Editor's Review of Ontario 499 Air Force Survival Knife: By far, one of the most popular Ontario Knives on the market, the 499 Air Force Survival knife is meant to be used! The brown leather wrapped handle is rare if not completely unique to Ontario Knives. The 499 Air Force Survival Knife is a smaller knife than the 498 Marine Combat Knife. Its size does make it fairly comfortable to carry on your belt loop. Overall, the 499 Air Force Survival Knife is easy to get a hold off and put to work.
Superb quality, new in every way. Even the scabbard was unused! The package was delivered quickly. Thank you for an outstanding experience.
Very happy with this knife I just picked up. However, beware that the sheath is designed in a way where the two brass buttons that connect the pocket that the sharpening stone is in protrude through to the inside of the sheath and WILL scratch your blade up. Fixed mine easily with some carefully placed gorilla tape.
Good quality knife, perfect size.
5 star knife. Only downfall to the whole package was the button on the inside of the sheath. It has a tendency to scratch against the side of the knife leaving unnecessary scratches. Other than that it is the total package.
Was as stated! Sheath as stated! All were as description. Very very satisfied with product!!!!
I got this for a friend. He was very pleased and excited to receive it. he had one like it a long time ago.
I had checked reviews from multiple sites and everyone had said the blade comes rounded or super dull, but they either don't know how a knife like this should properly be sharpened or had a bad knife. But my personal experience, it wasn't razor sharp, but a survival knife isn't supposed to be, it comes sharp enough to keep a durable blade and cut through what you need, you can sharpen it with a stone and make it a little easier to cut through things but don't sharpen too much as the blades edge could become brittle and susceptible to dings and damage. I personally rubbed some gun oil across the blade, and leather handle, as well as all the leather on the sheath as it seemed a little dry, but after that this knife so far is one of the best quality knives I've bought. If you want something similar to a Ka-bar but shorter and just different from something everyone else already has, I would recommend this knife.
Just got the knife today. The blade is nowhere near sharp. Not even close. Very disappointing. In addition, I never got an email with a tracking number.
