Exclamation My Ontario SP1 Combat knife arrived today.

This was a bargain at $26.99 this alternative to the 1211 KaBar "Fighting Knife". The 1075 Carbon Steel heat treated to 57-59 HRC holds a good edge and has been engineered for hard use. The 1075 steel doesn't "plate stack" as did the 1095 steel. The lower carbon steel is tougher and won't chip as quickly. Instead, the edge will "roll" and a new edge can be established very quickly.

Ontario Knife Company 8679 Sp-1 Combat Knife with Black Nylon Sheath

I prefer this to the KaBar in just about every way, from cost/benefit value to performance.
