Schrade SCH112 Shasta Mc'Nasty Full Tang Fixed Blade Knife
Functional, versatile, and badass? That's what the Schrade SCH112 Shasta Mc'Nasty perfectly encapsulates. Designed by Joshua Waggoner, the knife is styled after the karambit, which is in turn inspired by the claws of big cats. This fixed blade boasts a 5.21-inch blade with a curve that's reminiscent of a sickle.
The dual-edged blade made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel makes the knife useful in all types of situations. Just below the textured black TPR handle is the iconic finger ring. The ring allows for multiple carrying techniques, depending on how you want to use the knife.
Rounding out the Shasta Mc'Nasty is a thermoplastic belt sheath.

Great hide out knife, came sharp as needed
Design is beautiful and functional! sheath works fine with the least practice! Comfortable in the hand, transitions well. The ring is chambered on the inside, and needs to also be chambered on the outside, as the edge is hard on the fingers outside the ring when spinning and transitioning! And NO KNIFE GETS FIVE STARS IF IT COMES FROM THE BOX (and I bought two!) TOO DULL TO EASILY SLICE PAPER! Both knives were dull! That is a disgrace for any knife company as well known as Schrade! For shame!
Nice knife came sharp but needed a little touch up...this is bigger than I thought it would be but that's fine....both sides are sharp, the ring on handle is way too big......the no way too clip or wear it without a belt or tying it too something take a close look at the sheath it has no clip only one belt loop other than that nice knife nasty bad
Nice design, made for small to med hands. I have XXL hands and it is too small for me
I was looking forward to receiving this blade. I was anxious to get this blade in my hand. But was I disappointed! Don't get me wrong or misunderstand me, As far as Schrade products go, once again the quality is typical Schrade. The blade itself is well made and stylish. Good steel and quality material used for the handle. The blade's double edge was sharp out of the box. BUT....that all goes out the window when the blade, the knife itself is dangerous for the user. The handle is or I should say lack of more handle makes this knife sub-par and dangerous to use. The handle is far too small for this monster karambit or some might call a karambit-style blade. I am a small man, only 5'5, but I am well built and strong for my size. Of course at my height I have fairly small hands. This, in retrospect should allow me to grab more of any knife's handle and get a nice tight, functional grip, more so than the man with large hands. Well, this blade's handle only allows for a two fingered grip, and a lose grip at that, before third (ring) and fourth (baby) fingers are on top of sharp blade. This is absolutely unacceptable....for any knife. I cannot believe the designers and those in quality control at Schrade would allow this. This is common sense. What were you blockheads thinking? The knife becomes dangerous for the user if they cannot get a firm grip on the handle for any reason. In this case because there isn't enough handle. There is always some level of danger when a knife user thrusts chops, stabs or cuts with their knife using extreme force. Their hand could accidentally slips and be drawn across the blade and be cut. I have seen this happen a number of times. This blade basically invites this type of accident to happen. The blade needs at least another good inch of handle length (flat and unsharpened steel) and more material (in this case rubber) over the handle. There are only two real cons or negatives with this knife. As far as the blade itself, the handle is the only negative on this knife in my opinion. It is a well made and stylish knife as I stated earlier, but the lack of handle length and the danger for the user that surrounds this issue is serious...in my opinion (and you know what they say about opinions). Second con or negative is the sheath. It is a decently made sheath, but what a pain in the ass it is as far as pulling the blade out of the sheath is. I mean serious pain in the ass. Absolutely two hands needed to pull this sucker out, and even then it's a pain. This is a well made, strong knife, but the small handle is a serious issue concerning safety and that it will hinder the blade's capabilities due to a weak grip. The sheath design makes the knife slow to draw. For me, this is all that can be said about this knife. Hopefully I will be able to modify the handle, possibly add (wrap) more material around the sharpened area of the blade that could possibly cause me injury. If not, the knife will remain a nice decorative piece to my knife collection.
The knife is ok. Wasn't very sharp. The sheath is horrible. You need two hands to take out and put the knife in it. Totally useless as a belt knife.
