Ontario Utilitac II Satin Tanto
This is the first Tanto style knife I have owned, but I admit I am impressed with it. Nice feel in hand, no slip issue with the scales. A little heavy, but you can feel the quality in this inexpensive knife, really worth twice what they charge. Nice solid blade lock up, looks to be about 50% lock up with the liner lock. Blade is dead center of the liners, with no play fore and aft or side to side. Just a well made EDC knife, with nice gimping on the handle as well as the blade. Might want a little bigger finger choyle to facilitate fine work for camping. Pocket clip can be positioned in either right or left hand orientation, with the choice of tip up or down, but the clip is STIFF. Great purchase, you won't be disappointed.
