    Schrades in the truest sense, out of the original factory in Walden, NY.

    How about a bump for this thread with my latest schrade (that's not still in the mail system).

    I think the "99" is the model number.

    Today’s new addition. I love the walk and talk on all the N.Y. Schrades I’ve gotten. Usually a 7 on the main and 5 on the secondaries. Thunderous snaps. This one is a little stiffer tho at 7.5 or 8 7AC300EB-6E76-44FA-8852-2E330645705C.jpeg

    You never know what you will find at an antique mall, well I just so happened upon these three. A Schrade 34OT ,and 108OT, and a Wenger 97' Soldier. All of them are in great condition with some light scratches and pepper spots. They have great snap and walk-n-talk. I love finding things like this completely unexpected. Into the pocket they go, but I m having a hard time with 34OT because I think it is mint unused still in its box and plastic bag.

    The 34ot looks unused. Nice older one too. If it were up to me I'd keep it pristine and pick up a pre used example, if you really want to carry one. They are easy to find already used with full blades for cheap.

    Google says you're right.
    So I guess there's no telling how old it is.

    Well so far I haven't touched it (34OT) because of the condition that it came in. I have an 8OT and the 108OT that I have been using, so I will keep my eyes peeled for another 34OT. You never know when you will come across one.

    Small collection of the full size stockman knives. The 8ot was my uncles and man he could sharpen this thing is hair whittling sharp but the mains spring and tang have had it no tension. Plenty more I plan on adding :D. A Kon Kav, Walden stamped of each, hopefully one of the rarer bone 881s, and a few others I might get. F455B12A-9791-4217-BD84-3E2F8D91D0C2.jpeg
    Speaking of the 34ot how about this Cadillac version of it. Silver shield and silver fluted bolsters with smooth antique bone covers. Mighty sexy package

    I believe this knife is a rebranded schrade 708, anyone here want to confirm or disprove this ?
