The OKC Spec Plus Alpha Survival fixed blade is a modern take on the popular SP-2 Survival Knife. This SP-A Survival is built with a 5-inch high carbon steel blade in a durable phosphate coating. It features a full skeleton tang and an ergonomic molded handle made from grip-enhancing rubber.
This knife feels like an extension of my hand. About as functionally comfortable as I've experienced. The rubber handle provides exceptional grip. Full tang blade with good balance. Ontario's website gives no further explanation on steel type, just "high carbon". Regarding durability and edge retention, I'll repost if decreasing the 5 star is warranted.
Ontario's Factory Edge is great and this knife actually fits the human hand. The blade length is great as it could be a companion to a machete. Tip is reinforced with the wide belly allow for deep slicing. I hope Ontario continues to add more variety next year.
