This knife is a beast very tough beat on it all day hasn't failed split wood cut small limbs cut up food it's great
Yes I am disappointed in OKC with this one.
I own three other OKC knives and a machete and the quality was lacking in this one.
The blade was beyond dull, it took a lot of time to put a good edge on it.
The biggest disappointment is the sheath, over all it's just poor, sloppy fit, and the stitching was coming out straight out of the box. I wish it came with a good leather sheath.
I have been thinking about getting a leather kbar sheath and see if it fits. A pvc homemade sheath would be better than what came with it.
Yes I will keep the knife, after putting a edge on it I have no complaints about the knife it self...
I received my SP-1 yesterday. I'm disappointed to find the blade bevel was way off center and the knife was dull.
It is going to take a lot of reprofiling to get a cutting edge on this knife. I'm not sure I am going to keep it, as I did not buy this for a butter knife.
Very low quality control.
Had this blade for over 2 years now. I've used it in pretty much every scenario. Throwing, box cutting, prying, twisting, you name it it's been through it. I've even worn 75% of the black coating on the blade and had it repainted. Bought it from a chain store they have a deal with. Molle has held up from severe abuse and so has the straps. I wear it every day when I'm just out and about on a thigh rig and that same thigh rig was used for work so this thing spent 14+ hours a day 365 days for two years and the only issue I had was that the stitching on the belt loop has fallen apart even though there isnt anything going through it. 9/10 knife.
TLDR. PRO: Durable as hell CON: Needs a sharpening often but that's probably from my over abuse
For a "Designed for military" advertised fighting knife, the blade could not even pass the easiest of tests, the paper test. It cannot slice all the way through. It keeps getting snagged, which means the sharpening during production is very poor. Also, if you look at the blade straight up and down, the tip is not evenly sharpened on both sides. Buying directly from OKC and spending more money to avoid a possible Amazon fake was a huge let down. This knife has potential, but now I have to spend even more money on sharpening stones to get it right. The handle is very good quality as well as the sheath, however, the sheath has the holes for the leg tie, but there is no tie provided?!?!? I had to buy my own. Would our military have to also? The only tie you get is a short shoelace to use as a lanyard strap and it's not durable at all. I gave it three stars for its overall quality and potential, but the dull blade is unacceptable due to the fact that it's advertised as "Designed for military" knife and because it costs more to buy directly from OKC. Please improve quality control.
