Belive me, this knife is as fine a knife I have seen. I purshed several to use as a gift for my sons and friend, of course I have one I kept for myself. If you want a a strong, handsome carry piece, this is the correct choice for you.
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.
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.
nice heavy working man's knife.
For the price paid, this is an excellent knife. Since this knife is a "dagger-type" blade (spear-point), The blade has a narrow scope of application. The 7Cr17MoV steel takes a good edge (as does Schrade's "Sharpfinger" skinning knife). This knife can be used for some hunting applications, but without the curved blade similar to that of the Sharpfinger and other knives made by Schrade, it limits the knife's uses. I like this knife and will be seeking a sheath that will conceal the knife either down my back (behind the neck) or a horizontal belt carry. Discretion, being the better part of valor, is the very essence of keeping this knife a "secret" until it is absolutely necessary to deploy it.
Loved this product, I bought it for a birthday gift for a friend. The sharpening stone is perfect, the knife is a great solid weight knife, extremely sharp out of the box.
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!
Finely made and great pocket knife although it is a bit large. All round great purchase. I have purchased six as gifts for best friends. Likely will get more. I do own this knife.
