Ontario Blackbird Noir SK-5 Knife - OK7500PC designed by Paul Sheiter
Field and Stream Magazine's "Best of the Best" in 2011 has been updated in 2014 with a glare reducing black epoxy powder coating. The clever but simple design makes the SK-5 an essential knife for hardcore bushcrafters and starting woodsmen alike. The Black Bird series was designed by custom designer and sheath-maker Paul Scheiter for maximum performance with an elegant simplicity and the signature elements of a center point blade, straight back profile, and flat heel for maximum utility. Featuring high quality 154 CM stainless steel and a black micarta handle, the Black Bird Noir has a special operations capable (SOC) powder coating for added durability. A knife to save your life, now in black.
The Ontario Blackbird Noir SK-5 knife blade is crafted from 154CM. This steel is American made, known for its superior toughness, edge-retaining ability, sharpness and corrosion resistance. The Ontario Blackbird Noir SK-5's knife blade is 0.13 inch thick and features a flat grind.
The perimeter of the Ontario Blackbird Noir SK-5 knife features a Micarta Handle, rounded to provide a comfortable grip and secured to the knife tang with stainless steel Allen screws.
The Blackbird Noir SK-5 knife comes complete with a MOLLE compatible sheath that features a rigid protective insert. The sheath also features a belt loop so that it may be worn on the hip in the traditional belt mount configuration.
From the Blackbird Knives Designer: Paul Sheiter
"I believe the more complicated a product becomes, the more likely it is to fail when your life depends on it. For this reason I designed The Blackbird SK-5 Knife to achieve maximum function delivered through pure simplicity. You won't see gimmicks or gadgets on this knife...only the core essentials that provide the user with comfort and a sharp edge to handle the most demanding wilderness survival tasks." -Paul Sheiter
