I just got the opertunity to buy a piece of my family history. My Great grandfather was in the produce business in Crystal Springs back in the 30's and 40's. One of his old employees "borrowed" a knife back in the day and it has been sitting in a box in Oak Island NC for the last forty years. It is in really good shape except the long blade will not close. The blade will open, when you try to close it the blade springs back to the position you see in the pic. It was manufactured by Schrade, and I dont know if I can send it back to them or if I can have it repaired locally. What do you guys think?

Our Blade guys Dphillips and E. Martin tend to make fixed blade knives not folders.

That said they may know someone in the business they could recommend.

In the meantime...I think I'd write a nice letter and enclose the pic and send it to Schrade and see what they say....

Hope you get your little piece of history fixed up...I really like stuff like that.

Good Luck with it

+1 on contacting Schrade. I'd personally send the pic in an email if I could, and follow with a letter/pic if I got no response.

Thought I had replied to this, guess it didn't take. Schrade is now owned by Taylor Cutlery and knives with the Scrade brands (i.e. Schrade, Old Timer, and Uncle Henry) are now made in China I think. I know it is overseas somewhere. Taylor cutlery may honor the warranty of the old Schrade, not sure. It is up to you whether you contact them to find out, just know that the work will most likely not be performed in the USA. Not even sure if you will get that knife back. Just my $0.02. Finding someone to repair the knife will be difficult and usually expensive. Might want to think about oiling it up real good and putting it in a shadow box and hanging it on the wall, as is.
