Ontario's Spec Plus line of knives is quite possibly the best stuff they're putting out right now. I feel that they are superior to the RAT series, which hasn't been the same since RAT actually left Ontario and became ESEE. The only other line that is as good is the Ranger seris, and they tend to be more expensive (micarta handles and all).

What's to like about the SP49? A lot. Ontario offers other 8" knives in the Spec Plus line, including the SP45 and the SP43, as well as the 49's twin, known as the SP48. The difference is this - the 48 and 49 both have deeper bellies for better chopping results, while retaining the decently sharp points. The SP49 features a sabre grind as opposed to the full flat grind of the 48. What does this mean? The 49 weighs a couple/few ounces more than the 48, but that's all. The kraton handle is tough, but very forgiving on the hand when chopping or baton work comes into play.

As a slicer, the 49's edge is plenty sufficient - being a chopper doesn't hinder it. It may well be the best 8" knife that Ontario offers. The SP43 with it's spear point may argue, but it isn't quite the chopper than the 49 is.

The sheath is a bit of a disappointment, but I normally won't take off points for that. In this case, I really should but I won't simply because the knife is darn good.

That said, this "one size fits all" thing can become tiresome when you purchase the 49's little brother (the SP47), and find that the sheath is pretty much the same length. Another issue with the 49's sheath? Well, it has a Velcro strap. Now some folks will like that over a button snap, and I can understand. However, THIS particular sheath features a strap that doesn't have enough Velcro on it, and what Velcro IS there isn't nearly aggressive enough.

This is my second Ontario knife, I also own and love the SP10 Marine Raider, and this knife is great as well! The handle fits well in my hand, and was amazingly sharp out of the box. I love the shape of this knife, its broad and fairly long, the thickness of the blade is less then the SP10, but it makes up for it for being very nicely balanced and light. I am sure it will be very useful in the bush, preparing wood, skinny a rabbit, and if need too can be used as a fighting knife as well as it is light in the hand.

Sadly I had to take 1 star away due to that poor of an excuse of a sheath! I just don't get it, great blade but what a poor sheath, its not like I did not pay enough for this knife! The knife just flops around in the sheath and has a poorly designed strap that goes around the handle. The sheath on the SP10 is no award winner, but it does hold the knife much better. I will make a Kydex sheath for this knife, as it just begs for 1!

Any knife making company out there that will make a great blade and backs it up with a great sheath will get my cash next time around!

Perfect balance and lenght for people with big hands. Tip and blade is very strong. Sharp and perfect is rocking motion near tip for food prep and bushcrafting. Feathersticks to chopped logs up to 6 inches I say easy. Batons well and 3/16 of an inch thick up to the last 3/4 inch from tip. My third favorite camping/hiking blade other than both my Buck Thug and Kabar Becker BK-9.
