When Schrade came out with the SCHF1 knives, they were a little too long, and had a partially serrated blade (which is difficult to sharpen, and creates a weak point).
Those problems were addressed with this new knife, the SCHF1SM. The blade is the perfect length, and the serrations are gone.
But, they also made the handle shorter, and thinner. This means that you can stuff fewer items into the handle storage.
If you're listening, Schrade, make one of these knives with the original (SCHF1)handle size, small (SCHF1SM) blade length, and no serrations, and you will have a serious winner. Also, omit the screwdriver kit to keep costs lower (especially the magnet in the end cap) and include a compass inside the end cap.
It's a nice screwdriver kit, but nobody is going to be carrying a knife that big anywhere they would frequently encounter nuts and bolts. That's what multi tools are for. Fill the handle with matches, fishooks, snare wire, sinkers, etc., classic survival knife contents.
As other reviewers have stated, the Schrade SCHF1SM is a copy of the Chris Reeves project 1 knife. I really liked the concept of a one piece machined knife. Based on many reviews the quality seemed solid so I took the plunge and purchased this knife, and I've very glad I did. It more than meets my expectations.
The knife was delivered with an already sharp edge, unlike a few other model knives I've purchased in the past. The sheath is also well made. I don't quite understand why Shrade choose to put a small screwdriver set in the handle, but whatever. I had planned on outfitting my own survival kit anyway. One thing I found of interest is that the pommel end is actually a strong magnet (appears to be used to help hold the screwdriver kit in place), which I've never seen on any other knife.
My intended use for this knife is for carrying while on day or overnight hikes in parks and trails in my area. In case I were to get lost or hurt and couldn't get myself back, I'd need a few basics to help survive until searchers arrived.Read more ›
Hollow handle knives are notorious for being poorly made since the blade and the handle are usually pieced together, which creates an obvious weakness in the design. Schrade is using a solid piece of 1070 high carbon tool steel to mill out a one-piece workhorse that should conquer most or all of your needs. Some key features: the knife is well balanced, the buttcap is threaded onto the hollow handle and seals with an "O" ring, the blade design retains full thickness throughout most of its length reducing the likelihood of the blade snapping during heavy chopping or moderate prying (1070 has good resilience), the buttcap can be used for moderate hammering or to inflict blunt force trauma, the knurled handle provides a sure grip without being too prickly in the hand (although in heavy use I'd suggest wearing gloves). Keep in mind that this is an all-metal knife, so the handle temperature will reflect the ambient temperature - cold in cold weather, hot in hot weather. Since this is not a stainless steel some extra care will be required.
The ballistic nylon sheath has a plastic liner to help keep the sharp blade from piercing the unit (or you). The sheath has a roomy front pocket for extra storage, a very adjustable belt loop, and a leg tie-down cord. The snap closure to hold the knife in the sheath seems adequate but is certainly not impressive.
The hollow handle comes pre-loaded with a tool kit.Read more ›
about only discernable difference is Reeve used a harder more fragile A2 steel while the Schrade is tough 1070 high carbon, which while less of an edge holder is probably better for abusive survival chores, with much higher shock and breakage resistance....
paint on blade/handle is relatively soft but can easily be repainted...while spear point in profile, it has a full belly and excellent edge geometry, which makes this a great general purpose knife a full 0.200" thick at ricasso and spine....a little short for heaviest chopping but that's what belt axes are for, "bushcraft" fans be hanged.....
pretty much perfection, inluding lacking mediocre serrations right where a blade doesn't need them which other models of this knife feature, and to be fair, those serrations also dupe the Reeve style.....about the only downside to entire package is that the 6" knife uses the same sheath as the larger version, which is very much overkill....
but considering the size/heft/thickness/robustness of the 6" model, i am glad i didn't buy the larger version, and this is coming from a guy who carries 7" Randalls....best $50 knife i ever bought, and would not have complained had they instead been $100....

I got this as more of a fixed blade utility knife but decided to put it to the test. So far it keeps its edge and takes all of the abuse I can put it through. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Mark A. Brown

Mine came with different markings, recessed Schrade word/logo. I like the one piece upper and use it as a survival spear blade. Great feel and finish. I wrapped my own handle. Read morePublished 2 months ago by AOI I.
