There are so many knives on the market today and each has its own set of pro's and cons.
I could sit in a room full of knives for a month and never review all of them.
Luckily, I know people like my friend Javan, who are willing to help out!
He recently got a new Schrade and wanted to share his thoughts on it:
My Schrade SCHA4BG came sharp enough out of the box to slice paper.
The spring assisted opening as well as the safety for it never failed.
I really like how there is a thumb groove on the back of the blade itself to allow for more leverage and control.
The weight and size are great and well balanced. Here are my two reasons why I gave it a 4 out of 5: 1.
The thumb knob on the blade seems to take a little bit too much pressure to open the knife.
I think it’s because you have to place your thumb at a weird angle and could be fixed if the knob isn’t as close to the handle of the knife when the blade is closed. 2. Maybe I have fat fingers or a big hand, but it’s slightly uncomfortable when tightly gripping the handle of the knife.
A few more centimeters added on or a bit less of a curve where the pinkie goes would be perfect. Again, those two things are minor. I would still highly recommend this knife.
