Well, a few months ago one of our subscribers contacted me and said that he found the “real” Ultimate Survival Knife and encouraged me to review the Schrade Extreme Survival knife. As I took the survival knife out of it’s sheath, my first impression was a mix of surprise and disbelief. Honestly, I just wanted to hang it from my belt, strap it on my leg and go play in the woods. I’ve been checking this knife out now for several weeks and my initial enthusiasm has not changed. So, the Schrade Extreme Survival (SCHF9) was designed for Schrade by Griffin Design and is a fixed blade knife that has a fine edge, which means there are no serrations on this blade.
The SCHF9 is one of three primary designs from the Schrade Extreme Survival line up of knives. And the intriguing, military-styled, SCHF2 which is made of a solid piece of steel, including a waterproof barrel handle that can hold a nice bit of survival gear. The blade of this Schrade Extreme Survival knife is full tang construction which means the blade steel runs the entire length of the knife, from tip to butt, and is considered the strongest knife construction technique by experts. Now 1095 is not stainless, so you’ll want to wipe the blade edge with mineral oil now and again to prevent oxydation. The entire blade is covered in a very durable, almost gun metal gray, anti reflective coating that’s designed to protect the blade from corrosion. This knife blade is a beast at a quarter inch wide… which made me not at all shy to twist and turn this survival knife while it was well sunk into logs in my bushcraft tests. You can usually tell a drop point blade because spine of the blade drops slightly toward the point. Drop point blades make for really strong blade tips and are great for multipurpose survival knife blades, like this one.
Okay… now look at the knife edge profile… See how the blade widens just before it curves up to make the tip?
I’m not sure what the intent was here… but the slight concave edge curve toward the handle seems to make carving sticks and bark skinning a little easier. And the geometry of this knife, combined with it’s mass, and the deep flat grind of the edge, seems to provide a bit more power when chopping than any of the other knives we’ve tested so far. Now of course a knife is never going to replace a hatchet or an axe… but it’s nice to know that if you only have this knife with you in the field, you can cut and split wood quite nicely. But a point like this is not going to be as good for tactical and combat functions such as piercing… which is something knives like the SOG Seal Team Elite are designed for. At the bottom of the blade steel, toward the handle, we have a concave cutout for the forefinger.
Here I am using the SOG combo fire steel and sharpening tool, and this knife to start a little blaze. The Schrade Extreme Survival knife has one TPE handle grip on each side of the knife steel. In the case of this handle, it’s both tough and resistant to wear while being very grippy, comfortable and shock absorbent. This handle’s grip is enhanced even more through the use of a raised pattern of concentric circles, which makes it very grippy, even when it’s soaked. This is a hefty and meaty handle that widens to nearly an inch and a quarter to fit nicely in my palm, and it narrow toward the front and back, to fit very naturally, as I wrap my hand around it. There are 5 notches in the blade-steel-spine side of the handle, toward the blade, that provide some additional grip for my thumb. Now on the bottom of this handle, there are 3 generous finger cutouts, that keep my hand firmly locked onto the knife. This is one knife that those with small, medium AND large hands should all find comfortable to use, even for extended periods, due to the excellent forethought that was put into it’s design.
At the butt end of the Extreme Survival, the handle flairs and curves, so you can wrap your thumb and forefinger firmly around the very bottom of the handle, for chopping and splitting.
The Schrade Extreme Survival knife is well balanced, with the center of gravity right about where my forefinger naturally wraps around the handle. Now I know that several of you guys have told me that you would never throw your survival knife.
So I can’t resist taking the Extreme Survival out to the knife range and giving it a few tosses. This knife throws quite well considering it’s size and mass, which really cause it to sink into the wood. The Schrade Extreme Survival knife sheath, has a tactical look and is made out of a good quality black nylon that is double stitched in most places… which is good. The plastic liner is designed for the knife to be placed in the sheath for right hand carry. The knife secures in the sheath, through the use of this adjustable strap, with a snap, closure system. The sheath easily straps to just about any belt, up to about 2 inches wide, and uses a flip and tuck belt strap system, to attach to your belt, without taking it off. And this pouch and sheath strap system, also give this sheath the ability to attach to a MOLLE vest or pack. This little pouch also has a loop on it’s back, to enable belt carry… which is a cool option. Being naturally curious, I wondered how much survival gear I could fit in this sheath pouch, to round out this knife, and make it an even more helpful survival system.

