The tradition of passing an Old Timer knife down from one generation to the next has proven Old Timer as a reliable and trusted brand recognized the world over. Old Timer knives such as our traditional folders, fixed blades and the Copperhead Series are designed to serve your every day needs, yet built for generations. Old Timer is a trustworthy knife to have when in the backwoods or around the house. With several size and tool options available, you can rest easy knowing that Old Timer will have the knife you can rely on for any situation.
My collection includes many USA Schrade knives in various configurations. This one was not made here, but this Taylor Brands knife is in keeping with the Schrades of yesteryear. The ebony & rosewood scales along with the shiny bolsters are reminiscent of the knives once made in Rhode Island. This 29OT shows minor quality control issues, e.g. one scale not precisely flush with bolster, blade looseness when closed, a metallic nick within the ending letter, R, and on one of the diagonal nickel-silver woods separator, and finally imperfect metal cuts behind the lockback bar. Regardless of these minute flaws, the knife remains appealing, and the only addition I wish this knife had . . . brass liners like the ones found in the Schrade originals. I certainly don't consider it a "beater" knife; it's definitely suitable as a gentlemen's knife and the attractive leather pouch reinforces that notion. Pleased to add it to my assortment of other Schrade knives.
Picture shows and says nickel silver bolsters and the spacer in the picture is nickel silver...received mine and its all brass...not what I expected...I ordered it because of the silver accents in the pic...
This knife is very nice, especially for the price. I think anyone would like to add this to the collection or simply use this as an EDC knife. It isn't up to the standards of Buck/Case when it comes to traditional folding knives. But I would hope that you wouldn't expect it to with the price. I would recommend this knife to most.
I purchased this knife along with a Buck brand folding knife of about the same price. The Buck knife is much higher quality, and feels great in the hand. Even so, this Schrade is not a bad knife for the price. The reasons I gave this 3 stars is the product description said it had polished nickel fittings and mine came with brass, and it is not comfortable in the hand, the handle is too thin.
Got this for my husband he has a pocket knife fetish...he was very pleased with it!!
I love Schrade Old Timer knives! I have a number of them and when I saw this I had to have it AND its smaller version (28OT) and I'm glad i got them both. Great quality, handsome looks, highly recommend BOTH knives. (I assume this and the 28OT are new models, I haven't seen them until now at least)
Good knife, dropped it and the handle cracked where the hole for the start is but not bad. Good knife for the price
Amazing! Very sharp and durable, not to mention- very pretty! My husband loved it!!!
