    Closed their doors.:sad2:

    Some outfit called Taylor bought the line, and is now importing them from China.

    Any of y'all have any experience with the "new" Schrades?

    I dont have any of the new Schrades but I got one of the last Old Timers and Uncle Henry's before they sold out. It came with a certificate and all that good stuff, still in factory packaging.

    I've heard they use cheap stainless steel in their blades now. I've also checked with BPS and they don't sell any knives with the good carbon blades that the original Old Timers had. I am in need of a new knife and I am at a loss on what to get, myself.:angry:

    Yeah, whenever I am looking for an older knife, or one on sale, I look at Smoky Mountain Knife Works wholesale, you can order their catalog for free at www.eknifeworks.com. They have tons and tons, and if you don't even see it in their catalog, you can go to their website and search for it, most likely, they will have what you are looking for.

    The two great things about them,the quality,and everything involved with makeing a Schrade was American.The steel came from america,right down to the sheath was made here.Thats all I've ever owned in pocket/buck knives.I got one of the X timers when they came out .Its a beutiful stainless steel groved folding pocket knife.I use it all the time.I'll not by these imported knock-offs.The quality,just isn't there anymore.

    I have a real old one that I found in my great grandpa's room after he died. I wonder if they're worth anything? Don't matter anyway cause I ain't gonna sell it. I just seen a few newer ones at the local sporting goods store but it may be a year old so I doubt it's the latest model.
    Good to know though, Thanx!

    Made all sorts of great knives. I bought a Chef's knife on Ebay and since added a carving knife, paring knife, and meat cleaver. All mine are non stainless which I prefer. I hit them a few licks on a diamond sharpening steel and they stay like razors.
