I like it a lot.
Upon receiving my Ontario Blackbird SK-5 the first thing I noticed is it was not sharp. It quickly took an edge with a hard stone. The knife is well made, very basic and light. This is a no frills, not afraid to use it kind of knife. I can’t wait to put it to good use.

Simple, Elegant Design Destined to Become a Classic.
After several weeks of on-line research, combing through countless user reviews and lurking through survivalist’s forums, I selected the Ontario Blackbird SK-5 knife as an addition to my Bug Out Bag and camping gear. The Blackbird SK-5 is a very well designed bushcraft survival knife designed to perform a variety tasks in most any survival situation. A simple but elegant design destined to become a classic, those seeking Klingon Warrior/Zombie-Hunter movie props, may be disappointed in the Blackbird’s lack of demon logos, terrifying “teeth” and day-glow lip gloss. The Blackbird SK-5 excels as a solid working tool that feels natural in hand. The Micarta scales are precisely contoured, comfortable and well fitted. The knife’s light weight and balance are just about perfect for delicate slicing to moderate chopping while the premium grade 154CM blade steel retains a keen edge and is rust resistant. This knife could probably field-dress a Buick! The included sheath is above and beyond the average, as well, offering multiple MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) attachment options, an internal plastic blade liner and heavy-duty retention straps. The materials, stitching and color compliment the knife’s simple, utilitarian design. I’m very pleased with this purchase from
