The SPEC PLUS products are a diverse mix of top-selling and innovative knife and tool patterns designed for military, sporting and first responder purposes. Each knife in the SPEC PLUS series features a comfortable Kraton® handle, epoxy textured powder coated 1075 carbon steel blades, full tang construction and a tactical nylon sheath.
In regards to the other reviewer, the grind at the tip may intentionally be asymmetric. They seem to be made like that and I does reinforce the tip making it stronger. This is the best knife for the money I’ve ever found. Extremely strong, it chops almost as well as a small axe, and is extremely durable. The handle, hand guard, sheath, and of course the 1/4 thick 1095 full tang blade are all well designed, ergonomic, and functional. If you could have only one knife for life or one tool for the wilderness, this would be it.
I have collected knives for years but had never gotten a ontario knife before but after having a few friends talk me into getting one i ordered two. This knife could be great but the grind on the cut edge at the tip is off and dont meet up. Overall i think it is a tank but disappointed in the quality control i own countless knives and have never seen that before and i only have ever owned this one and the sp1 i ordered the same day and it is great but for me that is a 50/50 on getting a good knife i still have my beckers bk2,3 and 9 the u.s.m.c kabar and kabar fighter and a few more.
#1 Pro- built like a tank
