When in the history of MTO has being sensible made any sense? :pok: :pok:

That's sensible also.

This knife is still in production by Ontario Knife Co.


If you're going to butcher it like I did, you're probably better off buying something else to start with (Like OKC Old Hickory outdoor knife, which costs less than half as much out the gate)

I just happened to have the USAF knife and was doing what I could to make it something I would use, because in its original configuration I didn't have much use for it. I can't possibly recommend anyone go buy one, the design features, novel as they are, have limited application these days, you'll always be using the wrong tool for the job :P

I've got my dad's old survival knife from when he flew near the end of WW II, with a broken pommel.
The story here is that Dad ditched in the ocean while attempting a carrier landing and broke the pommel exiting the aircraft. Don't know if the broken pommel came from this or not but I do have the photos of the aircraft "ditching" off the carrier.
