One of the best knives I've ever had the pleasure of owning.
It is the perfect knife as a "Just in case" protection defense. It is compact and the push handle feels very secure in my hand. Much easier to carry than a full tang small blade knife. I carry it whenever I leave the hous.
The knife is very well made and came sharp. The blade shape allow for thrusting as well as slashing. It fits me well but people with large hands may have an issue with their hand contacting the sharp base of the blade in reverse grip. The sheath is OK but not as high quality as the knife. Well worth the price.
I own four Old Timers and received my first one for Christmas thirty three years ago. I've skinned countless Whitetails, Caribou, Bear, and most recently a Moose. Ever time I use the knife someone asks what it is and comments how well it works when skinning. I finally broke the tip this year while trying to split the pelvic bone on my sons buck, so off to the grinding wheel and sharpening stone. A little misshapen but still my first choice when afield.
This blade is one of the best values for the price I have seen. Yes, it is foreign made, but the quality of the steel and the fit and finish are excellent and very close to several bushcraft / survival blades I own that cost 3 times more ! The sheath is basic, but serviceable and the ferro rod and sharpener are a real bonus . Schrade got it right with the SCHF 51.
Upon opening, it seemed like a truly impressive package. It has good weight, balance, and seems intimidating. I immediately took to putting it through its paces puncturing both plastic, and steel drums. Great for chopping limbs, and handles batoning wood quite well. Very impressed!
I like the knife. It sticks a little & doesn't have the smoothest opening, but I will say, I really wanted one & Knife Depot was one of the only places I could find it & it was a great price.
Nice compact 2 bladed knife. Having my grand-daughters name on it was a real plus!
The Schrade Cutlery Company was founded in 1904 in Walden, New York. The quality of the cutlery produced was unique to the industry at that time. Imperial Knife Company, established in Providence, Rhode Island in 1916, grew to manufacture a full range of value-priced folding pocket knives.

Blending technology and tradition, the company continues its leadership position in the global cutlery and tool marketplace.
Key to Schrade's strength as a knife maker is the workforce of talented and committed craftsmen, including third and fourth generation employees. Learning the trade from parents and grandparents, they pass along the valuable knowledge, skills and pride necessary for the consistent production of quality knives and tools. That dedication and spirit lives at the 93 acre site in Ellenville, blending the decades of experienced hand craftsmanship with some of the most modern technology available.
