Built like a Tank!
Very heavy and durable. Not suited for combat due to its slowness but for camping and utility, it works wonders. This knife will most likely out last you since it's built thick and strong. Blade came in perfect condition and was sharpened. The sheath isn't the best but it works well enough.

Great bang for the Buck
Yeah the sheath is semi crappy ( retainer strap failed in 5 minutes easy fix) no it is not that sharp out of the box. However do you want a knife this big razor sharp ?? Really ?? I mean this will be used to split firewood , hack weeds , kill snakes , hammer tent poles and you get to use the famous Dundee line " Thats not a knife .. thats a knife" If you dont need to cut something you can beat it to pieces. Look at what other blades this size and quality cost,,,, this is a bargain. Anvil tough and fairly easy to sharpen.

Great product and sharp as hell out of the package. Figured we would test it out and we stuck it through the driver door of a honda accord rice rocket. No problems there, maybe the dude will quit trying to drift in the neighborhood. Bitchen blade guys... Thanks a grip knife center.

beautifully practical
I have carried my SP-10 into the wilds for over ten years. I have used it for everything from cutting down a tree to filleting a fish. I have never had to do more than touch up the edge to maintain a razor sharp edge (you could shave with this knife). It is a bit heavy for an ultralight camper but if you want one knife you can bet your life on, this is it. Very much worth the price.

Big, Sharp and Full of Possibilities!
I took a gamble-I admit to being a knife snob, ha ha! I have some awesome and expensive bowies-Randall, AG Russell, high end Cold Steel, etc. This blade shaved my pretty tough hair on my arm out of the box. The heft is right, it is blade-heavy-just right for close range throwing at a regular snake or a two-legged one, in emergency only I don't believe normally in throwing away my weapon, ha ha ha! I can see some serious utility in it, besides the obvious advantages in a fight. Not too expensive to be marred up in a time of need, but incredibly solid! I gave it some Bending, Flexing, Tip stabbing into wood trials and it was excellent. The sheath IS adequate, and not at all a deal-breaker, I would just prefer an optional heavier and thicker cordura sheath-I'd pay for it. I do know that Stellar Rigs, who made my kydex neck holster for my Kel Tec P32 pistol makes a series of shoulder and across the back rigs for this knife-to include a pistol carrying option with it! This is my new bowie for all seasons to go with my survival back pack for emergencies and deep woods treks. I bought a second one for my best friend!

Polar bear Sushi....a breeze
Beheading zombies no problem at all with this knife. it is massive and the blade is easy to get very sharp. Sheath is fine. Could use it as a machete or sushi blade. This knife could surely cut through one of the grass mats used by sword tests, its gonna have so much momentum on the downswing it'd cut off maybe two zombie heads in one swing. The point is great and shape of tip is good for stabbing. Its a small sword. BUY it.

BIg beast
Damn this is an angry looking knife! I am sure you only have to wave it around and that herd of brain dead zombies will run. The blade shaved hair straight out of the box, the handle is great, I have XL size hands and the handle is perfect. The let down (but won't take away from overall score) is the sheath, is as useless as boobs on a bull! get my drift? But seeing I am not going to carry this blade on a belt the sheath does it's job, I use it more in a pack, get it out at the camp-site ready for action, it will chop any size tree, cut flesh from zombies, and so on, with other words if you want a mean looking blade that does everything well for what it is made to do, than spending your cash on this is well spend. 5 out of 5 (but would love a kydek sheath for it)

Very rugged. Strong.
I bought this for camping and hunting. It is a well suited knife for what I require. The blade wasn't very sharp out of the box, but that was quickly resolved with a stone. The balance is a little forward but it works well for the design. I jammed this knife into a tree to act as a step while getting into my tree stand this year. It sunk in deep and is still pretty sharp. A very good all around camp knife.

great knife
ive carryed and used this knife for years it cuts like a dream for a fighter its weights butif you are strong and train with it it will be a monster and make sure to sharpen the clip too and so you know the guard it welded to the blade and the same steel as the knife i put a stag handle on mine but the rubber works better for impact its a great knife and it can get sharp as hell youd be a fool not to buy it

Very nice knife
- Works great for chopping and batonning - The black coating on the blade doesnt scratch easily - Only thing I didn't like was that the blade is really dull out-of-the-box

Fantastic tool
This is one beast of a knife. Exactly what you'd expect from a Bowie, this knife is particularly think. Great handle. Good recurve. Very, very nice. And for 50 bucks. You need it.

Tackle it ALL!
I bought this knife to use as my primary camp tool. After some testing, I am confident that I will be able to rely on it for years to come. The 1/4"-thick blade puts the weight forward, which makes the knife great for chopping & processing wood for camp fires, cutting down logs to build primitive shelters, or any other heavy-duty jobs. The handle is comfortable in the hand, and remains pleasant even through extended use - no hot spots! The guard is beefy and strong as well. Out of the box, my Marine Raider knife readily shaved all the hair off my left forearm (the wife thinks I'm nuts...). Even after an afternoon hacking up seasoned wood, the edge stayed sharp enough to slice paper. A few strokes on my "fine" sharpening stone (a Hard Arkansas) brought it back to razor-sharp. The sheath design is great. It holds the knife securely, and stays out of your way while you're wearing it (thanks to the D-ring swivel and leg tie-down). My only fear is that the sheath may not last as long as the knife... but they never do. Eventually I'll make a new one, but won't have to for another several years at least. All around, I give this package two big thumbs up!

This is a heavy duty tool
This is a quality product... heavy duty in all respects. The sheath design is different but it works.. with 2 snaps the knife isn't going to fall out if you find yourself moving fast through rough terrain.

