    Be warned that there are reports of the handle screws rusting. Easily addressed early on by removing them and painting to prevent rust.

    That handle looks like it'd be a bit uncomfortable for any survival-related tasks.

    Sticky rubbery grips are a problem with extended use. They tend to cause hot spots and blisters. Kraton is great for short term use when conditions are wet, but they're a negative with extended sessions.

    I just looked those up. There aren't many sources for US buyers, but they look really nice. The fact that they're medium - large H1 steel fixed blades for under $100 looks like a great value. Thanks for the heads up.

    Regarding the knife in the OP, for the same money I'd rather give up the 1095 carbon steel to gain micarta handle scales and get a Schrade F3 or F10 for about the same price if you want to stay within the brand. Better yet, one could get a US made Buck 622 Endeavor / 822 Sentry for roughly the same price. I wouldn't overlook the knives from Ontario's US made military issue or Spec Plus lines either if you're looking for a value fixed blade.

    I'm beginning to wonder if these would make good project knives since the grips come off.

    Yank the grips, file/grind the tang to a more practical shape, cord wrap or make micarta grips to fit.

    I'd like to see if the 1095 was properly heat treated before spending the time/money, though.

    Classic tests are with a file and brass rod.

    Although, it's always nice to have a Rockwell Hardness tester laying around just to have quantitative results.;)

    That last post says it all - a mass produced for the wannabe market.

    Actually, the military doesn't issue many knives at all, and certainly not in bushel baskets to all and sundry. Most issue knives are MOS related, and the few issued to combat troops - less than 10% of the forces anyway - are carefully controlled because boys will be boys.

    Check the NSN lists, plenty of Benchmades are on it, along with lots of other higher end knives. Again, tho, not many get passed out to the troops, and when they do, they sign for them. About the only edged weapon training for troops is the bayonet. I handled one maybe five times in 22 years.

    However, I carried a good 4" locking folder or fixed blade most of the time, and few of us did. The primary weapon is the M16 and there wasn't much need for anything else.

    "Military knives" is mostly BS. The military buys civilian knives for the few who need them.
