ON6525: Bushcraft Field Knife
Ontario Knife Company
Rugged, Dependable, Simplicity; three hallmarks that make Ontario Knife Company an award winning producer of some of the world’s highest quality and most functional hunting, bushcraft, and wilderness survival tools. Bushcrafting knives are renowned in the industry for their comfort in hand during long periods of use. They minimize what are called "hot spots" where pain develops in the hand while cutting, splitting or whittling. Ontario has created this slim, sleek fixed blade ideally for Bushcrafting but it works just as well as a field, camp, or hunting knife as the 5160 carbon steel blade will take a very fine edge. This knife comes with a nylon belt sheath, fire starter, bottle opener, paracord bracelet, and is proudly made in the USA.

Cons: Finish, Sheath/Scabbard
OKC 5160 Bushcraft is a truck, not an SUV.
First, 5160 is an alloy steel, 1095 a simple carbon steel. They are close in performance but 5160 at 54 Rc gets my cigar for toughness and ease of sharpening. In my experience, both are good field use blade steels. 5160 alloy costs more to make a blade. 1095 is a cheaper knife steel to make a blade, but still with good performance at higher rockwell. 5160 has both chromium for better hardening and silicon for toughness. Take your choice. Secondly, the only reason I did not rate this knife a 5 was because I had to finish the wood grip slabs before use. A light sanding and then applied Ballistol, with their new disposable cloths (great product, bio-degradable) and I was good to go. I also used an extra leather OKC pilots survival sheath to replace the nylon one (used Ballistol on leather).

Pros: None
Cons: Blade Material
Dencent but overpriced (not KnifeCenter's Fault, but Ontario)
I have to agree with the other reviewer who said "bullcraft" , the price is insane for a 5" blade that is only .12" thick and made of 1060 carbon steel. For just $20 more Ontario sell the Blackbird SK-5, which is a 5" blade, .13" thick and in exotic 154CM stainless steel. Come on Ontario, this is basically a glorified, heavy duty, "Old Hickory" knife that would sell for $8. If it was selling for $50 you would be selling this knife like hotcakes, but at $80 to $90, there are so many better bushcraft knife options.
