Another great AFSK
This is another great version of the iconic Ontario 499 Pilot’s Survival/Rescue knife. Mine came extremely sharp,right out of the box,which has been my experience with all my Ontario knives. I’m putting this one in the trunk of my car...at this bargain price,I’m buying another one,or two!

Stronger Airforce 499
I was issued this type of 499 knife as a US Army Aeroscout. I gave my knife a convex edge, which made it into a better slicer. This new "Modified" model does not have the blood groove, giving the blade a stronger, more solid feel. In addition, the added blade forward weight makes this knife more suited for cutting into wood. Overall, I like this model a little better than the original. A little clear, flat, poly acrylic spray on the leather grip, helps to protect the leather. If you convex and polish the edge, it greatly improves the cutting performance.

Very Good Value...
This model is a good field knife. It comes very sharp from the factory, has a good usable blade length, cuts well and is easily resharpened. The only draw back is the leather washer handle needed trimming at the ends. It came with over-run material, easily removed with a razor blade. I wish the sheath was made here but it works well.
