Check this out for a comparison. I've never handled the Ontario but have contemplated it for a bit, especially at $60... Seems hard to go wrong. I really like my Cold Steel Kukris , I've got one in SK-5 and Carbon V. I like them more than any kukri I've handled to this point including a Busse KZ and some HI stuff. They're lighter, tough as nails ( not that the others weren't) and balanced well for cutting and chopping. I'd say get the Ontario and beat the living Hell out of it.
