What is the story of the knife?
It is a very comfortable tool to use and is well balanced. The blade could hold an edge a little better but this is a minor point as what it will generally be used for does not require a razor edge. It is much easier to carry or pack than a standard machete due to it size. It is heavier than the standard machete but again this is a minor factor.
First trip out with it, cleared light brush to set up tent, started the fire and sharpened it that night. Sheath offers many ways to wear it or strap it to a pack. I'm pleased with its versatility and price.
I like this knife, it is a little on the heavy side but very durable.
The Schrade Cutlery Company was founded in 1904 in Walden, New York. The quality of the cutlery produced was unique to the industry at that time. Imperial Knife Company, established in Providence, Rhode Island in 1916, grew to manufacture a full range of value-priced folding pocket knives.
In 2003, the strength of Schrade's design concepts and engineering continues to move forward with exciting, cutting edge product introductions and a respect for tradition. Representing the newest of the new is Q3 Technology for Quick, Quiet and Quality offering a series of multi-functional folders designed for maximum performance. And in recognition of its heritage, Schrade's Custom Collaboration series celebrates the uniqueness of handcrafted design in their partnerships with the nations finest custom knife makers. Blending technology and tradition, the company continues its leadership position in the global cutlery and tool marketplace.
Key to Schrade's strength as a knife maker is the workforce of talented and committed craftsmen, including third and fourth generation employees. Learning the trade from parents and grandparents, they pass along the valuable knowledge, skills and pride necessary for the consistent production of quality knives and tools. That dedication and spirit lives at the 93 acre site in Ellenville, blending the decades of experienced hand craftsmanship with some of the most modern technology available. Schrade continues to grow in leaps and bounds due to our well earned reputation for quality and value, responsiveness to an ever changing market place, innovative new products, diversification into new markets, and customer service second-to-none in the industry.
Imperial Schrade Corp., holds an ongoing commitment to the outdoors and to the future generations of Americans with whom it will be entrusted. Imperial Schrade continues to lend private sector support to programs that include Ducks Unlimited, the Federal Duck Stamp program, the NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. These programs will assist in the protection and preservation of the environment, along with educating America's youth in their heritage of participation in and care of the outdoors into the 21st century.
Note: As of 2004 Schrade Knives are made in China with the same quality and care that goes into making world's finest pocket knives, lock backs, fixed blades, cutlery for the outdoor and hunting markets and multi-tools.
