In 1969, A friend gave me a Camillus Pilot Survival Knife that had a thick blade with a blue like finish, and a concave edge, which could be sharpened to a deep cutting edge. I took that knife on many backpack excursions in Mexico. The Camillus knife was good for many tasks, which included among other uses, cleaning fish, wood processing for campfire, digging, and opening coconuts. While I had it, over the decades, that knife served well.
The Ontario copy has an abruptly beveled edge. I had to sharpen it for a long while to achieve an adequate sharpness, but it does not make deep cuts. Nonetheless, it functioned well enough for shaving wood off a Black Walnut (hard wood) bow staff. Setting its abrupt, angled edge to one side, the Ontario version seems tightly built, and comparable in strength to the former Camillus.
The metal reinforced sheath that comes with the Ontario copy is better, safer, than the all leather sheath issued by Camillus.
If you need a deep edge for better slicing, the Ontario copy is challenged. The low price is the deciding factor. If you need to budget for a general-purpose outdoor tasks knife, I think that the Ontario copy is good, enough, to rely on in a pinch.
I bought this knife and though saddened as I opened the carton when I received in the mail, it was also comical. Instantly viewing the handle and gently inspecting the blade, I knew this was either a counterfiet or the manufacturers were asleep as the automated machinery in the facity malfunctioned.
Regardless, I kept the knife and took it to my bench grinder to shape the blade into a blunt ended ice breaker or for self defense jabbing tool.
If this knife was made for survival, it fails miserably. Better suited for a hopeful survival but actually a realistic failure tool
