Any input on the Schrade 162OT Boot Knife?

Postby Fishtail Picklock » Wed Feb 08, 2017 3:00 am

I have been looking at these Chinese 7Cr17Mov stainless steel 3.8" blade "Boot Knives" They're running about $20.50 shipped to the door. I know that:

(a) The 7Cr17Mov steel holds a decent edge, but is prone to need resharpening more frequently than 1055, 1070, 1075 or 1095 steel. The upside is that the steel is tough and will take an edge quickly.

(b) The Delrin handle isn't the greatest, but it will last a long time if it isn't abused.

(c) The Sheath isn't the best but can be held in place with a good belt. (A nice sheath that would hold the knife to the calf would be a good addition).

I gleaned most of this information from customer evaluations provided by websites.

Does anyone have any additional input concerning these pieces? :?:

I don't know but for $20.50 you can't expect too much.

Well, it turned out to be a reasonable value for the dollar. All I need is an "ankle sheath" to carry it into "El Rancho de Tijuana" undetected.

I wouldn't try sneaking anything into Mexico. You might get a cavity search if they find a knife. Not the cavity a dentist would be looking for!

It came with a "Limited Lifetime Warranty" and I took an already sharp edge and put a VERY sharp edge! So far, I am pleased. I hope that I never have to use the knife for the purpose which it was designed.

I like it.
