Ontario Knife Company is one of the remnants of a time when America made incredibly well crafted tools right here on our soil. I always pay attention when they bring out something new. They recently shared this photo of some bushcraft classics that they will be releasing in Spring 2014.
The knife has a classic bushcraft shape with a spear point blade, small guard, slightly flared pommel, and relatively straight overall form. It certainly looks like a capable knife for a variety of tasks.
The machete is what really has my interest. A well executed machete is likely the most versatile survival tool in existance and Ontario Knife Company knows how to make a machete having made them for the US Military and commercial markets for many years. Their upcoming bushcraft machete has several desirable features including a cutting edge that comes nearly all the way to the handle, a sensible “bush machete” blade profile, a hooked pommel to aid in retention while chopping, and wood slab handles.
