OKC RD6 and RD9
Purchased RD6 and RD9. Always admired OKC products before buying. Owned OKC 12" and 18" machetes, but no OKC knives. Super impressed with both knives purchased, as with machetes already owned. Really did not buy either knife for any intended purpose, but love them both. Was a little intimidated about the RD9, but find it more useful in the back yard with landscape work and wood work for the fire pit. My only complaint is that the handles are a big big, but I have gotten use to them. May still sand them down a bit. I do wish OKC would sell replacement scales. Overall, very nice knives and great value. I have no buyer remorse what so ever and would highly recommend these as well as other OKC products. Oh, one other comment, I've read about complaints about the sheath. Both the RD6 and RD9 had similar sheaths (plastic liners and dual snap closures). Funny thing, the RD6 held the knife firmly and securely with no wiggle. The RD9 sheath was loose and did wiggle; however, for what I use each for, both sheaths work perfectly. It's an oddity about the sheaths though.

The best companion
The knife is incredible but not fresh from the box. When I went out to buy a new knife I didn't even think about this I was more interested in the Esee 5+6 but I couldn't decide between the two, then I found this as a suggested knife and on a whim I made the purchase with it having the best of both knives. When it arrived the handle was very bulky and angular. The edge wasn't as sharp as I would have liked but it was adequate enough to feather stick with and shave arm hair (just about). With the knife not being to my liking I set about adapting it to suit me. Firstly I ground the edge to a nice sharp convex edge (which I believe suits the knife better), I then moulded the handle to fit my hand, giving it curves and long steeping round edges which fitted my hands better and removed any hot spots. With the modifications done this knife became a whole new beast! It's slicing capability became much more superior as the convex helped the thicker blade, allowing it to slice and cut like a knife much thinner than this one. The handle that I moulded to suit me made the blade feel less thick and more comfortable allowing me to use it all day and not have to rest my hand. The knifes finish from the box is sloppy, there's machine marks on the steel and the flat grind isn't fully finished on one side, the handle is very grippy and has a nice texture and makes you want to hold the knife. If you buy this knife (which I recommend) I wouldn't expect to get the perfect knife, I would say to expect a blank canvas, a blank canvas that you can use and change to make something that will fit you and suit you. The knifes thickness isn't an issue it just makes the beast indestructible. I would trust this knife with my life in any situation especially with the amount of abuse I give the knife, I would recommend the steel to its become one of my top five steels.

Outstanding large combat/woodland knife
I bought this knife to have a large, virtually indestructible utilitarian knife for camping/hunting. It meets or exceeds all my expectations. Even though the description was accurate, I was still a bit surprised to get such a big, thick piece of 5160 spring steel so finely balanced. VERY happy with it. The only downside is the sheath. It is a little low rent and obvious that it is universal for more than one blade length. I replaced it with a made-to-fit Kydex. Perfect.
