Re: Ontario's Survival Bowie SP-5 (Item #8681)

The knife arrived a day early and I am impressed! It has "everything you need and nothing you don't". The clip-point on this Bowie is "tougher than whip leather" and is surprisingly light. Fast in hand, with a .25" spine. Brute strong, but "shaving sharp". Trust me, this one is a "keeper".

Re: Here's another that's coming to my mailbox

It arrived today, sharp enough to slice, and dismember any opponent.The only thing I'll change is the brown piping on the sheath. (I'll be dyeing it black).

Ontario's Survival Bowie SP-5 (Item #8681)

This will be a versatile 10" bowie blade of 1075 Carbon Steel that will fill a niche in my collection.

I like it.

Re: Here's another that's coming to my mailbox

If you go to the eBay DK Only Knives site you can find pictures of it under A45. It has a brass guard and a steel pommel with a stacked leather (brown/black) handle. Believe me, Paul Hogan would love it. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81ZniL4-YbL._SL1500_.jpg I finally managed to l...

Here's another that's coming to my mailbox

This one has a 12" blade that has been "vacuum quenched" so that the D2 steel will attain a Rockwell hardness of 58-60. ("Crocodile" Dundee would love this one).

Re: DK ONLY Knives? (There's a picture link in my latest post).

I asked DK ONLY KNives about the "air quenching" of their D2 steel. They replied, Hi We use Vacuum tempering (with air quenching) and the hardness is around 60-61 hrc. After the knife is ready (completely finished), the hardness gets around 59-60hrc I have listed a lot of new items in last few days ...

Re: DK ONLY Knives? (There's a picture link in my latest post).

I was perusing the Randall Knives website and spied the Smithsonian Bowie:

I really believe this looks a bit like the knife I have with an inch shorter blade and a slightly longer clip.

Who knew?

Re: DK ONLY Knives? (There's a picture link in my latest post).

Perfect for beheading crack heads, just a thought. Really nice knife though! I have one of those living across the way. A "garbage picker" that looks like an unmade bed every day of his life. Believe me when I tell you, I keep either the Ontario Marine Raider SP-10 sharp and handy. I never turn my ...

Re: DK ONLY Knives? (There's a picture link in my latest post).

Thank you, John. The DK ONLY KNIVES people in Bloomington, Indiana jealously guard their reputation. The insist on customer satisfaction. If you haven't had a true "five-star" experience with them, they will make it so, regardless of the cost. They make some beautiful skinners in D2 steel. Go to eBa...

Re: New Leverletto US

Bill: That's the way more Leverlettos should be built. Could you suggest this to the people in Italy? It would make the pocket carry of smaller Leverlettos more convenient and popular.

It's just a thought

Re: DK ONLY Knives? (There's a picture link in my latest post).

This thing is a BEAST! and it is razor sharp. The spine is thick and the D2 steel has been properly heat-treated and tempered. I wholeheartedly recommend DK ONLY KNIVES for affordable, beautiful, practical and functional fixed blade knives made from durable D2 steel. (Remember: D2 steel CAN rust if ...
