Muela of Spain Fixed Blade Knives
Great designed GI Tanto, blade is well purposed for use and the construction is heavy duty. The hands and sheath are both well fitted for the blade.
The knife is well constructed, it is a KABAR, the only issue I have is with the sheath. While it is a good construction and well design, there is a small pouch that is on the front of the sheath that could be used for something but that something is not clear.
I have a number of Shrade knives and they're all quality blades. I'd stack my Shrade next to any knife costing three times as much. 1095 carbon steel is one of the easiest to sharpen steels on the market. It holds it's edge, I can litterally shave with any one of them. They're thick, tough, durable full tang tools you'll pass on to your children and they're more than capable. What have you got to loose for thirty bucks. If you buy one Shrade you will buy more. I've never bought a knife that was so well made and of such high quality steel for such a reasonable price than Schrade.
very nice knife,just very dull,2 min on belt sander it slices thru paper!well worth the $$
I very much like the Silver Stag (D2) Knife Brand ... Will buy More for Sure ...!!!
Loved it so much going to order a few more!
This knife is a larger version of my "Sharpfinger" (even larger than the "Sharpfinger XL"). The blade is relatively stout and is heavy enough to handle camping chores, deer/elk skinning with ease. For a 53-year-old design, it has improved since 1964, aging like fine wine. That just goes to show you how a good knife build never gets old. The Chinese 7Cr17MoV Stainless steel isn't the best steel in the world, but it is cost-effective. Properly heat treated, it can reach between 54-57 on the Rockwell hardness scale, keeping an excellent edge that will last for three deer or two elk between sharpenings. The sheath is solid and effective, it holds the knife in position without permitting the edge to be exposed while the knife is carried. I like carrying this knife in the inverted position on my left side. The swiveling strap instantly accommodates this mode. For concealed "city carry" you can't beat that. Believe it or not, I can effectively hide this knife beneath a sports jacket without detection. (If you wear a heavier coat, it can virtually disappear beneath that as well). I like this knife. It does everything it is designed to accomplish, and then some. If you're looking for a bigger skinning knife on a budget without any concern about rust destroying it, look no further It is "better than average" for the price paid. What more can you ask? If you're a big-game hunter on a tight budget, buy it. It should serve you for years to come.
The quality is excellent, the size in all is just right for me,the handle is very comfortable
