I received the Schrade SCHF14 Survival Fixed Blade to test out. I have a Schrade Golden Spike that I have had for around 27 years which was made by the original Schrade company, they are now being made by Taylor Brands. Not sure if it was just a name change or what but this new knife is very nice.
The knife was very sharp right out of the box but I was able to really polish up a nice edge on it with no problem. It comes with a thermoplastic/kydex sheath which is nice and holds the knife securely, it also has different carry options by changing the angle of the belt loop on the sheath. I'm more partial to leather sheaths for my knives so I made a leather sheath for this one.
The grip seemed a little sketchy to me at first when I saw a picture but I found it to be very comfortable in my hand. The knife is well built and looks like it will last a very long time.