So, I knew I wanted a knife sharpener, fire steel and a small LED light and maybe a multi-tool. For links to all of the gear that I stuffed into this pouch, see the video description on YouTube. Owners tend to really love this knife, and go on and on about the Schrade Extreme Survival knife being a sharp, heavy duty, work horse of a knife, and usually average well over 4 out of 5 stars. Some comment on the blade edge not being perfect and some minor imperfections here and there, where the handle grip meets the blade steel. We rate the Schrade Extreme Survival knife at a very rare 5 out of 5 stars for it’s design, fit-and-finish, heavy-duty build, tough, edge holding blade, comfortable handle, versatile sheath, it’s usefulness in the field, and we were pushed over the edge by it’s crazy low ONLINE street price, of under $45.
The Schrade Extreme Survival knife is an excellent tool for camping, hunting, backpacking, bushcraft, extreme adventures, safaris, bug-out-bags and emergency kits. If you want a knife for diving or outdoor activities like canoe camping where there is a good change that your knife is going to be wet for extended periods of time… look elsewhere. Although the 1095 high carbon steel that used in the knife can be maintained in wet situations, you may want the luxury of a knife that is made of a quality stainless steel.
Or, if you really like this knife design, and the price point, check out the Schrade Extreme Survival SCHF3, since it’s very similar in design to the SCHF9 and IS made out stainless steel. If you want a survival knife with the added cutting power of serrations, you might want to check out the Schrade Extreme Survival SCHF3 or the SCHF2 which both come in fine and partially serrated versions.
If you want a more tactical or combat survival knife, check out the my reviews of the Gerber LMF II, the SOG Seal Team Elite, the Cold Steel SRK, the Schrade SCHF2, the Gerber Prodigy or the Gerber LHR.
For your convenience I’ve included links to the Schrade Extreme Survival knife and all of the other knives and gear that I’ve mentioned, throughout this review. I really like the idea of putting the survival gear in the pouch of the sheath and I was wondering if I could get the sheath separate from the knife any where.
One more thing, you should really review ka-bar usmc knife, if it can be a good survival knife that is. I recently found the Schrade extreme survival Sch2sm and was wanting if you could give me some advice on gear I could put in the handle for s mini survival kit.
David- would you recommend the schf9 or the schf10 for a bug out bag, hiking, camping, and other outdoor uses like chopping?
1 – Should I get the SCHF9 or will the CS Leatherneck Tanto be sufficient for heavy outdoor use like the SCHF9? For those of you that have been waiting; the ESEE-5 sheath from Hedgehog Leatherworks is finally here.
As with all other sheaths I've tested from Hedgehog Leatherworks- this has to be the highest quality sheaths I've seen on the market.
Functionality- such as the Rapid Release Strap (A patented system designed by Hedgehog Leatherworks). The pocket contains a length of jute twine (excellent tinder material) and a striker for the ferro rod (to save your knife). We never sell, share or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances.
The knife with molded ruber grip and knurled striking surface butt cap will be very handy for you.
Since it has a little bit higher price than other type of knife, it will be good if you buy them at Amazon. My game gliches when i create a new world.Only mods i have are Toomanyitems, Singleplayer commands, the fog key, modloader and modloader MP,Minecraft forge. There are many makes, types and styles of paintball guns available to use as a defence weapon, with costs ranging from under ?50 right up to over ?1000 for competition and tournament enthusiasts. But for a prepper the main reason for having a paintball gun is purely self defence and to ward off, would be, looters and intruders. Remember folks, these are not toys, and can do more than enough harm to make someone think twice about trying to get past you. At close range [10 – 20 mtrs] getting a direct hit anywhere on your body will cause injury and will hurt, big time. So we are talking a serious self defense, non lethal, weapon that is both very effective and LEGAL to own in the UK.
Yes a paintball gun is considered a legal weapon in the UK and you are perfectly within your rights to own one. The number one most important factor when choosing a paintball gun is Reliability – buying cheap will mean inferior parts and a chance of the gun jamming up.
