I just finished writing another blog post about my knife. You should check it out. I talk about why I first bought it and about some of its finer points. I also posted a few of my better pictures of the knife. I guess I’m writing this post here in the forum because I’d like some advice on it. My questions are: Is my Schrade SCHF9 survival knife any good? It seems fine, but does it live up to today’s standards? Also, what makes a good survival knife anyway? Is it the steel used in its construction? The blade edge? The strength of the knife overall? From my point of view, having a butter knife in a survival situation is better than having no knife at all, so I really should be happy with what I have. The things is, I keep seeing all the exotic and beautiful knives out there on the internet and they just seem so awesome. Are the ones with the wooden handles that cost tons of money better than the ones with the hard plastic handles? Or is that just a matter of taste? I would love to get some perspective on all of this. I sometimes get the feeling that there are some strong opinions on this subject. By the way, I believe I purchased this knife back in 2013.
I’m going to include a few of my leftover photos of my Schrade survival knife for you to take a look at. Enjoy!
