Ontario Marine Corps Lockback Spec Plus, Experiences?

Aug 6, 2000

has anybody any experiences with this knive (lockblade, 105 mm blade, 50 % serrated, carbon steel).

Is this knive robust, how thick is the spine of the blade, does it cut good, is it easy to sharpen, etc.?

Now that I think of it, I've never seen the Ontario USMC style folder in any stores. I'd be interested in hearing how sturdy it is. How does it compare to a Buck 110?

well guys, I saw one at a surplus store a few years ago. I don't remember much about it. I do remember it was very big. I ended up buying a smaller knife with a clip. I can't be much help, but in general if you don't hear about it being recommended around these forums you can probably get a better folder in that price range.

What is this existential quandry all about anyway?
