I picked this up in December of 2010, spent about 30 minutes putting a good edge on it, and have used it incessantly ever since. Yes, 30 minutes to sharpen it, with a comnination of stone nad diamond embedded stell hones... that itself says that the steel is excellent. A Cheap knife will sharpen in 5 minutes, but will lose it's edge quickly also. You will love the weight of this Bayonet! It mounts easily on my AR-15 (when I hunt hogs at close range, it's a nice close range weapon) and the sheath attaches well and sure to my pistol belt, vest, pack, wherever there is an Alice or Molle spot free.
You can look at other brands such as Smith and Wesson, SOG, etc.. but the extra cost for hte Ontario is definitely worth it. I have some S&W and SOG knives, and I'd take my one Ontario M9 Bayonet over 1/2 dozen others into the field.
Yes, the wire cutter functions perfectly on barbed wire and horse fence, and a small web strap with velco will ensure that it's secure against your leg when hung on a pistol belt. THIS IS THE ONE TO BUY!
They are too heavy and bulky for what they do - too fragile as a bayonet, useless as a chopper, terrible rounded slippery grip awful for stabbing, useless for finer utility work.
My unit stopped using them for bayonet trg because they kept breaking and went back to the M7 - a much better choice if you actually intend on having a tool for driving into people.
If you want a good value, unbreakable man stabbing fighting knife, get the cold steel recon tanto. Plus, you have the same amount of penetration depth, full tang toughness and a much lower profile design so you can conceal it easily if needed.
If you want a good value, unbreakable man chopper/awesome do-all survival tool, get an Ontario kukri and get a kydex sheath made for it.
If you want a fantastic fighting folder, spend the bucks and get a zt 350.
If you want a bayonet for your AK, get a commblock one. I have a Bulgarian Circle 10 one and it excellent if you have an ak74 style brake. If you want a stabber on the end of your AR or Mossberg, get an M7.
If you are buying a tool that you are going to trust your life to, whatever you do, don't get one of these.
I don't understand knife guys who write reviews gushing over the fit and finish and cosmetics of a bayonet. Its meant to be something sharp, durable and functional to drive in to a man's heart - that's it.
If you mount one, check any change to zero due to different harmonics.Read more ›
