A total re-sharpening job on 20° with a Lansky 4 Rod Diamond/Ceramic Crock Stick Sharpener cured problem with blade sharpness.

Solid

If you like fighters and a tough knives this one is for you! It has a great presence and balance in the hand. I strapped on my Pack and it goes on easy and is easy to deploy. The sheath is well made and has a great retention with or without the straps. It wasn't the sharpest out of the box but very easy to remedy. Overall I would recommend this knife a great addition to any collection or would be a great user on the field. This is my third Ontario and there will be more. The Top swedge is sharp and the D2 pommels a beast for smashing.

great value for relative litthe money

Hard to sharpen. However it is a fightingknife. Penetration performance excellent. This type of serated edge performs good and is easy to sharpen.

Good but needs work

This piece came dull as a butter knife which is BS for a knife in this price range. Overall quality is good but if held up to a light you can see a gap between the guard and the handle. Again this shouldn't happen in a knife in this range. Otherwise the knife feels solid and with a good sharpening should work well as a survival knife although I think it works best as a fighting knife. Buy it if you like the look and features but realise it needs better QC.

Dull with Poor Edge

This is a beast of a knife, and I believe it to be well made; however, the person whose job it was to sharpen it failed. Knife came more dull than most butter knives and this was difficult to remedy because the grind of the edge was all messed up. Putting the knife in and out of the sheath a couple of times took the coating completely off of one side. Overall, I am disappointed in this knife. I don't buy knives new to fix them. This is nothing new. All of the Ontario products I have purchased have come dull with poorly ground edges. No more Ontarios for me!
