All the right features in a survival knife
I was already familiar with Ontario Knife Company's USAF survival knife -- my SERES instructor carried one and recommended that we cadets should procure one of our own. When I saw that OKC had updated and improved the design for the
U.S. Army's Air Warrior Program, I decided that this new version was the knife for me. I bought one of these a couple of years ago because it has all the right features in a survival knife as recommended by aviation survival expert Doug Ritter on his website Equipped to Survive: good steel with a corrosion-resistant finish that can keep an edge, but isn't too difficult to sharpen, a full length tang, medium length blade, slip-resistant handle with finger cross guard, lanyard hole, solid hammer cap, and an excellently constructed sheath. This knife has proven to be so good, I decided to order another -- never too many. When you first get it, sharpen it!

Work well couldve been sharper, belt cutter is excellent a little expensive when considering a benchmades guarantee.

This knife does everything it promises. It is compact, and durable, although a little heavy. the factory edge on the blade could have been a little sharper, but otherwise I am happy with it.
