A beast of a knife!.....with one problem
This is my first Ontario product, and I'm very impressed. This knife is built like a tank. It's a little on the heavy side, but it's built for heavy use. I have large hands, but it fits well. The blade feels like a natural extension of you hand, with either traditional, or reverse grip. The micarta handles are substantial, and feel good in the hand. The blade was a bit dull when I got it, but 5 minutes with a honing steel fixed that.The kydex sheath is horrible though. It's unnecessarily large, and feels cheap. Mounting options are severely limited. You can basically carry it straight up an down on strong side for traditional draw, on your left side for left hand reverse draw, or maybe a horizontal small of the back right handed draw. The problem is that the belt loop portion is not reversible. There are only screw holes on one side of it, so your options are really limited. I had planned on making this an EDC, but it'll probably never leave the house now, because of the sheath.If you're willing to spend extra money on a custom sheath, go for it. If not, but something else with a decent sheath, and skip this knife.
