Just checked my collection and also found a 1040T two-blade Old Timer in the original box ("Made and Printed in the U.S.A." "Imperial Schrade Corp., 7 Schrade Court, Ellenville, NY 12428-0981") and with the original paperwork. My Sharp Finger with Old Timer badge (Schrade U.S.A. 152) was bought new probably more than 30 years ago and has never been used.

I have an original Schrade Old Timer 180T (locking single-blade) in like new condition and two Schrade "708"s, a very nice small two-blade pocket knife, an a Sharp Finger.

Oh - sorry. I misunderstood. ASAIK, the Chinese Taylors are required to have the name 'China' on it somewhere. The original have U.S.A. stamped on them somewhere, ususally on the blade ricasso. That is about all I know.

Doug, I just picked up a new 3 blade stockman Old Timer and along with what looks like the original badge on the side it has Schrade written on the base of the main blade. Pretty sure it’s made in China.

Schrades were not custom made pretty pretty knives - just an honest well made tool that we took for granted would last forever.
This.

I have an old US made Schrade Old Timer slip joint...Improved Muskrat. Excellent steel. Easy to sharpen. Wicked sharp edge. Excellent companion to a larger blade for bush craft, cleaning fish or processing small game. I would take an older used knife ahead of any of the newer ones. The blade *is* the knife, and the old steel is much better in these old Schrades. Better grain, better tempering, better edge retention.

As far as I can determine, I bought that 1040T more than 25 years ago. As I did with most of the knives I bought years ago (I don't buy very many any more), I just put them away.

You can still find many real USA made Old Timers, on Ebay, at flea markets, knife shops, etc., you don't have to buy the made in China "Schrade" knives.

A pair of Smith & Wesson kives. Switch blade on taop and folding on bottom. I'm surprised at how sharp they both came and how easy it is to sharpen them.
