Schrade SC50B Auto Knife

The Schrade SC50B Push Button Automatic Knife boasts a drop point blade that qualifies as Cali-Legal because it measures in at 1.875″.  This auto conversion snaps out extremely fast and lock up is solid.  This is the kind of auto that fits into any pocket or bag.  A great every day utility knife, there are several things that make this knife an excellent carry.

The 440 stainless steel drop point blade gets every cutting job done.  There isn’t much I run into that needs a bigger blade.  Sure, when I am going into the woods or great outdoors, I carry a larger fixed blade knife with me.  But this auto knife is perfect for daily cutting.  The blade has some jimping on the spine to give your thumb extra control on precision cutting tasks.

The handle is black anodized 6061 T6 aluminum.  The top scale features a grip tape insert that adds some serious gripping power to the knife.  There is a very shallow elongated finger groove followed by a somewhat deeper, longer curve.  The first curve fits my forefinger and my next two fingers sit comfortably in the longer curve.  My pinkie sits on the butt of the handle in just the right spot. It has a lanyard hole and the knife actually comes with a small paracord lanyard.  The back scale has three sweeping grooves across the face which are matched by just two grooves on the front face.  These grooves give you even more grip spots.

The very best things about this knife are the size, speed and durability.  The size means I can pocket carry without being too obtrusive.  And at barely over two ounces and 3.25″ closed, it sits nice and easy in my pocket.  It isn’t a Pocket Real Estate® hog. The speed means I can get the blade out fast when I need it.  Just a quick press on the button and the blade is out.  And the durability means it is going to withstand some serious abuse.  I work hard and expect my knives to work hard right alongside me.  When I need to make a cut, I go for the knife on hand.  And this auto is certain to be on hand for a long time to come.  Get yours for just $36 on our website while supplies last.