Knife is lightweight for carrying and I'm fairly pleased with it... the saw back isn't highly effective but I'm going to work on it with a small file and see if I can improve it some. Sheath could be higher quality but overall I'm happy with my purchase

Excellent Blade
I own quite a few K Bars and Cold Steel knives and I am very happy with this purchase. As a Bowie, it has great weight balance, blade sharpness and overall feel. I can see why the sheath is cheap, in order to be able to pass along the savings onto the customer- a better sheath would have increased the price.

Great survival knife.
This among the highest value knives I have ever owned. This knife has the weight and width to be an excellent chopper. This thing processes wood better than some small hatchets I've used. It's decently sharp out of the box. It may take a couple passes to shave a completely bald spot on your arm, but for a knife this size, I don't really need or want a scalpel edge. The utility edge works fine. The only reasons I gave it a four instead of a five is that the sheath is a couple steps shy of garbage and there are some minor symmetry issues. The symmetry issues are largely cosmetic. Then angles nearing the tip are not equal which makes it look a little silly upon close inspection. This I can forgive because it doesn't really effect the functionality. It's just a minor thing I dislike. The sheath on the other hand, is a leather and nylon combo is functional in that it allows the knife to be worn safely. That all it does correctly. It makes a fair amount of noise as you move if you wear it on your hip. The cordage provided to tie the end to your leg so it stays stable is NOT parachute cord but a cheap synthetic not dissimilar to shoelaces. The retention straps are difficult to fasten because they are about a millimeter too short. In addition, they are slow to undo because they are spaced far apart and unfasten in a near perpendicular angle. This is no cowboy fast-draw knife. Another thing of note, that isn't really a complaint because I won't deduct points from the score, is that this is not that good of a large fighting knife. Weight and forward-heavy balance make it feel a bit sluggish in my opinion. The reach and cutting power gained by wielding this knife is far from negligible, but I would argue that you would be stabbed twice before you cut off your attacker's hand. That being said, anyone that sticks around to fight with you after you pull out one of these beasts probably has a fully loaded gun in their hands. Care to test the 21-foot rule?

Another winner from Ontario
Made in the USA, 1/4" thick, tip that will pierce just about anything. After i sharpened it up to my standards, I was able to baton it through a piece of oak firewood with many knots in it. It took all i had to do it. After i was done, there were no chips & it still shaved paper. Now "this is a knife" AND a bargain. Sheath is ok, love the swivel.

One large utility knife
The Raider Combat Knife (Ontario mfg) can be used anywhere you need a machete! It is not meant to be pretty but it is very functional for clearing an area of cactus to bushes and a bush hog is unavailable. It has good weight and its a working knife for rough work. Out of the box it needs sharpening but that is not detrimental. Unless your on active duty, its a knife that will be transported to where its needed by a vehicle as opposed to using the sheath. More than likely removed from the sheath to cut what's needed, replaced back into the sheath, then stored in the vehicle that brought it as there are too many other knives available for carry purpose...i.e., a K-bar, a Randall, etc. For a knife built for hard, dirty work, not for daily wear, this knife is perfect. Takes a beating and will not break!

bad to the bone
I am a United States Marine (ret) i served three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanastan. i carried this knife with me and lets just say it saved my life on more than one occasion its fast heavy and holds an edge extremely well. i love the size but i would have loved it even more if it had a sheath that was molle capable for my tactical vest. Also it needs to have the false edge on the upper clip sharpened. but i will always have this blade around because it is a real life saver.

The best thing about it is that it is made in the U.S.A. Other than that, the weight distribution throughout the knife is great. It actually feels like a real combat knife is supposed to feel. It is pretty sharp too; maybe not razor sharp but it will do.

Ooo Baby!
No other knife touches this one for "bang for the buck." The blade is arrow-straight, sharp, and beefy. I've no doubt your Marine will get just as much out of this knife as the older Marines did original Raider "Gung Ho" Collins #18.

SO FAR SO GOOG
I DID NOT GO CAMPING YET, BUT I TESTED IT AT HOME AND SO FAR I'M REALLY SATISFIED. THE LOOK OF THE KNIFE IS EVEN BETTER THAN I EXPECTED. THE QUALITY IS QUITE IMPRESSIVE FOR THE PRICE. SO FAR I'M NOT SURE OF THE QUALITY OF THE HANDLE BUT I DOUBT IT WILL CAUSE ANY PROBLEMS. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT ONE OF THE TWO SNAPS ON THE SHEATH IS GIVING ME A HARD TIME BUT THIS IS JUST A SMALL DETAIL.

A very useful and tough Bowie Knife
I really love this knife. It came sharp right out of the box. The weight is excellent and the handle has a nice grip. I'm impressed with the blade and overall design. This knife can handle any task while out in the wilderness. The price was right for such an work horse item.

fool tang, but still cool
I've used this knife as a shovel and axe more than a knife. It is heavy, which can be both a good thing and a bad thing. My only issue with this knife is that the tang seams to stop short of the lanyard hole in the bottom of the handle. My tang has a bit of an internal wiggle inside the handle (side to side) that is annoying. I don't foresee this being a problem in a survival situation, but it bothers that perfectionist part of me. This was my first blade in 1095 carbon steel and I'm very happy with it. I don't keep it oiled, but I do wipe it off when it gets wet and it is doing just fine in the reasonably moist environments offered in my area. This knife is not gonna make the cut (pun intended) for my bug-out bag or my hike/camp load-outs, but I could see it filling a "one knife and no axe" roll. Solid 4*
