The perfect small knife for me, but those with thick fingers may not think so.
The knife was not sharp when it arrived and it has a hollow grind, not a flat grind as it was designed to have. It will make the knife inherently weaker; especially at the tip.
Here in Tokyo where I live, I've paid about USD$115.00 for this blade, but worth every Yen because of its quality and the name KA-BAR, a synonym for the best battle-proven combat/utility knives. I own 2 of these Fighters and brandish them every once in a while when I practice Krav Maga, a full contact fighting system invented by the Israelis, and one of them is always within my reach for any emergency. Like an M1911 .45ACP, these knives have a fine stopping power and with one stab or slash you can kill somebody. They are like twin daughters to me and I treasure them as bona fide tactical/fighting knives. Definitely the sharpest knives ever owned ! They slice papers like butter and the clip-point blade tip is like a needle so it penetrates very well. The enhanced knife tang of the Fighter is also thicker than the legendary USMC combat knife, thus more robust and resistant to abuse if necessary. It is a traditional military-issued knife made out of traditional carbon steel and is susceptible to corrosion, but a simple treatment with mineral oil on regular basis does the trick ! Literally, "you can buy any knife, or you can own a KA-BAR".
The SCHF9 is well balanced and suitable for heavy tasks. It is not a great knife for fine carving, but that's not what it's designed for. When it comes to chopping and batoning dense wood, this knife really performs. With it's thick back, full tang construction, and 1095 steel, I'd put it up against similar survival knives at twice the price. I highly recommend this knife for bushcraft and camping, and would make a great addition to a bug out or 72 hour survival bag.
The knife is exactly as shown in the computer image. It's light weight and, easy to withdraw from it's sheath. It's well made with evident craftsmanship. I like it and the price was right. Thank you very much!
I presently have purchased (6) six of these wonderful M3 Trench knives for male members of my family. These knives are a perfect all around knife for camping and hunting. As a retired Navy Officer I can attest that these knives are every bit as good as the originals that were issued back in the Big War. I currently own a Boker original M3 Trench Knife and it is hard to tell any difference. Just one Great knife.
Passed it off to seventeen year old girl. She shot her Buck early morning took that new knife and went right to work. Great knife that is designed to do the job with ease-Thanks
