Schrade Leroy Bowie knife review

Chopping away with the big SCHF45

I have one too , haven't used it much , It's 8 cr13mov steel . It makes you wonder what the designer was thinking, a large, heavy , chopper style knife with a very thin edge . Good knife but a flat grind or Saber grind would've been nice on this blade.

Many of my fellow knife buddies say how Schrade makes cheap low quality knives but from what I learned they're great startoff knives for most people who don't want to cut A Goddamn tree down with it it will last
I WOULD MUCH RECOMMEND IT 🙂

In fact Donnie , Leroy is a French name from Normandie and which mean " the king " just for saying , good video though..

People also complain that the buck 119 has a weak tip after stabbing a log and prying on it. It's not for that like you said. Also. You can educate ignorance but sadly you can't do anything about stupid

I LOVE THIS KNIFE !!!!
You beat me to it !!!
As you said time and time again “ 2 Great Minds “!!!
Really freaks me OUT !!
So Good !!
Such an awesome Guy ! Awesome Knife ! Awesome Video !
( thank you for the Hollow Grind info cause I’m still trying to figure the grinds out ).
Just Bad Ass !!❤️🤠🔪🦈🇺🇸😎

Dude that knife 🔪 is a beast. I chopped 4 inch trees 🌳 down in Kansas last year and as heavy as it is it wore my ass out swinging it!

Glad you like it. You can have mine if you want it. I love a good hollow grind, and never had a problem with one, until I got the Leroy. Delimbing a red oak branch with maybe a 1/2" thick branch at most, using snap cuts like I normally do while delimbing, I got 2 major chips in the blade. Deep ones, about half way into the edge bevel. I know red oak is some hard ass wood, but never had a problem like that before, with any other hollow grind blade, such as my Condor. The woods I frequent are full of red oaks, walnut trees, and beech trees, so hard to avoid. It's a shame, because I love the design..the TPE handles are fantastic, but 8cr13 is a poor choice for a heavy chopper. I don't even like it in a folder, so I should have known better…I blame myself for that reason. If your area is mostly pines and other soft woods, it's probably fine. Who knows..maybe I just got a lemon with a poor heat treat or something. It's not unheard of.

When I first handled mine I knew I couldn't find a better Bowie for under $100. This Bowie is amazing ! Coma here Leeeeroy you done found a home you MF !!

Wait . . . you mean dumb people blame their tools?! I paid $50 for it, so must be better than an over 1/4" CPM 3V blade with a convex grind at chopping concrete blocks.
