Off the top, product box in bad shape. Found what looks like slight rusting at blade tip. Blemishes to finish, edge. Knife could be a return product repurposed. Purchased with credit card with charge to Lee's innovations. Resell? Unknown
Sharp out of the box, nice make and quality build Bolo - sheath fits well, handle snap/velcro strap is a tad shorter than usable - needs adjustment but will work with patience.
One of the machetes I have purchased I have half dozen maybe 9 machetes this thing is a chopping Beast is great and a hand well-balanced could have been a little shopping when it came. But without chopping it I just took it out of the box and went to work extinct work all day without tiring me at all
A heavy duty chopper! Well balanced and reliable!
Saw my first OKC knife in Kyrgyzstan while serving in the Air Force and I couldn't believe the quality of the folder. This SP 53 Bolo is no different. From the time you hold it in your hand to put it to work, you realize you've got quite a blade in your hands. Rugged, durable, and quite functional. Beyond impressive!
Ontario Sp 53 bolo is really a nice knife. well made. good weight for chopping. Knife like enough to shave feathers for fire starting. Good knife.
Although I have not had a chance to try this knife, I am extremely pleased with it. It looks great and it came with a perfect edge. Amy was a delight to talk to.
This is a beautiful piece of STEEL!!!!!!!! thank you thank you thank you and thank you !!!!
This is a must have knife for Bushcraft, hunting, camping, etc. It is a absolute work Horse that can handle all your baton fire kindling chores and use as a excellent small machete. It has a thick blade with 5160 steel and that is steel that cuts other steel. Plainly put it's a Super Chopping Beast. I can not say enough good things about this knife.
