Schrade LB7 Knife Repair

Knife Repair in Wilmer Alabama

I received a call today from a lady asking if I could repair her husband’s Old Henry Schrade knife LB7.

I told the lady I would have to see the knife before I could quote a price for repair. Let me explain why:

The Schrade LB7 has been a popular knife for many years. It first appeared in 1978. When first manufactured the knife used an upper spring assembly of the bar and keeper type. This assembly is 3rd from the bottom in the picture. A change made several years later (around 1984 I think) replaced the bar and keeper spring assembly with a one-piece spring. These springs are the 1st and 2nd from the bottom in the photo.

The one-piece springs often break and repair would involve purchasing the part or making one in my shop. The bar and keeper assembly normally does not break but may become disassembled if the blade is forced beyond normal open position.

Once I know which mechanism the husband’s knife has, the better I can determine the problem and give an estimate for repairs.

Mobile AL Knife Sharpening Special For March 2015

Spring is coming. I offer year round sharpening services and routinely sharpen lawn mower blades, knives, scissors, hand tools, and hand saws among others. I can sharpen most edges on site – those that do not need to be sharpened with special tools or equpment. In addition to sharpening I provide repairs as well.

For the month of March, 2015, I am offering a spring sharpening special:

  • Any 10 kitchen knives for $35
  • Any 6 garden hand tools for $35

Gather up your knives and garden tools and call me. I will come to your place of business or home to sharpen kitchen cutlery, hand shears, shovels, hoes and other kitchen and garden items.

If you need your electric chain saws or drill bits sharpened, I can do those while onsite too – at the regular price.

Give me a call or email so we can make the arrangements.
