Ontario Pilot Survival Knife

Actually, two knives. I thought I'd lost them and I thought they were Camillus made. Ontario is still in business so in that regard, perhaps I'm not so happy that they aren't Camillus knives but I am glad I found them.

They both have good sharp edges, now, and the sheathes have been waterproofed. The left with a common leather waterproofing formula and the right one with a waxy dye. Made in 1986 and 1987 respectively, these once retailed for about $15 but I understand that with these sheathes, these knives now retail for about $60. Yes, I'm glad I found them. They now rest in the bin with the rest of my knives. 19 quarts of knives...

Someday, some grandkids are going to be mighty happy with all those cool knives.
