I own several Schrade products, from both the original American company as well as the Taylor Brands versions. All have been great quality. I first saw this on PreparedMind101's youtube page and was hooked as soon as I saw it. When I saw that they were available on here I jumped. Overall I will say that the knife looks and feels just as I imagined it would. It is exactly what I was looking for. I can't afford the Survive Knives GSO 7/7 which is very similar in blade design. This is the perfect alternative. Firstly, Knife Depot was awesome. I placed the order super easily and selected regular ground shipping. Once checked out, the shipping estimate was for 3-3 weeks and delivery date around 11/22/14. I received a tracking number the next day after placing my order and then a notification that it shipped the following day. 3 days later it was in my mail box. AWESOME! I am extremely happy with Knife Depot for their quick shipping. Under promise and over deliver. Can't say enough. My only complaint is with the actual knife. The tip was bent when I took it out of the box. I'm sure I could just send it back and get a replacement but instead I used some pliers to slowly bend it back and then reprofiled the edge of the tip with a stone. It's not perfect but it's close enough I guess. Other than this small issue, the knife is exactly as I expected. If the tip was straight it would have been 5 stars. The sheath is just as cheap as I knew it would be. Not horrible but not great either. (what more could you want for $35?) Also, the sharpening block and fire steel make it a great value. Once I finish reprofiling the knife, take the coating off and buy a new sheath I will have the perfect package. May even get some micarta scales once they become available. Overall, 4 out of 5 because of the defect. Otherwise it is an incredible value for a chunk of 1095 this size.

Quality beyond compare excellent addition to my collection.

Exceptional knife, one of my favorites.

It's was a good knife the sheath wasn't too bad as long as had all the way in it was good, downside being it broke at the handle. Would I get this knife again probably not I would prefer a more thicker knife.

I tried to get the blade to loosen, by applying pressure from four sides . It stayed straight . I don't recommend chopping down a tree with it . But I believe you could field dress a deer. Could go to your door to greet some unwanted guest? But I'm not suggesting it, but it is a scary looking weapon.

The knife is a Copey,But built well, compass work well. I measured inside the handle and found a 3/4 inch peace of steel holding the guard. The peace of steal is 3/4 by 1/4 inch up in the 1/2 "steal insert. In my opinion the knife is a keep sake. But I believe you could gut a dear with it or let your wife cut up steaks and chicken, But I am going to build a glass case for it, and hang on wall, the knife came in perfect condition.

I purchased this item because I liked the way it looked in the infomercial. I wasn't disappointed. This is a heavy, beefy knife that came with a very keen edge. I have heard complaints about the sheath that came with this knife, but other than to say my personal preference in sheath material is kydex, I have no complaints. I really like the gimping on this knife as it aids in control for fine tasks. I haven't a chance to take this knife into the field yet,so it's reliability is unproven.Otherwise,I would given it a full five stars.

Well I was in the market for a good made in America fixed blade knife when I came upon this one. This knife came dull which is not a problem because you should know how to sharpen a knife anyway. Anyway, I had it with me when I was guiding my girlfriend deer hunting. She ended up getting a nice buck and I got to do all the field dressing. I have owned a lot of knives and cleaned a lot of deer. I always own American knives and try to get ones with lifetime warranties. Well long story shorter, I gutted, skinned, and quartered out her deer with my new okc.... And I never sharpened it once throughout the processing! I was astonished it was still sharp after skinning the buck and to my amazement it was sharp after I quartered him out too! Not as sharp as when I began but still not dull. Plus I split his pelvic bone right after gutting him. I have never used or owed a knife that held an edge like this one. The handle is now a deep earthy red and I leather oiled the sheath. I couldn't be happier. Best knife money I have spent.
