Somehow I keep finding myself suddenly having to pick up a new Ontario...  Here's my new SP53, shortly after stripping some branches from a box elder limb (on tonight's pumpkin display).

I think I may pick one up , maybe would make a good general purpose work/camp knife

I'd love to try out a set of those Night Stalkers! Good looking knives there. Would be fun to put those through some paces.

There's not much to add except to say that it looks like Tobias nailed it. It seems to me sometimes when I look at some of our products that have been around a long time (generations, really) that one day there will be nothing but cockroaches, 499s and Old Hickory.

Yeah, good point, since I don't have esp, we will have to wait and see.

Obviously, it is anybody's guess but the track record suggest if it is an item issued by the military it will eventually be collected.  The real question is will the value increase or decrease.

Thank you Tobias, good to know that. By the way, do you think the current ones will someday be collectors items?

Alan aked:

Question, is the pilot survival  knife still made for government issue? And does it have a NSN ? thanks.

Alan, as far as I know the the old Jet Pilot knife is still in inventory however it was succeeded by the newer ASEK. (Aircrew Survival Egress Knife)

See:  https://ontarioknife.com/fixed-blades/tactical2013-09-03-16-56-57/a...

NSN: 1095-01-518-6832

The 499 survival knife is sold on base  and still has an NSN:  7340-00-098-4327

When my wife's fiance went through SERE training the knife he encountered was the ASEK.

I love my RD-4 (yep, that's 1095, with orange G-10 scales)...
