SPFB20FPBK: FB20FPBK Schempp Rock

People carrying six-inch-plus long fixed blades is something you don't witness daily but situations and cutting needs do arise where big blades are the best (or only) tool suited for the job at hand. The Ed Schempp Rock's blade is 6-3/4" (171mm) long designed for outdoor use, camp cutting, slicing, chopping and food preparation. Spyderco and knifemaker Ed Schempp focused attention on making this large knife lightweight and user responsive. Made from a solid billet of high- carbon, high-vanadium VG-10 steel, the skeletonized tang blade is Khukuri-shaped with at-grind and weight-reducing spine swedge. Inside the handle, the blade is skeletonized, shaving away ounces and balancing handle-to-blade weight ratio so although substantially sized, the knife balances perfectly with a curved-wrist to tip angle. The FRN handle scales are Bi-Directionally Textured that grab the hand, holding it in a solid grip when cutting forward or backward. The Rock has two lanyard holes: A blade lanyard is a smaller Spyderco Round Hole and allows a short thong though the tang keeping the hand choked up high on the handle while swinging and chopping. The back handle lanyard accommodates a longer wrist thong and is elongated is shape to accept at straps or thongs. Jimping forward of the blade lanyard hole and inside the choil keeps the blade nicely gripped even in even smaller hands. Injection molded Fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) sheath with multi-position FRN G-Clip.

Awkward pinkie comfort
Knife is very comfortable and looks good in person. Grip is contoured similarly to an endura 4 (not precisely) and is much fatter. Fills the hand with a good comfortable size. However, as a man with average hands it can be mildly uncomfortable do to the pinkie finger being pressed against the ring finger when holding. This is also true for index and middle fingers when holding in reverse grip. Otherwise, no complaints.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Awesome knife, decent sheath
I intend this to be an utility knife. Turns out pretty decent, but you got to be careful if you want to slice something that is flat and wide - the blade profile does not serve best for chopping onion! That being said, like over viewers, I am slightly disappointed by the sheath. No, as long as you really snugged the blade in, it would fall off. Problem being you can't attach your Tek-Lok to it, and the clip come with the sheath has a fixed width - it could be a problem for you.

1st disappointment from Spyderco
I own many Spyderco knives and this is the biggest disappointment from them. The blade wasn't grounded well and there are few scratches on the surface. You can tell from the light reflections on the satin blade finish that there's a very uneven patch on the blade surface near the spine. As I don't have another Schempp Rock for comparison, I would think that it's actually a flaw in the manufacturing process. It does looked like what you'd get from a cheap china blade. The blade came seal-wrapped though, but out of my so many spyderco pieces, none came seal-wrapped, which makes me suspect that this piece may have been a rejected piece. I didn't bother to have it returned as my shipping cost & hassle isn't worth it.
