The Schrade Old Timer name has been around for over 100 years. Over the years this brand has earned the reputation for toughness and reliability. About 2 years ago the original Schrade went bakrupt and after it's collapse all assets were sold off to pay creditors. These assets were sold off to a number of companies. Taylor Cutlery in U.S.A. purchased the rights to the name and models- they did not buy the company or stock and cannot do warranty on the old models.
The new knives are made with better updated U.S. machinery and upgraded components. The steel is 440C high Carbon Stainless steel with a rockwell hardness of 59-60. Taylor Cutlery has gone to great pains to maintain the quality and improve on it. They have thier own production control and the finalised product is better than ever. Schrade, Old Timer, Uncle Henry, X Timer, Schrade Badger, Scrade Lightweight are all stocked by Pacific Rim Distributors for your convenience. We carry the warranty on knives we sell.
