    Default schrade extreme survival knife schf9

    I know, there's two posts about it but I wanted to hear more opinions about it, I know it's not perfect and it might not be a "bushcraft" knife but it looks like a beast! I really have that "itch" to buy it.

    Only one way to find out for sure, buy it.

    It would be hard to go wrong for $40 quoted on one of the videos I seen. A Becker would be your other option, but it will run you twice that amount. Heck if a Mora will stand up to what people put them through it's hard to believe this blade wouldn't provide some fun times.

    It looks solid, but for me it's way too big. It might work ok for batoning or heavy work, but in survival, a knife gets used for things like making trap triggers and carving implements of all sorts. This blade is too wide and long for my tastes: it'd be really awkward to carve with. I think that's one reason why Moras are so popular: They're solidly in that "goldilocks zone".. not too big, not too small... just right.

    I hear you on the "too big" part, I gotta cold steel bushman and I don't use it much because the blade is a bit too long, still tho, there's something about this knife that I find really attractive...who knows...maybe the price. I don't really baton or chop with knives, I prefer to carry a hatchet but it is nice in case you use it for that.
    Yep, maybe weird for carving but I'm sure we all carry more than one knife, I think I will give it a go. Can't go wrong with that price...that is, of course, if I get to find one. Seems to be out of stock everywhere.
    Thanks

    It's a wicked blade for the price. The recurve of the blade shortens it height wise towards the choil, and when using the choil for finer carving it works surprisingly well. The recurve also gives it a good amount of belly, and solid forward weight for chopping. It's not a hatchet, and it's not a mora, but it's a good 'one knife' if that's your kinda thing.

    Mistwalker, a member here and other forums, designed it. He's a knowledgeable guy who knows his way around a knife.

    Bought it, didn't like it - curvy blade was too hard to sharpen and it really needed sharpened out of the box. Gave it away and bought an Ontario SP50 and WOW ! Really like the SP50 much better and its made in the USA !

    Thanks
