores around the house or office. The lock blade is a plus. I've carried this model for years and just had to replace my last one because I lost it. This time I bought two to have a spare.

My knife is a single blade locking Old Timer and it is wonderful! The blade is sharp and the knife as a whole is good to the touch and operates smoothly. I cannot conceive of a better pocket knife for I have looked and no knife is better.

The Schrade old timer made in the U.S.A. are the best knifes out there. I bought one for my Dad for his birthday and he was so surprised to see that there are still a few U.S.A. knifes available.

By Gresham H. from Marietta, GA
October 2, 2006

I absolutely love having it to carry again as I had lost my old one after about 25 years. I could always do most every thing that I would really need the knife for in the course of a business day. It is just handy and the right size. The little blade guard is also a plus. Just a great knife!

By Jim P. from Endicott, NY

I am glad that I ordered it! I LOVE IT!

By Joe W. from Baltimore Md.
May 14, 2017

The knife is a nice size, attractive and well made and finished. A definite great deal for the money. My only gripe is that the liner lock is not as strong as it should be, allowing some closing type movement. Thanks for the good deal and the opportunity to provide a review statement.

By Louis B. from Spokane, Washington
September 23, 2016

not a big fan of small folders but this one has a locking blade, Iike that! very sturdy and nice looking. has changed my opinions on small folders, as a matter of fact I've bought a few more since then. make great gifts, the smiles are great rewards. go for it!

By Bill M. from Missouri
January 19, 2015

Nice knife. Blade was sharp. I liked the locking mechanism. Thought it would be bigger, however. I have a Buck, single blade, similar design but longer and a bit beefier.

By Charles G. from LA

It is a real good knife all though it is really small.

By Lin F. from Fresno, CA
August 29, 2014

Very well made, nice & small, easy to carry in my purse, seems sharp but doesn't work as well on hang-nails as I had hoped - due to the curved tip, I guess. Light weight; a bit stiff to open/close but that will probably improve with use.

By Wally M. from Green Valley, AZ
December 23, 2013

This an excellent small knife. It is easy to carry, even in the smallest of pockets, and stays sharp for a multitude of uses.

The knife, for my wife, replaces another she lost. I bought two this time. She loves it, especially the blade lock and the size. I would rather have a high carbon steel blade, but they're hard to find now.

By Mike B. from Wake Forest, NC

Like it alot. Thanks.

By David P. from Tucson. AZ
January 20, 2012

The knife is for my wife who loves the old timers with the lock back blades and keeps losing them. I would have preferred a knife with a good high carbon steel blade so I could sharpen it to my specs. But, she loves it.

By Mayhem R. from Ny. NY

Very nice pocket knife. Sharp, stylish, has brass liner lock.

By Tracey D. from Tuscaloosa, AL
June 16, 2010

Great little pocket knife. I ordered 5. Delivery time excellent. Because I was to give them as gifts I wanted them in a small box rather than the difficult to open plastic packaging they came in. I called the company and they kindly sent me 5 small boxes at no charge so that I could easily wrap them as gifts. Of the 5 knives, one of the blade locks did not function. It is a great small knife for everyday use.

By Kenneth H. from Jacksonville, FL

I think it is a good little pocket knife for the money!

By Alex A. from Oklahoma
January 8, 2009

This is a small, inexpensive, no-frills, single-blade pocket knife of a venerable brand. It is tried and proven over many years. I use mine a lot, occasionally lose it or, eventually, wear it it out, so I try to keep at least one spare on hand.

By Ed M. from St Augustine, FL
October 14, 2008

This is a great little pocket knife! It fits in my pocket really well! I had carried my first for ten years till it wore out. I am looking for ten more from this one.

February 11, 2008

This is about the 10th Old Timer knife that I have purchased. I do not like the new "safety feature", locking knife in the open position.

By Richard B. from Louisville, KY
September 29, 2017

I've carried and loved the Schrade 180T Old Timer Mighty Mite for over 50 Years. I've lost only two over the years until I lost my latest one. I immediately ordered a new one. How disappointed I was to see it is now made in communist China! The overall quality is typical chinese with little comparison to the quality of the original Schrade Old Timer. The chinese knife is much thicker and heavier. the rivets stick up and not flush with the handle, and the handle material is different and not fine finished like the USA made original. It will serve its purpose as a pocket knife but It's so sad to see so many quality USA made products moved off shore to communist China.

By David K. from Millbrook.NY

OK knife, but I found it to be a little to small to use.

By Neil G. from Papillion, NE
November 19, 2013

I previously owned this same knife and had had it for many years until I lost it. After hunting for weeks I finally gave up and ordered a new one. It is a wonderful knife for packing and using every day. However, the blade locking mechanism which was very secure on the old knife is almost non-functional on the new one. With only the slightest of pressure it give way and allows the knife to close when not intended.

By Joan H. from Eugene, OR
March 15, 2013

Since I purchased this knife for my husband to replace one he had carried for years and lost to Airport Security, I can only say that he has accepted it as OK. Of course it is not the same as a "favorite" but he does like it and in time I am sure nostalgia will lesson and it will be his "favorite"

By Dick H. from Afghanistan

It's a knife, no big deal.

By Scott E. from Harrisburg, PA

The blade was larger (wider) than anticipated. It has been handy around the house for cutting open bailed and large bagged items!
