Schrade Neck Knife initial review6 March 2019Very well-built knife. Very solid, strong and sharp out of the box. Quite heavy for a neck knife but by no means intrusive. Much of the weight lies in the fairly thick scales. Good fit between scales and full tang blade. Good thumb-grip ahead of the handle for close work and for fore-finger safety retention in a heavy forward stab. The entire rig is also quite long, so some people might find it shows under light clothing, but putting new cord on or changing its hanging length will find the sweet spot to hang it dead forward on the chest, or to do what I have and to lengthen the cord and sling it under one arm where it doesn't show at all. I carry two pieces of dedicated paracord so I can choose which way I want to hang it depending on clothing and it takes mere seconds to change over and tie a fishermans knot to secure the ends together. Sheath is simple and lightweight and initially seems a bit flimsy but it is strong and really secure and comfortably smooth and rattle-free against bare skin under a shirt, against chest or underarm. Plenty of other lashing options provided by other eyelets. I sanded the corner edges of the scales very lightly - just two or three strokes - to smooth them off so as to be more comfortable to the grip, as well as the opening to the sheath to give smoother entry to the latching position. I'd say this knife is bomb-proof and well-fit for intended purpose as an EDC, emergency secondary knife, or even a routine secondary such when a much larger knife like my usual a 20cm or larger Bowie etc, is carried on a sheath and might be less appropriate for a task - such as eating (great to slice up a T-bone!), reducing public exposure, etc. The back of the blade could be used to strike a fire-steel, but it would erode the black finish and I hate using knives for that purpose and usually use the small blade they are supplied with. Hope this assists some potential buyers.