Also paying top price for a top end gun can also cause problems as they will need constant tweaking and maintenance to keep their high standards of performance. There are, of course, many to choose from and like everything, it boils down to getting the best value for your money.
I think it is perfect for any UK Prepper looking for a cost effective means of giving good protection where necessary.
I smiled and just waved the knife around in my hand for a while trying to figure out how in the world Schrade was able to put together such a formidable survival knife package for such a crazy low online street price.
1095 steel is a favorite of many knife lovers because it’s not too expensive, it’s pretty tough and it holds an edge very well. Mineral oil works great because it’s cheap, easy to get and safe if you want to chop up some food with your knife. The grind is what makes a knife sharp… It’s the angle cut of the steel on both sides of the blade that meet to form the edge of the blade.

And this edge has a deep flat grind, which means the ground surface on each side of the blade is a bit deeper (or longer) than normal which makes this edge similar to one you would find on a hatchet.
This stout point design almost ensures that your tip is not going to bust even if you have to pry or dig with it. In a life and death situation, and hopefully with a backup knife on me, I would not hesitate to throw this knife if I needed to.
Many even say that they bought two of these knives for the price they would have paid for just one knife before they found the Extreme Survival. But the blade, strength, edge holding ability, tough, protective coating, design, fit and finish, and everything else for the price, is so amazing, we were compelled to give this knife 5 out of 5 stars. I was wondering if the Schrade SCHF3 was also a quarter inch thick, I was considering purchasing it but was hoping to see your review first.
And could you as well as that do a review on this knife but the sm not normal seized knife.
I wouldn’t really be getting wet so the type of metal on the schf9 would not be a problem. That being said, if you prefer a bit larger and heavier knife, and you’d like a rubberized grip, go with the SCHF-9. Like the BK2- the ESEE-5 is probably one of the most popular production survival knives on the market. You can also use it to store other items like signal mirrors, fishing gear, tinder, water purification tabs, or a Zippo lighter will even fit in there.
I've been using the Hedgehog Fire Starters for some time and honestly they out perform most on the market.
We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation.
You will know which type that good for you and get the suitable one. So many best fixed blade hiking knife that you can find, but there are not so many knife under $100. It won’t easily slip off your hand when you use it and as for the price you can get it with only $79, but if you buy it in Amazon, you will get up to 50% off. With full tang stainless steel construction and handle wrapped with 60 inches customizable paracord will make it look stylish and great for you to use.
So, by association, that means that by getting another eye tattooed onto you that you’ve got another soul window handy. I keep a box of 2000 unopened and sealed and also another box which is opened but the balls are divided into packs of 200 and resealed.
1095 steel also sharpens to an edge that is great for all around cutting, slicing and chopping. A flat grind simply means that both ground surfaces of the blade edge are flat opposed to being concave or convex.
And have you considered buying Leatherman and reviewing them because I know that you have a Leatherman wave.
Scout carry if you did not know is when you carry your knife horizontal in the center of your back. The one you can’t forget, this knife have slim thermoplastic sheath with removable belt loop so you can bring it along with you easily. All creations copyright of the creators.Minecraft is copyright Mojang AB and is not affiliated with this site.
While there are some fairly boring eye tatts getting about we’re not interested in them today. The Seal Team Elite is a tactical, combat and fighting knife first and a capable survival tool after this. Thus, the choice came down to either schrade or ka bar (thanks to all the knife reviews by David).
Hedgehog Leatherworks (after much request) decided to develop a sheath built specifically for those fans. It maintains your most important survival tool and this one has the capability to hold fire making materials (another survival priority). Prepare to get freaked out with this kooky collection.Of all the tattoo designs that you see around you, one of the most intriguing ones is the tattoo that has an eye or eyes as part of the design.
With the one directional snaps maintaining security of your blade even under heavy movement. It also allows you to wear a pistol without having a knife in the way or weigh down that side of your belt. Hedgehog Leatherworks added a nylon strip of webbing to easily access any components you have stored.
Eye tattoo design can depict the eye by itself in a simple and ordinary manner or show art that portrays the eye in various forms.
You can use the eye of humans or of other creatures as part of your tattoo design for dramatic impact.
