    NY's Ontario Knives is now making the knives that Ranger Knives used to make. Knifecenter started carrying them last month. I picked up the 4.5" blade Shiv, in tan cordwrap. The sheath is a basic ballistic nylon job with a cheesy velcro collar, but the Bark River black leather pocket sheath I got from JS Burly's fits the Shiv well, so I have that option.

    This bad mamma jamma set me back about $47 USD before shipping. It's 1095 carbon steel with a black powder coating. The thing is close to a quarter inch thickness, but carries pretty light, in my pocket in the Bark River sheath, or on my belt in the nylon sheath that came with. They make these in micarta handles too, but I think they are ugly, and there roughly $20 more than the paracord.

    I added a Lanyard Zone 4 skull spiral lanyard to spice it up a bit.

    I know this thead has been dead for almost a year but I was wondering if anyone had anything to say about this knife. I didn't see much on the forum and I'm thinking about picking one up in the orange G-10.

    I got one, but havent used it much, its more like a back up. I think it is an under estimated knife, it has the perfect size for edc either in bag or person(good price too). The sheat is crap, so I made my own with kydex..

    Yeah, the sheath looks like it would be crap. I'm glad to hear it's a good edc bag knife. I'm thinking about putting it in my maxped lunada. Also, some websites say the orange handled version is G-10. However, it sure looks like micarta in the photos. Anyone have any info on that or close up pics they can post.

    It would be nice to see some better pics of the micarta handle colors.
