The Schrade Cutlery Company began in Walden, NY in 1904.  Schrade made a multitude of knives, and made knives for many different civic groups.  Most Schrade knives referred to in ther catalog as "Boy Scout" or "scout" knives were actually just camp knife patterns, also frequently referred to as "scout knives".  Schrade made very few offcial BSA knives.
