    once in the x\?+x\?+because I plan to use this as a deer hunting knife, but this season I came up empty. The Sheath retention strap sucks. Its too tight for the knife and sometimes requires 2 hands to latch back on. Also it the plastic insert in the sheath is way loose for the knife and will rattle. Also the belt loop is big, cannot be detached, and there is no MOLLE or other cool things to it. I was disappointed with DeSantis who made the sheath.

    Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality, None
    Cons: Finish, Sheath/Scabbard
    OKC 5160 Bushcraft is a truck, not an SUV.
    First, 5160 is an alloy steel, 1095 a simple carbon steel. They are close in performance but 5160 at 54 Rc gets my cigar for toughness and ease of sharpening. In my experience, both are good field use blade steels. 5160 alloy costs more to make a blade. 1095 is a cheaper knife steel to make a blade, but still with good performance at higher rockwell. 5160 has both chromium for better hardening and silicon for toughness. Take your choice. Secondly, the only reason I did not rate this knife a 5 was because I had to finish the wood grip slabs before use. A light sanding and then applied Ballistol, with their new disposable cloths (great product, bio-degradable) and I was good to go. I also used an extra leather OKC pilots survival sheath to replace the nylon one (used Ballistol on leather).

    Pros: None
    Cons: Blade Material
    Dencent but overpriced (not KnifeCenter's Fault, but Ontario)
    I have to agree with the other reviewer who said "bullcraft" , the price is insane for a 5" blade that is only .12" thick and made of 1060 carbon steel. For just $20 more Ontario sell the Blackbird SK-5, which is a 5" blade, .13" thick and in exotic 154CM stainless steel. Come on Ontario, this is basically a glorified, heavy duty, "Old Hickory" knife that would sell for $8. If it was selling for $50 you would be selling this knife like hotcakes, but at $80 to $90, there are so many better bushcraft knife options.
