Description
SCHF2SM: Extreme Survival Special Forces
Schrade
 
The Schrade Extreme Survival Special Forces knife is 10.3" overall, made from one solid piece of SAE-1070 high carbon steel with a dark grey finish. Originally pioneered by Chris Reeve, the one-piece knife design pairs strength and durability throughout the entire length of the knife with a hollow handle for small item storage. It's perfect for a fire starter, sharpener, or small survival kit but it comes from Schrade with a bit driver with six assorted screwdriver bits. The knife comes complete with a black nylon belt sheath and leg tie.

Bit driver set for survival?
I don't know about everyone else, but, if I ever find myself in a 'survival' situation, a bit driver set will not be very high on my priority list. My wish is for Schrade to remove it and lower the price.

Hard worker
I sharpened this as soon as I got it. As I do with all knives when bought brand new. I then put a small diamond stone and a fire rod in the small pocket of the sheath. I have used this thing on several short hiking trips and it was worked hard and has held and edge. I recently took it to the bush in Honduras, where it was abused. It was in the ocean, mangrove swamps, sand and jungle. I used it to cut wood, sugar cane and whacked dozens of coconut open with it. I know how to use a stone, and maintaining a razor edge was very easy. It mad quick work of everything put in front of it. I will say that I removed the screw driver set in the handle and replaced it with cotton balls soaked in Vaseline and wrapped in foil. This can in handy starting fires in the wet jungle, where finding dry tinder is near impossible. Great knife for working, I have dozens of knives from Randall number 1and Tops knives on down, to Barlow and Old timers. This knife is my go to knife in rough terrain and hard abuse. NOTE: I have not used it for heavy prying work yet, just on wood and coconuts. But tip seems sturdy when used Boise D' arc wood. Sheath will have to be replaced someday, the fabric is weak points from the rough environments I work in.

Excellent but required proper care
This knife is a marvel in this price range. The Chris Reeves pioneered design used here is brought to us for less than $70 at worst, versus his $300 a $1500 dollar handmade versions. Having held both in my hands, realize that most of the custom versions price is the intense hands on labor and much extra crispness in details. The toughness and usability is right up there though, and that is what matters most when you will actually need the Schrade. One thing average knife users today are no longer used to, due to the preponderance of quality stainless steels used in making so many knives today, is having to care for the higher carbon based blade with each use. It should always be put away clean and covered in an extremely light coating of oil. I use food grade oil, as it can be left on without harm if using the knife to prepare meals, and historically has always been up to the task (light mineral oil). I would treat the whole knife, including the hollow handle, then dry it mostly off to where it can barely be felt. It should not end up sticky or slippery when done correctly (sushi chefs use this, and if you think of how they handle those blades oiling does not make them slippery!). The O-Ring protecting the hollow butt cap, and the threads on the cap and inside the knife, need to be very lightly lubricated with silicone grease made for rubber gaskets. This, along with tightening the cap down as far as it will go, will 100% keep moisture out. The O-ring should be replaced immediately if it gets nicked or stretched out, as well as every year in any case. They are like 25c for 4 at the hardware plumbing supply and easily worth it (keep a spare in the butt). I really like the toolkit that comes in the hollow handle, but if you are going to use the Schrade as a camping type blade it is not the best use of that space. For survival try to pick the minimum smallest items to fish with, spark a fire and hold it, a compass, and exacto sized blades for precision work or arrow heads (many uses due to their various design and slotted design. If you have the materials to make a fire, shelter, get food and get your bearings then you are truly carrying a survival knife.
