What I Like About This Product:

This little knife came very sharp right out of the box and with my normal touch-up on my ceramic stone, it is extremely sharp. Even though it is a small knife it feels very good in your hand and after some normal use, I had no hot spots develop.  While this knife is not advertised as a neck knife, it would work great that way too. While some people might say it is a little too heavy to wear it around your neck, it works fine that way for me. The thermoplastic sheath that comes with this knife is really quite good, the knife snaps in very secure and it will protect the knife well.  It can be carried either left or right-handed and that can be adjusted by two Phillips head screws on the belt attachment. It can also be worn either vertical or horizontal belt carry as well.  I tried it fastened to my pack using ties or Velcro, that worked well too. 

What I Would Change About This Product:

There is not much wrong with this knife, it works well for me.  If I had to be knit- picky, I would say the sheath holds the knife almost too well, it takes some effort to get it out of the sheath.  But that is really not a bad problem to have.

Final Remarks:

The Schrade SCHF57 Fixed Blade Knife is a good little knife. It will work out great as an EDC knife and it can be carried in many different ways.  As mentioned it is very sharp and has many different uses.  Some people have ordered the optional Ferro rod and turned it into a small survival knife, that might be a good option too.  All and all this is a nice EDC knife, I like carrying this in the horizontal carry position or as a neck knife.  If you like smaller fixed blade knives, this might be a good one for you.  I really like this knife and do recommend it.
