My sister and I purchased 8-customized Schrade knives to send my son and his friends in Afghanistan for Christmas. They are 10th Mountain Division and Knife Depot did a great job on the etching and getting me the knives in time to get to Afghanistan on December 24th. All of our troops who received them loved them.
I just received my knife, and first off, what a beast this knife looks and feels like it can do anything. It was fairly sharp out of the box but nothing special, however five minutes on the stone and I had a knife I could shave with. The black protective coating was quite thick, which was a concern for some, but a few minutes with a new Green Scrubby (that thing your Wife uses to clean pots and pans) smoothed and thinned the coating without damaging it. The sharpening stone and Ferro rod are nice additions, but the sheath really does the knife a dis-service. In my opinion this knife deserves a nice leather sheath, tooled to match the design on the handle and stained black, which I will provide it with. All in all, this appears to be a good all around knife, one that will serve equally well in the Deer camp, survival situations, self defense, or any other task where a good sturdy knife is needed. This is certainly no wall hanger, and for the price one should not be afraid to put this knife to use.
Well built and almost indestructible survival knife of exceptional quality.
I really like the weight of the knife and I think it will be perfect for my b.o.b. and for survival.
The survival knife handles all tasks in a great manner. For the price it is a great value
Good package for the money. Good thickness, weight, balance. Finger holes good, a little too aggressive but tolerable,this is fixed in 2016 blade. Blade coating okay but easily removed if wanted. Overall, a winner of a blade for camping, survival, etc. No regrets.
I've had mine for 2 yrs now and love it. Great grip, holds a sharp edge. I use it for wilderness hiking/camping, starting fires, splitting small logs etc. Love the sheath. I have my fire starter rod and small sharpening stone in it. friends like it. Wouldn't trade it for any other knife I've seen. I bought it for the knife alone, and love it, but I have to say the sheath is the best design I have ever seen. I wouldn't trade it for any other I have seen.
The absolute best knife I've ever purchased love the weight and thickness of the blade the ferro rod and sharpening stone were the icing on the cake the complete package
