This is a good, well made knife, but the complete product is not worth the price that is being asked (Currently $79)

Every knife that I have bought from Ontario is well made, from quality materials. This knife is no exception. I have used it for a number of farm and woodlot chores over the last month. It has performed well, maintained a good edge, and shows no real signs of wear. I like the full tang construction and the rugged walnut handle with three bolts.

The blade profile is decent for bushcrafting projects, although not exceptional. The blade and handle length is a little longer than most bushcraft knives, which is good for those of us with large hands. The shape of the handle does not fit my hands well, however. It is OK, but it never quite sits in my hand the way I want it to. I have a Helle Taiga that sits perfectly. Every time I pick up the Taiga, it feels like it was designed with my hand in mind. This knife I keep changing my grip on, trying to find the grip that will feel the most natural, but it just isn't there. This may be different for you. For comparison, my ESEE CM6 fits me reasonably well, and my Cold Steel Trailmaster fits me very well. The Taiga is the best though.

The sheath is a problem. The stitching and materials are fine, but the design is poor. When you want to put the blade back into the sheath, you have to stop what you are doing and fiddle with it. The snap that secures the knife into the sheath also has to be fiddled with. Ontario wants to market this as a bushcraft knife, but the sheath design is a hassle. A proper bushcraft knife is easily accessible, yet secure in its sheath.

The solution to the sheath problem would be to make or purchase an aftermarket leather Scandinavian sheath.

My first thought was, "This knife will never take an edge". Man, was I wrong. About two minutes on the diamond stone, and it was frightfully sharp. The back edge of the blade is ground off very flat and sharp. This is something I did not expect and had intended to do to the knife. It wasn't necessary. Ontario did it for me. This sharp edge on the backside is perfect for planing and striking ferro sticks. The sticks throw generous showers of sparks when raked across this sharp edge. When planing wood, this sharp edge produces fine shavings for starting fires. The ferrocerium stick that comes with the knife looks exactly like the ones sold through Coghlans. I have several of these, as they are my favorites. I don't use the steel strikers that come with the sticks. I toss them in the trash and use my knife to strike up a fire. No reason to carry dead weight. The nylon sheath, which is made in the USA by De Santis and has their label on the back, is very good quality. Stitching is beautiful and hems are perfect. Snaps are tight and strong. Back to the knife; The finish on the blade and handles is very good. A nice brushed finish. Nothing flashy. The handles are well fitted. They were obviously fitted to the knife properly after they were installed. There is no overhang and the wood goes all the way out to the edge of the steel all the way around. This should go without saying, but I've seen so many knives with pre-cut handles that were slapped on without additional fitting or finishing. The handles are smooth, but not slick. The knife is very comfortable in my hand and balances well. Overall, this is a very good knife. The only thing I would like to see different is, I would prefer a lanyard hole liner. But it's no big deal. I normally prefer a leather sheath, but I rather like this one. I feel the knife is well worth what I paid for it.

This is a great outdoor/bushcraft knife. The Amazon photo is not an accurate dipiction of the knife. The OKC Bushcraft is high quality and made in the USA. The OKC Bushcraft is a no frills knife that is light, strong enough to handle most outdoor tasks, and keeps a razor sharp edge. A few reviews have negative comments on the sheath, however I have had no problems with knife retention or the quality. The sheath is well made with strong stitching and a kydex insert to secure the blade. Great as a hiking, camping, hunting, or survival knife. If you are looking for a reliable yet traditional looking knife you can't go wrong with this tool as many so called "bushcraft" and "survival" knives look more menacing than practical. Picked as the 2014 "Best of the Best" knife by Field & Stream magazine. A great buy. My favorite knife outdoors and the tool I carry for my bush tasks. Will pass this on to my son as this knife will last the test of time.

I have been using this knife for over a year. It sharpens up well, seems fairly rugged, and is well made.

The handle doesn't have great ergonomics. I don't find it to be comfortable, or to provide good control for fine work. The walnut scales are really quite nice, though, and have held up to hard work.

The steel is a little soft. It sharpens easily, but needs to be sharpened fairly frequently.
The sheath is poorly designed and annoying. The fire started worked a couple times, and then became useless.

I wouldn't buy this knife again. I use it now when I don't want to dull the edge of my better knives. This knife is a sturdy, decent knife, but the design is not as well suited for bush crafting and field work as I would like.
