Old Timer Knives manufactured by the Imperial Schrade Corporation closed their doors July 30, 2004, after 100 years of business. There will be no more original Schrade Old Timer knives produced. However popular name brands and designs are in demand by the public, and as Mark Twain once said, "Reports of my Demise are Greatly Exaggerated".
Thanks to Taylor Brands LLC, which purchased the intellectual property rights to all of the Old Timer, Schrade, and Uncle Henry Knives, these great classics live again. Taylor has recreated the original patterns, and made these Classics available to the public once more. The only sad note is that they are now imported from China to keep the prices low.
Old Timer Knives are genuine classics. The Old Timer knife line, made by the new Schrade, is a selection of pocket knives, lock blades, fixed blade hunters, etc. that are built for use, with saw-cut Delrin handles, brass liners, nickel silver bolsters, and stainless steel blades.
For almost 100 years, since 1904, the Schrade and Old Timer name products have been manufactured with superior materials and expert craftsmanship. Made Schrade Tough, Schrade's Uncle Henry and Old Timer knife products have been carried by generations of Americans, and prized for their reliability, durability and value.
Deeply rooted in the Old Timer tradition, the Schrade Knife family tree includes: Old Timer Knives and Uncle Henry Knives.
