An AK beast
I am the wrong person to write this review because I like my Ontario RD and NS knives so much. They just feel right to me. I describe them to friends as the AK47 of knives: heavy, clunky, primitive, raw, reliable, effective. Just plain usable and affordable. I simply enjoy looking at them and handling them. The blade shape with the curve is more interesting than effective. I use this knife as an all purpose survival knife - no baton work, because I do own a hatchet, a maul, and an axe.. I do recommend a custom kydex sheath, and possibly replacement G10 scales available elsewhere. This knife gets the best possible rating from me, but you better like something substantial if you are looking to get one.
