Picture yourself stranded in the backcountry with the sun beating down mercilessly on your face after a car crash throws you into the unknown. If you could pick one knife to have by your side, it should be this week’s Badass Knife of the Week: the Schrade Extreme Survival Knife.
When it comes to surviving, the less that can go wrong means the more that can go right. The Schrade Extreme Survival Knife excels in this area.
The 12.1-inch overall fixed blade is all strength with no fluff. The 1095 high carbon steel blade has a drop point, which is a great all-purpose blade style for doing essential tasks like hunting and constructing shelters.
As you would want on any survival knife, the Extreme features a full tang to give it extra strength and durability, so it won’t break when you need it most. The ergonomic Kraton handle proves its worth after long and repeated uses—meaning your hands won’t hate you at the end of the day.
A solid sheath is another thing to look for in a survival knife because a knife is worthless if you’re not carrying it on you. The Extreme’s ballistic belt sheath comes with a removable storage pouch you can stock with a few survival essentials like waterproof matches.
Although price isn’t a huge factor in the Badass Knife of the Week, it’s hard to ignore how surprisingly affordable the Schrade Extreme is compared to similar survival knives.
Schrade has made huge strides in its recent designs and the Extreme Survival Knife is a homerun, rightfully earning its title as Badass Knife of the Week.
