In July 2004, the year the company celebrated its 100th anniversary, the Schrade factory in Ellenville was closed. The Schrade name was purchased by Taylor Brands, LLC, who continue to manufacture products under the Schrade brand name as well as Old Timer, Uncle Henry, Imperial, and Smith &Wesson knives. That production is now in mainland China. Thus, the pre-2004 is high sought-after, by collectors.
