It's funny what brands are "hot" at any given time... when I was younger, and getting my first knife/knives, the hardware store where my dad bought them for me carried mostly Case, and Queen... maybe some Imperials. I don't remember seeing many Schrade Walden knives... I think they were there, but just not as common.^^ I still have a soft spot (no knives, but a soft spot) for the old Schrade / Old Timer / Uncle Henry knives. They were actually the first pocket knives I remember seeing in my local hardware stores. Case Knives were more premium and weren't carried as many places around my town as Schrade and Old Timer were.
Of course, that was back in the early/mid 60's....
