The knife easily takes on tasks ranging from bushcraft to hunting and paired with a durable leather sheath. The Fish & Small game knife makes a great companion with materials that you already know and trust.
On there Ontario knives I have purchased come with a nice even sharp edge. Old Hickory Hunting Series not so much. The three Hunting Series knives (2 hunting, 1 small game/trout) have arrived with uneven edge bevels. I purchased these for the steel used in the blade, but had to take a file to all three to even them up before sharpening them.
I purchased the OKC fish and small game knife because of the Kephart style at a low price point. I've had it for a few months now, although I have not had an opportunity to use it extensively. I have used it enough to know it is comfortable in hand and holds an edge respectably well. The most challenging thing I've used it for was filleting a flounder I caught. The knife edge was not in "peak condition" when I filleted the fish (fault of the user, not the knife), but I was pleasantly surprised at how well it did the job. I was able to get four clean fillets out of one fish, with removing the skin, without shredding the meat. I really don't know what else you could ask for. I'm very happy with this knife!
