Schrade SCHF51M and SCHF52M Now Available

The new for 2016 items from Schrade are still trickling in. The SCHF51M and SCHF52M models are now available at Knife Depot.

A few weeks ago we announced the availability of the SCHF51 and SCHF52 (which were updates on the well-received SCHF36 and SCHF37). So what’s the difference? For starters, the SCHF51M and SCHF52M both feature awesome Micarta handle scales as opposed to the TPE handles of the base models.

Schrade SCHF51M


Micarta is praised for being extremely tough and strong, which makes it a no-brainer for any survival or outdoor blade, such as these two Frontier models from Schrade.

Schrade SCHF42D Now Available

Schrade SCHF42D

Our slate of brand new Schrade Knives continues with the highly anticipated Schrade SCHF42D.

Based off the design from Brian Griffin, the SCHF42D is an update on the SCHF42. Make no mistake about it though, the SCHF42 (yes, the naming system can get confusing) is a hugely popular knife among those in the bushcrafting world. It was nearly universally acclaimed.

As with anything out there, there were a few suggestions for the knife that would make it near perfect.

The first was with the blade edge. The SCHF42 has a recurved blade, which can be a pain to sharpen, especially if you’re out in the field. Schrade listened to a lot of the feedback and made the SCHF42D a knife with a non-recurve blade. That means the 5.12-inch 1095 steel blade of the SCHF42D is nice and straight. For this reason alone, I can see countless people making the jump to this budget bushcrafting knife.

New Schrade SCHF43 (Jessica-X) now available


Hot off the heels of the release of the new SCHF51 and SCHF52 models comes yet another Schrade exclusive at Knife Depot: the SCHF43.

This Schrade SCHF43 is a knife that’s been teased around the web for a while, with a whole host of video reviews popping up around YouTube. If you’re not familiar with the knife, it was designed by Chris Tanner of PreparedMind101. Although the official Schrade name is SCHF43, it’s commonly called the Jessica-X. The reason is that Jessica is the name of Chris Tanner’s Becker BK7. He set out to create his own design based off the knife and fondly called it Jessica-X. That name stuck.

New 2016 Schrade SCHF51 and SCHF52 models now available

The much anticipated Schrade SCHF51 Frontier and SCHF52 Frontier are now available at Knife Depot.

So why are these two models so coveted?

Let’s break it down a bit. The SCHF51 and SCHF52 are updates on the old SCHF36 and SCHF37, which were already highly respected knives. In fact, the SCHF36 received the Blade Magazine People’s Choice of the Yeard award in 2015. Except for a few minor quibbles, those two survival fixed blades were widely hailed as great knives for any outdoorsman.

The SCHF51 and SCHF52 take things to the next level.

Taylor Brands LLC took all the criticisms and wants from reviewers and customers and made great knives even better. Let’s start with some of the specs.

Here’s the SCHF51.


The knife has the same 5.05-inch drop point blade as the SCHF36. The major change comes in the coating. Many complained that the coating was way too thick and caused some drag when batoning. Taylor Brands took the criticisms to heart and came back with a better, Teflon-like coating that’s thinner. With the new coating, the 1095 carbon steel blade is better protected and more visually appealing.

See the new TOPS Knives Skullcrusher’s Xtreme Blade (SXB)


On Discovery Channel’s show “Naked and Afraid,” survivalist EJ “Skullcrusher” Snyder survived in the wilderness (without any clothes, of course) on nothing but his (and his partner’s) wit. He did this in two intense stints on the show: one on the plains of Tanzania’s Serengeti and another in the Amazonian rainforest.

Snyder is more than just a dude on a reality show; he trained in the Army Survival School and became obsessed with all aspects of survival. Now, the Gulf War veteran has teamed up with TOPS Knives to bring Skullcrusher’s X-Treme Blade (SXB).

Here’s a description of the SXB from TOPS:

“Skullcrusher’s Xtreme Blade” (SXB) was designed for the Warrior Survivalist to aid in their survival not only in the wild, but on the battlefield as well. Xtreme Situations require an Xtreme Blade, and the SXB meets that demand and then some! Why play in the wild when you can DOMINATE it!!!

