I liked the old school schrades, new stuff does not seem to have the quality of the old blades. 

I carried a small three blade schrade pocket knife everyday of middle, high school, and college.  Then I lost it. 

My dad and gradpop always carried schrades.  They were a decent knife.

Yep, I have that one and the drop point too. I like the trailing point for skinning and the drop point for gutting. I have so many newer knives through the years I can't remember the last time I used them, though.

Sorry not custom but somewhat vintage. The first five on left except the bark river are from the seventies. A Buck, Case and two Gerbers all made in the USA. Funny thing my brother Doug told me to buy a big knife because we were going black bear hunting in the Deadstream swamp up north. The knife has to be a foot long !
I think around here that Schrade had to be one of the most popular in the day especially for the money

Darn it Kev, now I have to dig out the Queen gut hook knife you got me.
Isn't the knife between the Case and the Gerbers an old Wolverine?

Bought one of these about 25 years ago on a visit to Orlando.  Still have it and use frequently but the blade is a little worn down now from sharpening.  Has been a good knife.

I have a Golden Spike too Ed.  Decent knife despite the false antler grip.  Have used it on the last few deer hunts.

Years ago , I showed an AG Russell 'pig sticker' to a fellow that worked at Camillus. The blade was well worn. He suggested he might be able to 'clean it up'. He returned the knife w/ a brand new blade. They still had parts long after the knife was out of production.

Dogger, If your interested, you might contact Wallace @ Rock USA. He does repairs & restorations. He might have a replacement blade for your Schrade, or know someone who has one. For many years, Camillus , Schrade & Western were under the same corporate umbrella. Camillus produced knives under contract for many different names and brands including Buck, Cold Steel,  Case , the list goes on,,,,

Thanks for the tip HM, I'll check on that - depending on cost might be worth a look.

I’m from Syracuse originally and lived in Camillus for a number of years. The rep group that I work for represented Crosman air guns and at one point Crosman owned Western Cutlery. We visited Western in Longmont, CO and couldn’t believe how spotless clean the factory was.

Back in the day when Camillus was making Buck folding knives I think everyone in town had a couple Buck folders😂.

I still have a few Westerns and Bucks.
