Our Schrade Collection and Reference of OT and UH

This set of web pages is dedicated to the knives and other items  made by the Schrade families of knife craftsmen and craftswomen over the last 100 years.

All the images displayed here are the personal property of the owner of this site or of the persons whom have asked to have the image or article presented. I will not sell any of these items. They are displayed here for our edification and gratification. I will supply an e-mail address below to use to submit pictures, articles, or reviews of knives related to the Schrade's.

I will not be offering a discussion forum and am not considering a "blog". To discuss these and any of the Schrade related products, please come see all the Schrade-aholics or as we have been known to call ourselves "Uncle Henry's Lost Souls" at Bladeforums.com and AAPK. They do a far better job of running a forum than I could.

Recently I have been gathering information on the Colonial Knife, another of the older large east coast knife companies with the hope of another section for this site. Robert Paolantonio is publishing a book on his families company and has shared a few pictures with myself and Scott. Scott has created a blog with these pictures and some good information for viewing at  http://pocketknivesblog.com/category/colonial/  While there check out his other entries.

I hated to do do this but, to protect others from the unscrupulous few, I have been asked and have agreed to add a watermark to the items I have displayed that have been found being sold as originals.
