Love Schrade blades. This is the second one I've purchased. This one fits the hand. No hot spots when using. Comfortable. Good edge right out of the box. Batons well. Great size for camp/survival tasks. Great price. Quick delivery.

Great product. Tough, sharp, well designed. Took back one star cause I think the black coating will come off quickly. If experience proves me wrong, I'll try to remember to return and go to 5 stars

The knife is awesome well constructed plus the service at Knife Depot was fantastic an got it to me ultra fast.

I could not be any more pleased with this knife, it is hands down number 1 in my collection. Probably the sharpest knife I've ever bought, I literally shaved with it and it only took one stroke across my skin to take the hair off. Be extremely careful when handling this knife folks, it's that damn sharp!

Seriously sharp. handle could be slippery in wet conditions. Very Happy with purchase !

This is a great knife. Perfect size, full tang and thickness makes it a knife anyone would enjoy having in their possession in time of need for bushcraft or survival. I'd would give it 5 stars if not for the powder coating. Black nitride would be a better coating in my opinion but great knife otherwise. I actually plan on buying 2 more.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is not a $700 1/4 inch thick survival knife made out of unobtainium and coated with titainium-nickel-boron-phosphate pixie dust, it's a fifty dollar SOG licensed and Taiwan built knife that will do absolutely anything the average Outdoorsman or Woman needs from a good Camp knife or a small machete but You HAVE to service the edge as soon as You get it if You want it to perform, like cutting saplings up to 2 inches thick and other extreme chores. Like any good steel blade, it will only function well if You maintain the edge and avoid cutting the dirt as much as possible. I've had mine for over a year and while it isn't as attractive as it was when new, it is still 100% functional and My high dollar knives are still Brand new because of the SOGs durability and it's ability to hold an edge. The surprising comfort and grip ability of the handle is a welcome bonus in a knife that's used wet often. If You don't need a status symbol on Your belt, buy a couple of these to bolster Your defenses and put one in each vehicle or bug-out bag because You can.