Yeah, buddy! As you can tell from the description (and several exclamation points), TOPS is pretty enthusiastic about this knife. It’s not unwarranted, though. The knife looks thoroughly badass.

CRKT To Release Three New Climber’s Knives

When you’re on the side of a cliff a couple thousand feet above the ground, nothing is more important than a strong knife… well, maybe a secure foothold is a little more important but a solid knife is still vital.

2406-niad-on-carabiner-WEB_large8_761That’s why CRKT is releasing an array of new knives optimized for hard-core climbers: the Bivy, Niad, and Hyphenate.

Because CRKT wanted to do things the right way, the company enlisted the help of someone who knows a thing or two about climbing—Hans Florine.

Pretty much all of Florine’s accomplishments leave me with sweaty palms, but his ultimate claim to fame is breaking the record for speed climbing the Nose route on El Capitan in Yosemite. Florine ascended 2,900 vertical feet in 2 hours, 23 minutes, and 46 seconds.

This new line was created in response to Florine’s desire for reliable and effortless tools. Here’s what he said in one of CRKT’s press releases:

New 2016 Schrade Knives Now Available at Knife Depot

We’re happy to announce the arrival of new 2016 knives from Schrade and Old Timer. Currently, Knife Depot is the only place you can get these specific models outside Schrade.

Check them out.

Schrade SCHF45 Leroy Full Tang Bowie


The first knife we have available is a doozy. The SCHF45 is a massive Bowie-style chopper that’s nearly 16.5 inches long with a hefty 10.35-inch blade. A video testing the prototype shows just what this beast can do.

Schrade SCHA9M Mini Landshark

Next up is the Mini Landshark. The larger iteration of the Landshark proved popular, and this mini version makes it a viable EDC option that’s legal to carry in most places. The knife itself has killer angles and an eye-catching design. The blade is 2.16 inches and uses the M.A.G.I.C. assisted opener.

New 2015 Knives from CRKT

Update: We originally wrote this post way back in January, but CRKT recently unveiled a few more 2015 mid-year years at the BLADE Show in Atlanta. You can find the new ones at the bottom.

It’s January and you know what that means… it’s time to take a look at the new knives coming your way. The SHOT Show (where companies are showcasing new knives) is currently underway, but many companies have already released the new catalogs.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look at the new knives across various brands. We’re kicking things off with the 22 new knives from CRKT.

BT-70 (Designed by Bob Terzuola)


If you’re not familiar with Bob Terzuola, the new BT-70 is the perfect way to get acquainted. Terzuola is one of the fathers of tactical knives and this collector’s piece showcases his feel for the tactical folder. It has a stonewash finish, G-10 handle scales with his dragon logo, and a blade length of 4.03 inches.

Argus Black


The Argus is a spring-assisted knife with the Outburst assisted opening mechanism. Designed by Matthew Lerch, the Argus Black has an aluminum handle and a 3.55-inch blade with black corrosion resistant coating.

No Time Off


Designed by Flavio Ikoma, the No Time Off is a burly folder that’s aimed at heavy-duty tasks. It has a waffle iron traction grip handle and a 2.99-inch blade that locks into place using the Ikoma Locking System.



The Saker is an interesting bushcraft knife by Abe Elias, with its scandi grind and 1075 carbon steel blade that’s about 4.5 inches. The handle is made from Walnut.

G.S.D. (Get S**t Done)


With a name like G.S.D. (which stands for Get S**t Done), you’d better expect a knife that’s tough, reliable, and functional. Check, check, and check. It has a classic industrial look and can handle heavy-duty tasks.

Hunt’N Fisch

CRKT Hunt'N Fisch

We’re starting to get to the puns. The Hunt’N Fisch plays off designer Larry Fischer’s name and is a fixed blade hunting knife with tons of jimping and some interesting grooves on the spine.

It’s designed to be an all-around hunting and fishing knife with a blade of 2.99 inches made of 8Cr13MoV steel. It has G-10 scales on the handle.
