Home run for Schrade
As a general rule, I avoid cheap "survival" knives with Rambo-like hollow handles since they tend to fall apart quickly, but this knife is a major exception to that rule. Being a single solid piece of steel, it can withstand very rough treatment while still holding a useable edge. The tools in the handle can be removed if you want to store other things like flint, tinder, fishing line, and so on. However, the sheath also has a removable pouch that could hold extras as well. 1070 steel does not hold the kind of edge 1095 can hold, but the extra toughness and durability of 1070 means it can take a lot more abuse or "unofficial" use (digging, hammering, prying) in a survival situation. It also sharpens up easily and is slightly more rust resistant. This is a no-frills heavy duty survival tool that can compete with knives twice the price. All of the knives in this series are bargains. Schrade has once again hit it out of the park!

Tough Blade
I cannot fault this knife ---- My standard brutal blade test matched hardness/damage-resistance with that of AUS8. {My test is to lay a small Cr-V screwdriver's shaft flat on tabletop, then 'whack' the knife edge down fairly hard. and study the depth of 'ding' in cutting edge, very close to serration (biased near handle end)}. It matched CRKT Anubis, and did heaps better than CRKT Lake 111 & CRKT Laredo/Bandera, but not as resistant to abuse as SOG Escape FF25. Not scientific; merely rule-of-thumb, but a comparison at least!!! Blade is quite stiff with little available flex. (4.5mm thick) Waterproofing ---- I lubed up threads w/ NiteCore NG7 silicone grease for flashlights/battery torches. Under water, & no water penetrates to ``bit's`` cache in handle. BUT BUT BUT, for a survival knife, what the heck is with screwdriver bits stored in there???? (great! you are given everything in the world - Torx/Philips/Slotted/Allen, & a T-Bar for extra leverage). If I am in the bush, I want a compass, a fire starting option, perhaps fishhooks & line, perhaps suture needle w/ stitches, some 'bandaids'/sticking plasters, water purification options, an EPIRB [he he he]. Will I get my kaput car going again with included screwdriver bits? I doubt it!! The supplied free sheath satisfies!!! You get the works --- compartments, carry options galore, and a most very welcome full-length plastic liner/sleeve which is riveted in place. Inside there, blade will never wear nylon sheath. I have small hands, yet the diameter of the handle is still really good for me. The knurling is really aggressive [read abrasive], & even with my ``spoiled`` office hands, I'd rather this than too smooth. The only part of the handle which I don't like is ``taper`` leading to the quillons. Maybe some will find it comfortable but not me. This knife WILL NOT CHOP very well!! I went with this SCHF1 to get the bigger "handle cavity" Verses the SCHF1sm, but I feel its blade is longer than what's necessary. This doesn't matter and I am happy with this Schrade knife
