Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
a true bargain
1095 properly heat treated for under 50 bucks and American made. that's all ya really need to know to buy it. little points....comes with coating on edge. go cut some stuff and it will come off or hit your bench stones. bevels are decent on it for the price point. easily fixed if ya want to make it perfect. sheath is weak spot but ontario has great fixed blades and poor sheaths nothing new there. useable though. nothing else to say, ita a true bargain.

Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Blade Sharpness
WTF?
The tip of the blade had 2 different angles on the reverse side and yet a 3rd on the obverse. The entire edge of the reverse side was folded from incomplete sharpening and blade was not honed. Is this Ontario knives now? Overall impression is this was made in some guy's garage, maybe his name is Ontario. The sheath had paper glued to it in several places on the back. A couple hours to rework the tip, 30 minutes to sharpen and hone, next is the strop. Would have preferred a brown sheath with the whitish\tan leather grip. On the other hand, 1095 and $45.00. Will make do.
