The Ontario SK-5 Blackbird was designed by Paul Sheiter. In describing the knife he states, “I believe the more complicated a product becomes, the more likely it is to fail when your life depends on it. For this reason I designed The Blackbird SK-5 Knife to achieve maximum function delivered through pure simplicity. The blade is made from American made 154CM steel, known for its superior toughness, edge-retaining ability, sharpness and corrosion resistance. The SK-5’s blade is 0.13 inch thick and features a full-taper grind. The perimeter of the Micarta handle is rounded to provide a comfortable grip. The handle is secured to the knife tang with stainless steel Allen screws. The Blackbird SK-5 comes with a MOLLE compatible sheath with belt loop that features a rigid protective insert.

The weight and balance are perfect. The shape of the micarata scales allows a precise grip with plenty of protection. The blade is razor sharp and has an even finish. Whomever made…

exactly how a knife should be this knife is just superb. i was considering the ka-bar bk2 because of its awesome reviews and price but after handling it in the store, it felt way too heavy in my hand (its about a half pound heavier than the blackbird) so i reconsidered. i was also impartial to its solid black look as well. so, i took a chance and ordered the ontario blackbird sk5 (i couldnt find it in a store anywhere to take a look at it before i ordered it) and im sure glad i did! upon receiving the knife the first thing…
