I think that I may have just fallen in love with Schrade Knives all over again. While they were a dominant American knife maker many much moons ago, the quality of their imported knives has been hit and miss for a very long time. Meaning, either your knife would be awesome and one hell of a value or a paperweight that you regretted buying.
But Schrade now has new owners and with new ownership comes a new direction. Schrade now has their Alpha Class, Beta Class, and Delta class knives. I’m not going to lie; I’m really impressed with the Alpha and Beta Series. My favorite in the Beta series is the out-the-front dual action UPROAR series.
I am not a big fan of OTFs. I think their proportions are funny, and even the best Microtechs and Hogues have some blade wobble.
