Default new knife help. Schrade

I new to knives, had a few kershaws, ka-bars, and bucks, but nothing really nice, and don't know too much. My EDC is a Schrade SCHF16, seems like a solid knife but I know nothing about the company or the knife. I have found nothing useful on google or youtube. Anyone have any info on these?

Schrade has been making knives for many decades, I have owned a few Old Timers over the years. Should be a serviceable tool, if not as sexy as say an SOG.

Enjoy your Schrade with confidence.

They were bought out by United Cutlery. And manufacturing sent to ching-chong (per wiki') So i geuss if you have an old USA one, might be nice..

In 2004 Schrade went bankrupt. While they did not make the best knives in the world, they did make good quality, serviceable knives at a reasonable price, and used good honest 1095 steel in their pocket knives, such as their Uncle Henry line of knives. The name was bought out by Taylor, who also makes the Smith and Wesson line of knives, and production moved to China.

Several of the craftsman who worked at the old Schrade factory formed a company called Canal Street Cutlery, who make a high quality product.

I have quite a few of the old original Schrade and Uncle Henry (the 'upscale' line).

As the Possum said, they were a good knife for the money. I still carry a US made one everyday.

I tried a couple of the Chinese versions, I think they are pretty good, close, but not quite the same.
If you can't find a old US made one, then I would think any 'good' Chinese knife would compare to the new Schrade.
