The Schf9 is on tough blade, the 1095HC steel is great, and 1/4in. thick spine makes batoning a breeze, and the 15.9oz. makes it a good chopper. My only two complaints are that the handle is too thick and is not comfort for extended cutting casks and the sheath is low quality. Overall $40 is a great price and this thing is indestructible so I can overlook the thick handle and low quality sheath.
