    [​IMG]Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. Thanks for having me.
    I just bought a knife I would like you all to take a look at. I have a small Schrade collection. I bought this knife on ebay, I know buyer beware on what you might end up with coming from there. It was suppose to be a NOS 834 uh trailmaster. and it looks like one except for one problem It is stamped 833 uh. Is this a fake or rebuilt? and someone didnt put the right stamp on it? I know a 833 uh is a Praire Jack and only has 2 blades. Thanks for any thoughts anyone might have. I will post a Pic If I can figure out how.

    Does anyone know anything about the schrade USA knife #169 with a bone handle? When was it made and how much do you think it's worth? I can't seem to find any information on it.

    Mmarquis --

    I've also got one of these - REALLY BEAT UP :eek:
    Smaller, fixed blade - no idea of the original shape of the blade.
    The shape it's in now is more like a Clam Knife, if you're familiar with that sort of cutlery.

    I don't think this is from the tools group of Schrade Walden (what we normally discuss here). I believe it to be from the home cutlery group.

    Just my opinion ...

    Can you post a picture?

    Hi guys! New to the collecting of schrade lives. I recently bought a schrade NY USA H-15. It seems to be quite old and was wondering if someone cold help me determine age of this knife.

    If the stamp is SCHRADE NY USA, it was made in either 1974 or 1975. They dropped WALDEN from the stamp in 1974, and 1975 was the last year of production.

    H-15 9 3/4" length "Utility Hunter"; leather ring handle, aluminum guard; aluminum disc pommel.

    Hope that there is someone out there that can help.
    Just so that you know I started collecting knives because the missers lost interest in XES

    Hi Guys,
    I guess I have the sharpfinger obsession disease as I spend way too much time looking for my first one to buy...
    I am looking at apparantly a US made sharpfinger with imported pakkawood handles.

    IF it has pakkawood handles is it likely to have a US made blade??

    Also! ..I am looking at another one that has the stamp Shrade+ USA 152UH. Is this US made?

    If you want a knife that is finished offshore, you have them identified. To my knowledge, original blades from the Schrade factory auction using most of the common Schrade tang markings have been finished and assembled offshore and then reimported for sale here. If it says "Schrade+ USA 152UH", then it is one of the unfinished blades sold during the auction, if it also has pakkawood handles with small rivets. For a few dollars more, you can get the real deal, an original Old Timer 152OT or Uncle Henry 152UH factory finished and assembled in the Schrade factory. There are still plenty available. I haven't bought them all. Yet. :)

    Hi Codger,

    Thanks for your reply and I suspected as much. I may win an auction for one of these and if it ends up with an import handle I may just rehandle it with something special and use it as my main hunting knife. At least I know the blade is the goods..

    As for getting an original I will keep looking.

    Thanks again for your help and cheers from down under..

    I was gifted my great grandfather's Schrade Walden 225H by my aunt. My questions are is it real? What year is it? And is the black patina harmful? It has the usual two blades of every other 225H I've seen. It has SCHRADE-WALDEN N.Y U.S.A 225H on main blade. It has what appear to be real bone scales. My main concern is that it has no lanyard hole on bottom cap. It looks just like a 225H from 1947 - mid/late 1960s. (Excluding the lack of lanyard hole, of course.)
