The Schrade Story



Catapulted from his press button switchblade patent in 1892, George Schrade embarked on a journey that would eventually lead to one of the most iconic knife brands ever. Schrade knives are rooted in history, seeing the turn of a century (twice!), the Industrial Revolution, a great depression, 2 world wars and a man on the moon. During this time, knife companies have come and gone, but Schrade has held strong.

George Schrade was hell-bent on providing innovative and tough knives that served a purpose and never settled for anything less. We hold closely that innovative and problem-solving value that George Schrade built his legacy on and are always working to provide our customers with the most thoughtful and useful designs on the market.

Creating the toughest and most durable knives on the market is a value that Schrade Cutlery also holds to this day. Schrade knife owners work hard and deserve tools that can be relied on to be as tough as they are and that last a lifetime.
