I had one Ontario knife and it will be my last. It was one of the marine raider bowies. I admit that I was throwing it into a wooden target, but I wasn't missing and the blade took a severe bend just from getting thrown into some wood. I've done the same with a bunch of my knives and the ones that fail like this are usually flea market specials left over from childhood. I was really unimpressed with that knife.
On the other hand I've owned a Kabar and was very happy with the quality for the price.
Kabar all the way!
