Taylor Made Old Timer Knife review.
« on: January 11, 2016, 11:03:23 am »

I was crushed when Schrade closed it doors back in 2004 and I set out to buy up all the Made in the USA ones I could afford.  Fast forward a few years and Taylor Company bought the Rights to Schrade name and product line and they started turning out POOR Copies move forward to 2014 and some one let me borrow a Taylor made Old Timer and it was way better than the first ones I had seen. Still I was being a snob and put off buying one.  Dec 2015 I find a used 8OTW on Ebay and I got it for 4 bucks.  Now after nearly a month of carrying it I can tell you it back to being Equal with the Pre 2004 OT made in the USA with the exception they are not offered in Carbon Steel.

I got out my Grandpa's OT8 and my HS Graduation Present OT8 and they are the same size , weight and other than this one have ironwood scales they sharpen and cut equally.

So if your looking for a new classic styled pocket knife and you can't afford a Case look hard at a Taylor made Schrade or Imperial Pocket Knife.

I carried a 340T many years. I must have had a dozen or so over the years. They have about a five year shelf life before they just vanish. :o Never knew why or how. They would just disappear.  ;)

I have always enjoyed schrade stuff. I bought a Taylor Uncle Henry Filet knife around Christmas and can tell you, it was a great knife for deer cleaning and processing. Bought one for each of the guys in immediate family.

Great to hear Taylor is ensuring a good product. I carry a Schrade 885UH Stockman and have it's little brother 834UH Rancher, both with the jig bone scales.
 Both are knives my dad had bought years ago that I got after he passed away in 2001.

Yep both of mine 0T8 are pre 1985  Grandpa's a 1972 model but he left it at home a ton and carried a 340 that I got also.
I got an OT Barlow coming off Ebay and I will review it soon.

This Taylor Made OT is still holding an edge and all I have done is stropped it once on the bottom of a coffee cup and the rest of the time 10 strokes each side on some card board and it will still shave your arm.

Pre Spring Break update still going strong.

On a side note the OT Barlow had backsprings so strong on the pen blade I had to work with it for 2 weeks to get it loosed up enough to open with out using my nite Ize key chain tool.

blades have taken and kept a good edge also.

The more I use it the better it gets. So far all I have to do is strop it on some leather and it still shaving arm hair.   It also holding up wear and tear  wise in my pocket.

Go by Wal Mart or your hardware store and get a Taylor made Old Timer you will be happy you did.

I am keeping it in my rotation and will report some more during the summer, but so far My Taylor made OT8 been as good as any of my 30-50 year old ones I have in my collection. So you can buy Taylor Made Schrade / Old Timers with confidence they will do the job.

  Cabela's has a nice sale on their SOG field pup knives.
  Definitely not their top of the line knife, but a very good value.  4" Stainless, full tang, nice handle, leather sheath $12.99.  Picked up 2, razor sharp right out of the box.  Impressive knife for that price.  Has a 7Cr17mov blade, which is a softer steel.  They will probably sell out fast.

I had an Old Timer for many years that had a horse pick on it. It was a great knife.  The horse pick was very handy.  I need to find another one.

Look on EBay for a USA one or get a Taylor made one. The Saddleman is the name they call them.

You just can't beat a Schrade I have an Uncle Henry 152UH my step dad gave me a long time ago. At first around 76-77 he gave me an Old Timer just like it, great hunting knife, around three inch blade with a little curve to it. Well about twenty years ago he asked me if I still had it, sure u said. He asked to see it, took it out and put this Uncle Henry in the case, bone handled, beautiful knife. I have no idea how long he had it, or how many deer it has dressed, but it has been a lot. I imagine I will give it to one of my sons or grandsons, just don't know which one. I like your updates and the looks of it, maybe I'll buy enough to give one to all of them.
