From what I've seen of the ones I've bought quality is decent to very good. Even got a Pal in 440C!

The desert iron wood series are gorgeous! I never carry it btw. :)
My retirement shall consist of carbon steel, cheese, and crackers.

I have yet to try a China Schrade.

Do they all take a good edge? The reason I ask is because I had a China Remington that had one blade that WOULD NOT SLICE paper. And I have a China Buck trapper that has one excellent blade and one so-so.

I've only had one Rough Rider out of a dozen or more that had a less than wicked blade.

I'm no knife expert but I have a USA made schrade that the fit and finish is like perfect, easy to sharp and holds a edge for quite some time. I haven't tried a China made schrade but from what I hear they are not all that good :( . There is a few others I want to try before the imperial schrade

I have used one every day for three years no complaints.As far as cutting pape I would not know for cutting poly pipe and other things on the farm no worries.For the price they are a reasonable knife and if it lost cheap to replace.
The reason you buy knives made in China is the price .
Politicians should be like a good pocket knife ." Sharp and useful "

I've bought two China Schrade's and give them both away one was a large Sod Buster and the guy I give it to works 28 days on and two weeks off in the oil patch and used it every day and wore it out in three years--he was just home for Thanksgiving & I give him my Kershaw flip knife to replace it

I bought around 10 knives to give away this Christmas, to family and friends at work. This schrade is for my brother in law, who loves to sail. It's a monster and I'm sure it will cut as much rope as is thrown at it, and undue just a many knots. The blade opens and closes with authority, and the spike locks, then snaps like an alligator.

I have the Chinese Imperial Small Trapper and Congress, and they're all right. the finish and construction seems better than the late Imperial Ireland shell-handled knives.

Some of the blade final bevels are kind of sloppy changing angle and depth down the length of the blade, I've been experimenting with various new bevel angles on them, resetting on a diamond stone, then finishing up on Arkansas and lapping film. Also the Trapper had both blades hitting the spring at the center pin. ::facepalm:: I took them back a little, maybe 1/64" when I was putting on a new bevel, and that seems to have fixed it. Kicker seems long enough.

The steel seems okay. It is stainless, and I've gotten them up to easily shaving-sharp. The trapper has seen use as an impromptu steak knife, and was still hair shaving afterwards, even with some strikes and pressure on the plate the butcher-knife thin edge I put on it didn't roll.

If anything they're good for me to experiment and practice on. The "celluloid" is _real pretty_ on 'em too, and seems to be pretty hard wearing.

I have a few real spotty made in the USA Schrades from 90s that make me wonder what their QC was doing to let them out of the factory ::uc:: - and some real good ones. Total toss up.

Since I last posted I grabbed this at an Academy store. It gets sharp enough.

As of yet I don't do any angles. I just use ceramic and leather. Of course I haven't had anything truly dull in quite some time.
