Selecting a knife for both personal defense and use afield is not easy. Hunters want a tool; those looking to defend themselves want a weapon. The Ontario Knife Company has created the perfect blend of both with Decima, the newest member of the Fortune Series of tactical knives.
The Ontario Knife Company Decima features a 3-inch, grey powder-coated drop point blade made of 420HC steel. As blade materials go, this is a hard, strong carbon/stainless blend that holds its edge extremely well and is easy to resharpen after extended use. The steel is inherently corrosion resistant, and when you add the fact that the blade is powder coated, it creates the ultimate combination for use in the most abusive of environments.
The handle is made of G10, a fiberglass-based laminate that is known for its rugged durability and light weight. Checkering has been added to the hande to ensure a solid grip, whether you are field dressing an animal, using it as a survival tool or keeping attackers at bay. For added security in hand, Ontario Knife Company designed the grip with an indention for your forefinger and a ribbed, no slip thumb press when pushing the blade with extreme pressure. All total, the Ontario Knife Company Decima checks in at a hair over 8 inches long.
The Ontario Knife Company Decima comes with a fitted plastic sheath featuring an adjustable belt clip. With sheath, the total package weighs in at a scant 9 ounces. So, whether you wear it or carry it in your hunting pack, you will not notice it is there until you need it.
