Ontario 499 Air Force Survival Knife, 5" Carbon Steel Blade, Leather Handle
We've all heard amazing tales of stranded Air Force pilots making the best of bad situations, with only a few emergency rations and a single knife on hand as they fought for survival in enemy territory. Any survivor can tell you that all it takes is a cool head and a knife like this one to get you through some really tough times.
Built to military specifications, this knife by Ontario Knife Company is used by several branches of the U.S. Armed Forces because they know that this is the best of the best. You can use this knife to build a makeshift shelter, strip wood, dress wild game, and more.
Even better, its leather sheath also comes with a tie down cord and sharpening stone so you can maintain this knife while you're on the run.
