Schrade SCHF42D Frontier Fixed 5.12" Black 1095 Plain Blade, Brown Grivory Handles, Leather Sheath
SCHF42D: Frontier Full Tang Fixed Blade
The Schrade SCHF42D Frontier features a full tang 5.12" black 1095 carbon steel drop point blade. Brown Grivory handles with lanyard hole. The SCHF42D comes with a brown genuine leather belt sheath.
We like this medium sized Griffin designed knife for its simplicity and great design as well as good quality materials. The amazing price doesn't hurt, either. The design is a standard drop point with a full flat grind. They have a nice thumb ramp on top and an exposed pommel at the end that can also come in handy. I would call this a bushcraft knife. It comes with a nice saddle leather type stitched sheath that is attractive and fully functional.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
