I have this knife and a few Moras. Very different knives.

This is much heavier and clunkier than Moras. I use this one to baton those big, knotted, quarter-round chunks of firewood that they sell at our local campgrounds (more effective than a hatchet for that use case). The blade is much longer than a Mora and can baton those chunks better since it's longer than the wood diameter.

Moras are much smaller, lighter, and controllable, and better for making tinder/kindling. More comfortable as a belt knife. That said, I've made tinder/kindling with the Schrade and it'll do it well enough.

Also, previous poster is right about the black finish coming off easily. Mine looks really rough from batoning and sharpening.

Yeah, but it isn't really just because it's made in china. Machetes and axes, things that will take a LOT of abuse are usually something like 1055 HC steel. 1095 is for something to hold an edge well, to slice but not have push-cut abuse on it. 1055 will take being whacked all day long and still not break, very tough, but won't hold an edge as well. 1095 can be made tough and still hold an edge, but the heat treat on it has to be more precise. Really easy to have a bad day at the factory and make a batch that holds an edge well but is too brittle to take a beating. I agree with your advice of beating it if that is how you intend to use it, have it break if it will break, but if it doesn't you'll have confidence in it. But if you must have a knife that can take being batonned daily, get a knife with lower carbon steel. Just keep that sharpening steel/stone close by for a touch up.
Schrades are all made in China now, not even Taiwan. The quality of steel is hit and miss. Bad steel is covered under warranty and they ship out replacements. They cannot match up to Kabar, Buck or Esee in quality. Its a low budget knife that will get the job done if you don't expect too much from it. If you get one then stress test it. baton with it a few times. It should break pretty quickly if the steel is. bad. If it passes then you got one that should last you for years

Great Knife at a great price. Even at regular price, you are getting more than what you pay for.

It's very sexy, and not bad steel for the price, but the powder coat won't last if you use this knife at all. It will go from sexy to ugly after some normal use. For ugly knife lovers it's a win-win.

Really ? You don't say ? I thought schrade was bought by taylor brands, then bought by battenfeld technologies, then was bought out by American Outdoor brands. All of these companies from schrade to AOB are founded and headquartered in the United States. Connecticut for Imperial Schrade, Tennessee for Taylor Brands, and Missouri for both Battenfeld technologies and American Outdoor Brands. But if you say these are Chinese companies, I dunno about that, they seem American to me, but that's just me, I could be wrong.

Just as a FYI, American outdoor brands was spun off from Smith and wesson holdings. I think AOB owns Imperial Schrade from buying Taylor brands. So yes, was Smith and Wesson, but now AOB is a completely separate entity not S&W anymore. At least that is how I understand it, but I've been wrong plenty of times before.

Yeah this is another 'you get what you pay for' item. All of these cheap knives are throwaway junk.
