We just got a shipment of the Hale fixed blade knife from Fodale Knives. This is a new brand to BladeOps and we are really excited about the knives that Cody is producing over at Fodale Knives.
The Hale boasts a D2 blade with a variety of finishes available including stonewash, acid stonewash, or beadblasted. The handle scales are G10 and also come in a variety of colors including classic black, coyote brown (as pictured above) or even a unique jade green color which I think is pretty fantastic because you don’t see it often on knives.
The Hale is specifically designed as an all purpose survival knife that can get serious heavy work don. The D2 blade is a whopping .187″ thick which makes it eligible for batoning when you need to cut through really thick wood. It has a 13 degree bevel and a razor sharp edge.
The handle is attached to the full tang blade with six hardened screws. You can rest assured that the scales aren’t going anywhere without the rest of the knife. I especially like the horizontal grooves on the handle. These give your hand plenty of purchase for a nice, secure grip and they are nicely machined so they feel smooth and comfortable even during long cutting sessions.
The knife comes with a fantastic Kydex sheath that also has a pair of IWB loops so you can attach it to your belt or bag nearly any way you want to.
As you can see, the sheath is perfect for tactical use as well as hunting, camping or especially for your survival bag. (Like how I took that shot of the sheath with the Jade Green handle so you could see how cool that color is?)
If you are looking for a great all around survival knife, the Hale will definitely get the job done. Find it on our website Fodale Hale Knife
