I picked up a couple from SMKW's awhile ago. They will be users but right now they are still sitting in a box waiting on sheaths (SMKW didn't supply any). I'm not crazy about blue handles but they sure are comfortable.

I have most of that Old Timer set. Called "Safe-T-Grip", the Thermoplastic rubber (TPR) handles are comfortable and grippy, though large. There were ten knives in the series counting the three folders and three fillet knives.

140OT Trail Boss
141OT Outfitter
142OT Guidemaster
143OT Blade Runner Guthook
146OT Maximum Flex Fillet
147OT Pro Fisherman Fillet
246OT Minimum Flex Fillet
43OT Pocket Beast
47OT Beast
49OT Rhino Guthook

The fixed blade sheaths were some of the best Schrade had come up with in synthetic material. with a rigid plastic liner inside the black nylon sheath. This series of knives seems to be a good buy right now, priced generally far, far below their last MSRP. The 141OT listed for $35.95.

Interesting! I just dug up a 1410T Outfitter that I bought in early-mid 90's (I think it was $20+ at the time). I think the knife is probably worth about what I paid for it. The grip is very comfortable, no chance of slippage. It's actually a nice LOOKING knife, too (though I could do without the green handle.) The only problem I have with it (and it's a biggun) is that it isn't full tang. But for $20, I guess I can't complain.

Rusty and everyone else thanks for sharing I never realized there were 3 different fillet knives in that set I always thought there were just the 2 "min flex" knives never knew there was a maxflex. learn something new everyday. great sets by the way guys I always loved the rubber handle set.- Joel

Rusty and Irv: What is your assessment of the quality of these knives, in particular the 1410T Outfitter?

Don't know how this range of knives came about, but I think they may of been designed around the requirements of a various range of jobs and recreational purposes where the Safe-T-Grip handle would come into it's own, a lot of fishing knives and hunting knives generally would have handles that would become slippery when wet, not so much with the rubber handle design. I've not used all the knives in the range, the ones I have perform very well, although I do like the thumb rest on the 141OT great for keeping pressure on the knife when cutting down.

I've used several or them for their intended purposes. I like them. In fact, a pile of seven live on the kitchen counter shelf where they serve most for cutting meat and veggies. I've used them for butchering deer and large catfish too. They work quite well, but still aren't my favorites. A Sharpfinger skinned and butchered a buck last night.

Don't forget that some of them also came in four other "flavors" as well. Hunter orange, black, maroon and blue.

These were and still are a more affordable buy than the delrin handled Old Timer's. How does the blade steel compare to the stainless they used for the premium lines? I may have asked this before, not sure.:confused:

I've been using a 147 and 246 for a while and they seem to hold an edge pretty well but will get deep rust stains if put away wet, I don't recall that ever happening with my older 167UH or GF models.

This probablly isint the right place to be asking this but I have been looking for a what I believe is the 146ot the " MAX-Flex" and cant seem to find one anywhere. Any help guys other than ebay cause Ive been looking there too. Any body got one too many of them and need some extra christmas cash?? I love all of these knives and I use the fillet knives all the time. I think you cant beat them for the price but there going up.- Joel

Bump!
I like this series, the 1410t outfitter was the first knife I bought myself. Didn’t realise there were folders also.
Anyone knows how much tang the fixed blades have? And what is the steel grade?
