Schrade Shredder!

Schrade Shredder!
The SCHF9 Extreme Survival
Knife Delivers On Slice And Price.

Crocodile Dundee had it right. Most experts agree, in a critical survival situation you’re better off with a big knife than a small one. The reasoning is simple: A large knife can do many of the same tasks as a small knife, but a small knife can’t handle the heavy-duty tasks a large one will. Schrade’s SCHF9 Extreme Survival Knife fills the large knife bill in spades, and does it for a small price to boot.

There’s a lot to like about this big Schrade, starting with its 6.4-inch, recurved, Filipino Bolo-inspired blade. That added weight at the end of the blade makes for superb chopping and the recurve at the base edge serves to “trap” whatever it is slicing. The blade is made of easy-to-sharpen 1095 high-carbon steel topped with a metallic gray Teflon coating to assist in impeding corrosion. Finger grooves on the handle make for sure gripping, further aided by fish-scale textured, rubberized Kraton scales which help absorb shock during use. Just shy of a pound, the 15.9-ounce SCHF9 is a knife built for chopping and can easily fell small trees for shelter building.

With this power monger comes a MOLLE-adaptable black Cordura sheath, reinforced with a plastic stiffening sleeve and topped with a pouch for keeping a folder, sharpening stone or a host of small survival goodies such as fish hooks, Band-aids and the like. The cherry on top of this sumptuous steel sundae is its price of just $66. At that price you can afford a smaller knife for other tasks when you’re not using the SCHF9 to build your log cabin!
