I wore out my father's Navy Kabar growing up.

It literally took @ 10 years. Landscaping, tree-trimming,

you name it. I didn't realize it at the time, but it was

an epic torture test. It's a standard by which I

compare all other sheath knives. They usually come up

short. Very short.

While I can't corroborate the "Ontario", we have a winner with Pilot's Knife.
While this knife has spend over 20 years with me, I purchased it from an old crusty guy that ran a seafood shop on Hood Canal, on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

He indeed referred to it as his pilots knife. I didn't get much more on the story, which I now regret.

I use it more as a pack knife or vehicle knife rather than a belt knife.
I open carry a .45, but my government frowns on me having a knife

Here are some WebPics of the critters.
