SCHF17: F17 Tactical Drop Point Tanto Fixed Blade
This Schrade F17 tactical drop point tanto fixed blade features a powder coated 6.3" 8Cr13MoV high carbon stainless steel full-tang blade and textured TPE handle scales. The blade features what Schrade calls a blood groove but really it's a convenient hole in the blade that doesn't compromise strength but allows for you to choke up and do fine detail work with this blade. The thermoplastic sheath is a friction fit model that is very sturdy and secures the knife well but allows for a quick, easy draw from multiple angles on the belt. We here at knifecenter.com find this to be a extremely heavy-duty, well-made knife at a great price!

Cons: Handle Material

This Is by far my favorite knife, I would have paid twice the price with out question. It holds well in the Sheath, has a smooth draw, giving the retention strength of the sheath. The blade feels light in the palm even though it is a heavy chunk of steel, it has really good balance and can be used as a multi role tool great all around blade.
