Cons: None
Well thought out system!
I was really impressed with this system. The blade is big enough for large tasks yet small enough for finer tasks. Very comfortable grip for long term tasks. Non reflective zinc coating is tough and works well. Lashing eyelets are a plus. Strap cutter is super sharp, easily and quickly deployed from the sheath without removing the knife. Ceramic honing rod on the strap cutter is a nice touch. And to round out the trifecta, is a solid, rugged, sheath with multiple wearing configurations. If I could only add one thing to the system, it would be a ferro rod (which I DID add with a ranger band).

Ontario ASEK survival knife
Use of this as a hunting/camping knife and specifically as a pilot use as a survival tool in the event the worst case scenerio occurs. Good quality insurance hopefully will never have use; but preparedness and planning for the unexpected is the one thing you have control over. I keep the Ontario knife in an emergency bag in the cockpit.

Modern Pilot's Knife
This is a modern take on the old USAF "pilot's survival knife" from the Viet Nam era. Any true "survival knife",is a compromise,as it is a knife that will always be carried,and used in a true survival situation. This knife is a real "step up"from the original, as it is much better for everyday camp use.The sheath is a definite improvement over the original, and the strap cutter is a real plus.Most importantly,it's still made in the U.S.A!!!

Nice knife, but.
I love the knife, but I had the serations converted to "Veff serations" much better.
