    Say Heah David, Just yesterday, I bought a Vintage Bianchi Hollow Handle Knife. I do have a few Hollow Handles Knives that I would trust my life on everyone of them except that $10.00 General Hollow Handle Knife, My new Hollow Handle that fits right at home in my Hollow Handle Stable is my Bianchi Hollow Handle that was made before the Nighthawk, But they did copy it's design and it's put together solid that Fighter Pilots used to survive. Yeah, it's all brass with a 6" 440c. Blade that has a serrated Sledge, I guess to cut yourself out of the safety belts and cockpit, a simple awesomeness of a Knife design, a deadly looking spear point and a Zero Grind Saber. It just feels great in your hand, Infact as you pick it up, You can tell.

    Why bits in the handle? I guess you don't come across bits in the wild.

    I know this is a old review but thanks for your time and work.
    I wonder what they were thinking with the tools in the handle.
    They should of put a ferro rod in it or something useful.

    Great vid commentary.  I agree about the screwdriver  know idea what they are thinking.  I do have a question though.  It looks like a saber grind on the blade but I know schrade is a fan of hollow grinds so could you tell me if its hollow or flat? thanks

    This look promising but schrade have an bad reputation. The hollowhandle is usually bad thing. ;  That pommel I can't help but compare it to the Ontario survival knife.

    This isn't a knife, it's a work of art! Precision milled from a drop-forged billet of 1070 steel, beautiful, sharp, indestructible, functional. A copy of the Chris Reeve series of hollow-handled knives that cost 8 times more, and to my eye every bit as nicely made. I am buying the big brother SCHF2 with clip blade. They will last a lifetime.

    Great vid on a great knife. One small point: I believe the butt cap is aluminum. I ordered this knife, but have not received it yet, so I am not sure. Thanks!

    Not as brittle as 1095? Seriously?  Do you know anything at all about steel.  1070 isn't even as good as 1055.

    Personally I would pack the handle with lifeboat matches and a striker, wrap as much 30lb Spyderwire as possible around the handle with a Altoids tin containing a decent kit in the sheath pouch.

    No need for the striker in the carried kit. Strike the matches on the handle of the knife or any rough surface available.

    Okay. Perhaps this will put an end to the questions. First there was the Jimmy Lyle designed knife for the John Rambo films. It had a hollow handle and the guard ended on each side in a phillips tip and flat tip. The pommel held a fairly useless compass inside. The knife was designed for survival in any environment including urban areas.

    Then the Buckmaster came out. A better design knife wise because the exterior pouches could hold a compass (mine came with one) and other tools (I always kept a swiss army knife in the other pouch on my 184). There was also a sharpening stone in the sheath. This knife inspired the current designs of the M9 bayonet (blade style, sheath, pouches, sharpener).

    Now we have the Schrade knife. Machined from one piece of steel. So much better than the other two (bolted into the handle). It comes with it's own screw driver set because it's more likely you will need it in urban settings. Going into the woods? It comes out!

    Just subscribed. Been looking for a channel like this forever! I've been really looking into getting a new survival knife. What would you recommend as the best for beginner survivalists? (Most expensive I'm looking is about 110$)

    Screwdrivers are the points I mostly use from my swiss army knife.
    Wich scenario  is more likely :
    a)  you crash-land on deserted jungle island 
    b) you need to fix a screw ?

    I've pondered this multi-bit kit thats included and the only thing i can think of is perhaps a sort of field kit for screws on various types of hunting type rifles or grips on certain types of pistols. I would love to hear ideas anybody else has.

    Anyone know if the steel in this blade is stainless or not?
