The Schrade Extreme Survival Fixed Blade is a strong survival knife, for a good price. A no-nonsense knife, for no-nonsense tasks. The blade is made from stainless AUS10 steel. This means that, apart from sharpening it occasionally, you hardly need to think about maintenance. The fact that Schrade can offer a comparable knife at such an attractive price is seriously impressive. A complete survival knife, for a very good price.
