Description
SPFB20FPBK: FB20FPBK Schempp Rock
Spyderco

People carrying six-inch-plus long fixed blades is something you don't witness daily but situations and cutting needs do arise where big blades are the best (or only) tool suited for the job at hand. The Ed Schempp Rock's blade is 6-3/4" (171mm) long designed for outdoor use, camp cutting, slicing, chopping and food preparation. Spyderco and knifemaker Ed Schempp focused attention on making this large knife lightweight and user responsive. Made from a solid billet of high- carbon, high-vanadium VG-10 steel, the skeletonized tang blade is Khukuri-shaped with at-grind and weight-reducing spine swedge. Inside the handle, the blade is skeletonized, shaving away ounces and balancing handle-to-blade weight ratio so although substantially sized, the knife balances perfectly with a curved-wrist to tip angle. The FRN handle scales are Bi-Directionally Textured that grab the hand, holding it in a solid grip when cutting forward or backward. The Rock has two lanyard holes: A blade lanyard is a smaller Spyderco Round Hole and allows a short thong though the tang keeping the hand choked up high on the handle while swinging and chopping. The back handle lanyard accommodates a longer wrist thong and is elongated is shape to accept at straps or thongs. Jimping forward of the blade lanyard hole and inside the choil keeps the blade nicely gripped even in even smaller hands. Injection molded Fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) sheath with multi-position FRN G-Clip.

Cons: None
Awesome knife
This is light as a feather and slices well. Not the best copper because of the weight but regardless, I would take this anywhere.

Cons: None
Floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.
great all round knife, weighs nothing, but can still do just as much as other knives and more. I would recommend it to anyone.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
More a Bolo Fighter than a camp knife
Razor sharp, perfect finish, very easy and fast to handle, very good self defense blade in urban CQB situations, would use it primarily for slash an back cutting, but also useable for stabbing, not suitable in reverse grip. Sheath is out of the box not Tek Lok/Molle Lok compatible, drilling one or two holes will solve this problem, the provided G-Clip is crap. Secure blade retention in the sheath, easy and fast deployment. Dont like FRN handle scales, but these are very grippy and give you the feeling of quality and look fine. Geometry of the grip is perfect for mid to large sized hands. The knife is slim enough for concealed carry on your 12 or 5 o'clock position although its a mid to big sized fixed blade. Love this knife, many thanks to Knifecenter for the 20% sale !
