|Our Schrade Collection and Reference.
The Flyers posted here are a great source of reference. The files for the most part are named for the document number Schrade or Imperial gave them when produced. The names are the prefix for the company (SC,SW,IK) followed by a year then the document number. If it was a 2 sided document I added a -1 and for tri-fold and more I numbered the pages accordingly. While you cannot be 100% sure the knife in the picture was produced the same year that the flyer was made, it will be within 1 year of the date.

Imperial knives and Tableware
Little has been said about the "Tableware and Gadget" side of Imperial Schrade business. Pocket and hunting knives ended up being the focus of the Schrade side of the business where Imperial tended to focus on the tableware and house-wares like serving spoons and potato peelers. Below I have split out the knives and the tableware flyers produced under the Imperial name.
