I consider this to be a medium sized utility knife. General camp chores or personal defense. It's not a chopper, and not a parring knife. I like the handle far more than the "old" leather washer style.
Got this through Amazon. Arrived in a timely manner. Well packaged. Was wanting to do a triple comparison between the SP 1, SP 2, and the SP 6. But Amazon fulfillment center stated it "couldn't send to my address" the SP 2, and the SP 6. But they could send the SP 1...... I'm confused :/)

I’m giving this one a middle of the road star review, because it seems like this one could go either way. We will see how this holds up and got some complaints.
Starting with the good...
- good steel and good steel for the application
- great thickness
- comfy And grippy in hand
- a full tang (I suspect what their calling a full tang, is sliver tongued marketing)
- the hand guard is noting but rubber.
- the rubber grip is over molded around the tang. Not really sure how well that is going to hold up with use. I am fore seeing with use that the whole grip will slide off and what’s the point of having a knife with no grips on it and not in a Skeletonized paracord kind of way lol.
I kind of want to cut the grips off and see if I can put a custom home made scales on it. But have a feeling it’s just basically a full length rat tail tang and not true full tang. Using the word tang, makes me want a glass of tang, it’s Probally been 30 years since I had a glass lol
Typical OKC makes epic products, not going to lie... little disappointed with them on this one. Not sure if this is what to be expected from OKC now days, or they just struck out on this one. Just leaves a lot to be desired
Also the sheath is garbage too... but who really buys a knife for solely for the sheath anyways.
Perfect role this Knife is a disposable beater knife or truck knife. All knives are a tools and ment to be used. But this one will be unnecessarily abused, tortured, and neglected.

When trying to get an answer, myself, I was surprised how many people were asking the same question. Who knew, some people prefer SP over Ka-bar. I shouldn't be surprised. OKC makes world class. tough and abuse-able knives at the best price point... BUT... just awful sheaths.
So, The answer is, "Yes. No and (after a few hours of work) Yes.". You're welcome.
First, Yes. You can jamb it in there... but you will need both hands to pull it back out, making it pretty un-useable. plus, the plastic latch will mis-shape how it sits on your hip. And finally, the snap will not close around the sp-1 handle as placed.
So, the Yes answer is actually.... NO. it will not fit.
Today, I went back to work on it. I now have the exact knife I want. An un-intended consequence is that it is now a very attractive, one of a kind knife. I should probably keep my mouth shut... but I will walk you through the mod.
First, use a dremil to carefully shave down the plastic locking fold. Try not to go all the way trough the plastic. The sp-1 is a little thicker than a Ka-bar. So the next step is to use a heat gun to (slowly and carefully) blow hot air directly into sheath hole till its first sign of softening, then jamb the knife back in and let it cool. Last step. Remove the rivet of the snap strap with a set of vice grips. Crush, tighten and crush again till it comes apart. Then move the strap up to the point where the bottom of the strap is at the very top of the previous rivet hole. Sew back in place with thick nylon thread. Done.
Why would someone go to the trouble? Age has taught me that the sheath is more important than the knife in it. A knife only has value if it is on you when you need it. The right sheath will determine whether you are willing to wear it every day, or at least all day.
I have been using an SP-8 since about 1997 and it has been one of the finest bush tools of my life (once I ground of the saw) During the first year of the pandemic, my daily carry around the permaculture doomstead was an SP-5. The new sheath it came in was sooo awful, I modified the oldschool leather sheath from SP-8 to fit it. But that is another story.
I hope this helps.
