Ontario Knife Company SP-5 Survival Bowie with Sheath

Over the years since the SP5's sunset, OKC had received a steady stream of requests to bring back this classic bowie knife design. But when we received word that an SP5 had survived a house fire with the blade and coating in nearly perfect condition, and the owner asked us to bring back the bowie, we knew what we had to do. Rising from the ashes by demand, it's the return of an American legend. The quarter inch thick, 10 inch blade will be your most faithful and fearsome companion.

Hefty and sharp
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Great for a bush knife. Hefty for bowie and very, very sharp. This knife could go for hours on the battlefield and just look badass and perform to. The sheath was better than I expected for 30$. Very rugged. Would definitely buy again.

Be careful
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It's big and it has a hefty feel to it. Very comfortable in the hand but I do not think it would be easy to conceal. My EDC would have to stay in the truck if I had to run into a convenience store for anything. The handle could also be a little slick in certain situations. Great workhorse for camping. Not too big or small.

Great for value
Review by Keepshooting Customer
This was purchased as a replacement for the Ka-Bar Screwpac I lost in a car break in. It does everything I needed it to do. Solid in my hands and fits my hand great. Good edge, comes very dull, and a good working edge. A really good all around bush knife. I would buy again if it gets lost. But for now I am very happy.

Good Knife at a Good Price. But Be Careful when you hold it.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I purchased this Sp-5 knife to go on the Sp-2 backpack carry by ESEE and couldn't be happier. The knife feels great in the hand. It has a good, heavy heft and the butt seems to add enough weight to help it keep its point and penetrate the material it's being placed against. I like that it came with a fairly sharp blade and with the sheath you can carry the knife in either left or right hand and the butt of the knife can double as a striker. The handle has enough space between the tang and the handle that your hand won't slip. But be careful. It is VERY sharp. The coating will also rub off if used improperly and exposure to the elements will take its toll. The end result will still be an amazing knife that will do what you need it to. Just keep it from going in contact with your hand if you have a tendency to scratch yourself or have bumps and cuts on your hands from using other equipment or chafing. It's easy to hold and operate one-handed and the finger grooves provide the same traction you'd get with hardwood. And I love the stacked leather handle and the metal cross guard. If you like the 1095 Cro-V handle of the military aircrew survival knife or Ka-Bar military digger but can't stand the hard sheath or sharp knife, buy this knife. The two match perfectly. And with this you get the handle AND the sharpness you like.

Tough Knife, needs sharpening. Well Worth the Price.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Shipping is fast and product arrived as described. This Ontario SP-5 is as advertised, a beefy piece of tough tool steel. If the purpose of your buy is self defense, this SP-5 won't disappoint. It won't break or bend if it strikes bone, however a good sharpness would be helpful. There are already 2 gnarly dings and I haven't even used it for a purpose. Also worth noting, this doesn't have an "edge geometry" and isn't really for show either, its for utility purposes and to cut wood, that's it.

Great product
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Well worth the money. Durable steel, strong grip. Very satisfied with the purchase. Very sharp, I put a finger through the leather sheath, cut a piece out and made it into a lanyard. Love the look and feel. Very nice tool and well worth it

It's OKC what else can I say it will ...
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It's OKC what else can I say it will get dirty no doubt and hold a edge. Witch knife is suppose to do it does. If your looking for a fixed Bowie with little back round like sights no such thing. The edge on the top and even on the pommel should help you hit you intended target for the tip of the knife. You can even rest you for and make shavings for starting fires. So many other tools avalable this has its place
