Our slate of brand new Schrade Knives continues with the highly anticipated Schrade SCHF42D.
Based off the design from Brian Griffin, the SCHF42D is an update on the SCHF42. Make no mistake about it though, the SCHF42 (yes, the naming system can get confusing) is a hugely popular knife among those in the bushcrafting world. It was nearly universally acclaimed.
As with anything out there, there were a few suggestions for the knife that would make it near perfect.
The first was with the blade edge. The SCHF42 has a recurved blade, which can be a pain to sharpen, especially if you’re out in the field. Schrade listened to a lot of the feedback and made the SCHF42D a knife with a non-recurve blade. That means the 5.12-inch 1095 steel blade of the SCHF42D is nice and straight. For this reason alone, I can see countless people making the jump to this budget bushcrafting knife.
Another change on the SCHF42D is the handle. Whereas the SCHF42 has black Grivory handle scales, this iteration of the knife has a desert brown Grivory handle scales.
Here’s a look at the sheath.
