TacticalFallkniven A1BoricuapreppersSeptember 27, 2016KnivesModel A1 is a semi-large all-purpose knife for heavy duty use. The powerful blade is made of extremely hard yet tough laminated VG10 steel and will withstand the stress of hard use. The knife is superb to chop with, but also works very well with daily tasks, thanks to the ergonomic grip. The full tang goes entirely through the handle, so you can strike the end of it without breaking the grip. The sturdy black leather sheath allows you to fasten the knife on your belt or your pack – even upside down. Model A1 is a water repelling concept which works just as well in extreme cold as in stifling heat. A1 Black Coating If there are moments when you wish to avoid reflections from your blade, then the black CeraCoat 8H A1 is the option for you. This extremely tough surface will also protect the blade from corrosion. Cera-Coat is a hard coating that consists of Teflon and ceramics. We apply it as a result of a demand, particularly from military users – glossy blades and objects are usually not very popular among these users. However, one should be aware that it is an applied finish, much like paint on a car, and that physical abrasion finally will make the coating to leave from the blade surface. Attaching a black surface on a rust resistant, perfectly smooth blade so that it sticks for time and eternity is all impossible. We have tested some extremely hard coatings, but they proved to be 100 times as costly and made it impossible to hand sharpen the knife.

Although I have like 3 small and medium folding knives and one tactical knife from Cold Steel, but I wanted to have a survival knife to use more for the heavy duty workload of survival and not for defense. The problem was that I did not have $ 100 or more to spend on a knife without having to give a good explanation to my wife who is always watching me with eagle eyes to see how much I spend on our Prepper stuff (who has a wife like mine..lol!!), but I found this Schrade F9 knife for less than $ 40 and I do not regret the purchase at all. I was hoping for a Kydex sheath, instead it came with a nylon one with cheap seams, but again for the price, is more than good, and I will be working with a very strong knife and not with one of those “butter knife” that we have because we want to be very cheap in the equipment that we are buying. I have learn my lesson that when I’m too cheap, I’m buying crap most of the time. The Schrade F9 knife is made of High Carbon 1095 steel. It has 1/4 “thick and almost 6” long knife. It has a good grip and weighs almost 16 ounces. It is a knife made for heavy duty work and then cuts the onions and vegetables like butter. Boricua Preppers recommends this beautiful knife for those Preppers with a reduced budget. A high quality knife for a reasonable price. B.P.
