    Does anyone have a source for old Schrade USA pocket knives?

    I'd like to get my hands on a couple of their folder I realy like the look of a 123OT but all I can find is the China made stuff.

    I'm looking ofr a user not a display piece, there are a few on ebay but they have a no knife sales in the UK policy so I can't get them shipped to England - can't even put an offer in and get them shipped elsewhere

    I can’t help you find your antique Schrade but if you are looking for an American made high quality knife like we use to make take a look at great eastern cutlery.

    Friend has done a fair amount of business with "allaboutpocketknives dot com" and has been quite happy with them.

    Not for sale.... just wanted to make you jealous. I found this old Schrade knife in the sand at a lake years ago. It was old then, and much older now. It lives on my artist bench and gets used a lot.

    Join up at Bladeforums and watch their "traditionals" classified section. Plenty old Schrades there.

    028C4B72-CFE3-4E8D-B6BD-6D9698BE32F5.jpeg Might try some old school hardware stores, one here in town had some old stock. I was eyeing a couple and someone came in and bought his entire stock before I got back. Got my favorite pocket knife at a garage sale. $1.25 doesn’t help you much in the UK though. Estate sales also.

    Didn't realise this particular model is rare since it was only made for a short period

    $100+ (I'll have to pair a fair bit in delivery charges and taxes too) is a lot to drop on something I cannot handle before I hand over the cash

    So I have decided to try one of the Chinese made ones to see if the pattern suits before I look again

    seem to mainly be one collectors though so I'm not holding out for a used one
