    I have a question about a Schrade 8ot that I sent into Schrade warranty department in July 2004. I received a card from the warranty department saying that my knife was received and would be placed in line to be repaired about August 2004. I soon heard that Schrade went out of business. What happened to my knife, and is there any possibility to get it back even if it is not repaired. Does anyone know what happened to the warranty service customer property?

    If you did not receive your knife back, repaired or not, with a kind note from an engineer who paid shipping out of his own pocket, your knife likely wound up on eBay.

    Sadly, Colonial Knife Company offered to do repair work for a while after the closure, but when we refered one fellow who had a simple camp knfe to them, he got an estimate of the repair of more than a hundred dollars, if I remember correctly.

    There are still plenty of near mint and mint 8OTs out there, and sometimes for less than their 2004 MSRP, so replacement should not be a large problem.

    I sent a knife to them in 1994 for replacement of a lost shield and received it back in short order repaired at no charge with a kind note and a new sheath. Luckily I did not wait ten years.

    Everything in the factory when they went into receivership was counted as assets. Including the knives returned for warranty and repairs, if I understand correctly.

    Welcome to the forum, and sorry I couldn't give you better news.

    Thanks Codger 64, I knew in my heart of hearts it was gone, but had always hoped that I might get it back. I had the knife over 20 years. I will try to replace it on the secondary market.

    I know of a store in my local area that still had probably 18-24 8OTs still in stock, brand new in the box with papers. I haven't been there in a couple months, but it is sort of out-of-the-way, so I expect they still have a bunch. I think the price was $32.95 if memory serves. That is about $5 less than the 2004 retail price. I would be happy to get one for you if you wish. Price would be just what it costs me.

    However, I think you may be able to do better on ebay.
    See what you can find and if you decide to take me up on the offer, you can email me at:

    I was wondering if or how you can tell the date of a LB-7? Back in 1981 when I was 16 years old I bought my first knife, with money I had worked for, and it was a LB-7. It has since left me and I would like to get one back of that same year. I have had many Scharade knives over the years. 5 years ago, the company I work for gave us LB-5's. I received 2 and put one away and still use the other. Not new here but have been away along time. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    send me an e mail - I have a LB7 from about that time period (4 pins & S/N Q5630). [email protected]

    With Schrade LB7's it's easy, the date is right on the blade:


    Naw, I'm just kidding. Debbie Chase, a Schrade employee who used to post under the handle UH Fan, made the following post on 12-21-2004:

    She followed up on that in the same topic on 12-22-2004:

    After she posted those remarks, others replied that they had knives that were exceptions to the rules posted by Debbie. Hope this helps you.

    The original topic is here:

    I don't believe I've seen this flier here before, I find the steel information at the bottom very informative.

    I just want to say hi. I bought an Uncle Henry cat paw when they first came out. I used it constantly for about ten years before losing it while hunting. I hven't had a pocket knife since that I liked as well. I just found a mint 197UH on Having that Schrade in my pocket will be like reuniting with an old friend.

    Unlike some people, it will never betray or let you down. You can depend on it to respond correctly without fear in any situation and if treated correctly will last your lifetime and that of anyone you might bequeath it to. May you use and enjoy your knife in life and health just as long as you so desire to do so. LT

    Another newbie here, seeking the value of a knife.
    It is an Uncle Henry, Pro Hunter 171UH new in the box.
    It was found in the home of my late uncle who was quite a pack rat.
    Any information will be appreciated, thanks

    Sorry if this is a bit late. I didn't notice the post up here.

    That's a great knife, very much in demand among collectors. The 'mint in the box' with the paperwork gets you top price. I would think $150. Best place to sell it would be ebay.

    Thanks for bringing us your knife!
