While not very old, I picked up a mint 897UH today. All the edges, not blades, are extremely smooth and rounded so it should ride in the pocket like it wasn’t even there. I can definitely see this one getting a lot of pocket time!!

Just got this '02/'03 Duck Stamp knife. I'm impressed. I think all of my Schrades are the saw cut brown Delrin. I like it. I grew up with it. Its tough and IMHO some of the best looking Delrin out there. But this knife? Wow! Schrade could really do some nice bone when they wanted too. This is a very nice knife. Actually nicer than I expected :)

I got this Old Timer 7OT for Christmas yesterday! Very cool knife. I've never had a folder this big - very heavy duty!!! It's carbon steel and has 4 pins - pretty cool.


it came with a schrade sheath,


but either its the correct sheath and they kept something else in it like a pair of pliers or something, or the sheath is from a bigger tool, as the 7ot is really loose in it, or they treated the sheath with something that softened the leather too much and made it floppy. either way, I'm not bothered by the sheath because the knife is very cool.

Nice knife! I have two examples of a very similar 2003 SFO for Woodcraft with the same handles. The mint one is staying mint but I learned the hard way that these knives don't like to be dropped on hard surfaces. The horrible sharpening marks weren't created by me.

That is a really great user knife. The 1095 steel gets very sharp. Having the four pins dates it to the first 2-year production period when it was listed in the 1979 and 1980 catalogs. It didn't show up again until a 1990 flyer and the 1991 catalog as a 3-pin knife.

Thanks bladecollectorr!! and thanks for the links! yes, 1095 is great. I have the blade sharpened up pretty good already. I have a small(ish) collection of schrades. started with the fixed blades - have most of the common patterns, and now have a half dozen or so folders. love them!

Went to the Gateway Area Knife Club knife show in St. Louis today. Came home with an Old Timer 33OT new in the box, a 1984 Schrade Heritage 8341 stockman with bone handles, and a Schrade Heritage H834 with maroon Delrin and brass bolsters.
