Editor's Review of Ontario 498 Marine Combat Knife: I believe the 498 Marine Combat Knife is one of the best offerings by Ontario Knife Company. With a price point under $50, this knife is meant to be tactical in nature, but is ideal for use as a camping knife, hunting knife or survival knife. The handle on the 498 Marine Combat Knife isn't so long that it feels off-balance and the grip holds firm even when wet and the butt won't let your hand slip off. A good sized 7" blade is just long enough for this style of knife. Overall the 498 Marine Combat Knife is one of my favorites and is a good choice for daily/frequent use.
