History of Schrade Knives
The history of Schrade Knives is very interesting. With their roots in Sheffield, England and Solingen, Germany this American knife brand is one of the oldest knife brands on the market. Different characteristic designs in the knife world are produced by Schrade Knives, and the brand names associated with them. Think, for instance, of Uncle Henry Sharpfinger. A design that might be familiar amongst many knife enthusiasts.
Imperial, Uncle Henry, Old Timer, Smith & Wesson: all Schrade
Anyone who looks in the Schrade product catalogue will come across different brand names and collections. Early on Schrade decided to join forces with Imperial Cutlery, after which take-overs and new collections followed. The Uncle Henry collection, for instance, was named after the brother of the owner in the 40s: Henry Baer. Eventually, via a couple of take-overs the parent company came in the hands of Smith & Wesson. As a result the Smith & Wesson knives also belong to this group.
