Schrade was a separate company from Schrade Cut. The Schrade brothers had a falling out and George, who was the inventive genius of the family, took the remainders of a company he had worked for in lieu of monies owed when they went bankrupt, and opened his own company in Bridgeport, producing his own designs and improvements on his designs.His brothers, retaining the Schrade company interests, sued him for patent infringement on knives they were still making on his old patents.
