The Ontario Knife Company®’s Blackbird SK-5™—A Knife To Save Your Life

The new Ontario Knife ® Blackbird SK-5™ is not your typical outdoors knife; it is a tool that will serve you in the most extreme survival circumstances. By its very nature, a survival knife has to be able to endure prolonged use when splitting, notching, batoning — applications requiring superior force that when applied to other knives would be viewed as abuse. Many knives on the market today resemble multitools more than survival knives. The Blackbird SK-5 by the Ontario Knife Company was born out of exhaustive testing to ensure that only the most critical features directly related to survival were incorporated.

“My goal with the Blackbird SK-5 was to achieve the highest degree of function, delivered through pure simplicity. I wanted to create a tool that was comfortable to use and excelled in the core purpose of a wilderness survival knife, which is processing wood,” said knife designer Paul Scheiter.

The handle of the Ontario Knife Blackbird SK-5 was designed to provide a solid purchase for your hand every time. It’s constructed of Micarta, not too rough or smooth, just a solid grip, wet or dry, and nearly indestructible. The five-inch blade is crafted from 154CM steel. This steel is American made, heralded for its superior toughness, edge-retaining ability, sharpness and corrosion resistance. The intended function of the Blackbird SK-5 dictated the form and blade design. The SK-5’s blade is 0.13-inch thick and features a full-taper grind. The geometry of the blade works with the user, not against him, for enhanced carving and cutting operations.

The sheath for the Ontario Knife Blackbird SK-5 is crafted from a rot-reducing, tactical nylon which is fully MOLLE compatible, or it can be worn utilizing the durable belt loop when camping or hunting.

Like other Ontario Knife products, the Blackbird SK-5 complies with the Berry Amendment as it is proudly 100% made in the U.S.A. The Ontario Knife Company is a subsidiary of publicly traded Servotronics, Inc., (listed as SVT on NYSE-Amex exchange).
